Moving Pictures Magazine

With its vérité footage and synthesized score, Sequestro at times plays like a non-trashy episode of Cops.

Sequestro is terrifying and clear-headed.

Filming over four years and tracking several cases, the Brazilian director Jorge W. Atalla favors a fevered shooting style that's repetitious and disorienting but also effortlessly dramatic.

...a brilliant examination of the horror of kidnapping, showing the real life victims and their families at the time of their anguish; hard to forget.

There are riveting moments, especially in tastefully shot interviews with former captives, who quietly describe their physical and psychological torture.

Although Atalla surely couldn't have intended to desensitize viewers, Sequestro comes very close to exhausting them.

Much of Sequestro looks, basically, like COPS.

Ultimately electrifying, both in what it reveals and how it reveals it.

Though marred by repetition, this film is a four-year labor of love graphically dramatizing the kidnapping industry in Sao Paulo.
