Critic Reviews for 186 Dollars To Freedom

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (3)

Unable to shape these events into a dramatic structure, the director, Camilo Vila, resorts to a meandering tale of random indignities suffered by a lead so bland he comes across less as principled than as stupendously naïve.

On every level this production-from Robinson's callow performance to Vila's hackneyed handheld camerawork, punching beats in the stead of the actors-remains firmly on the level of the obvious.
