Longshot film, big issue, big talent!
18 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

A scathing and topical indictment of violence against Hispanics, ironically, this nuanced, assured little thriller unexpectedly has the saga-like feel, interweaving themes, generational conflicts, and stinging, original violence that reminded me of Italian textured epics like Visconti's "The Leopard" and Coppola's "The Godfather." The film isn't expensive or slick, but if you want to catch the budding, bold talent of director, Robert Fontaine, mastering perhaps the smallest film with the greatest narrative sweep of the year with a tough cast of newcomers, in addition to the most sympathetic bad guy I've ever seen played by the remarkable Michael Brainard, check this one out. The latest Tom Hanks movie will be around a while. Check out "Mi America before it disappears and is as overlooked as off-the-cuff prejudice against Hispanics by a Presidential candidate.
