The Gangs of El Salvador
2 March 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

The pic's subject matter is unmistakeably highly interesting and the director's no-holds-barred approach certainly deserves accolades, but if you really want to delve deeply into a society's underbelly there's more to it than just filming all the misery you encounter and stringing it together as you like it.

Individually, the glimpses of gang life are unsettling and positively disturbing, but where's the assortative hand of an author who puts the impressions into an extensive perspective? It's all rather haphazard and thus ineffectively presented, relying too much on its basic impact than on analytical and informative commentary.
