Sometimes difficult to stomach, the film captures the fragility of normal life in such a hotbed of crime and disorder.

Graceland ... has a ruthlessness rarely attempted by its North American counterparts.

The film feels increasingly exploitative as it becomes more overtly political, illustrating various forms of injustice with blunt, sensationalistic imagery.

Graceland is more concerned with the moral compromises of individuals than the greater failures of society.

Filipino-American filmmaker Ron Morales gets raw and real in a return to his cultural roots in teeming Manila for this sex trafficking thriller, though flirting with the boundaries between outrage and exploitation.

Graceland is a deceptively simple thriller with a smart setup and a cruelly efficient execution.

Morales, who also wrote the script, knows how to pull at our heartstrings, especially with scenes involving child prostitutes.

Graceland is an extremely bleak, yet very interesting film, that builds suspense through a tight story and quality acting rather than gimmicks.

Take the worst day you've ever had at your job and multiply it by ten. That still probably won't compare with the day that Marlon Villar (Arnold Reyes) is having in Graceland.

The social and economic pitfalls facing the vast urban underclass of Manila's sprawling metropolitan area are depicted with unflinching regard in Ron Morales' observant low-budget Filipino feature, a blend of ruthless crime drama and grim thriller.

This is not a movie to see on a first date or with your family, but please do go see it, because Morales has pulled off something remarkable -- a fast-paced, tough, and twisty film that confronts real social problems.

A nerve-shredding Philippines-set thriller made with such skill that its low budget barely registers.

The sins of the fathers are visited upon their daughters in "Graceland," a tense and tough-minded family drama in which young girls are as likely to be victimized by plenty as by poverty.

It is one of the bleakest movies you'll see all year, but its dramatic contours mark Morales as a filmmaker with the ability to craft a tight and unnerving story.

None of this could work without a stellar performance from Reyes, who anchors the film with distress and panic, but also with basic humanity.
