Slow start, wonderful finish
26 June 2016 | by akdubois-34734See all my reviews

This is what a documentary should be. Don't give up on it if you feel like it's too slow at the beginning— there is such a rewarding pay-off. This is a timely film right now with all the contention about immigration and refugees in the world. You'll get to know a handful of constructions workers making an elevated highway in Mexico city, but you feel like every stranger you see after this has a very rich and hidden life. This is the reality for so much of the world, and it worth realizing if you are one of the privileged ones living in the US or Wester Europe. Juan Carlos Rulfo clearly got to know these people very well, and cares about them a great deal. So will you.
