Critic Reviews for Alambrista!
Roberto endures and escapes one random set of dire circumstances after another without feeling contrived or stopping for cheap sentimental tricks. He even makes a certain selfish choice, but at the time, after what he's been through, who could blame him?
Now the film can be more fully appreciated for what it is: an influential inspiration to Latino filmmakers and a powerful, non-politicized depiction of the wages of American immigration policy. [Blu-ray]
A worthy social drama on the heartbreaking hardships of being a Mexican illegal in the States.
