A horror movie? Nope -- documentary. Though there is, I think, a good horror movie to be made here.

The film has a tendency to repeat itself, even within its short running time of 82 minutes, but is still able to express a sincere sorrow.

It's a simple film with a direct message, but the glimpses of the surrounding social culture that has adapted to the horrors give (it) its identity.

It's a testament to the filmmakers' subtle storytelling skill that we come to see these boys as heroes as well as victims.

While political and social context is kept to a minimum, the darkly poetic images they capture speak volumes about what the miners go through.

At times it feels as if not cameras but the audience has been transported to the high mountains of Potosi, Bolivia -- and not so much physically but somehow spiritually.

Basilio narrates his tale with such wit and wisdom that one comes away from the film wondering how much youthful potential is slowly being choked to death deep within the bowels of the earth.

Guaranteed to leave you outraged at the way children -- and, for that matter, adults -- are exploited by mining companies.

Directors Kief Davidson and Richard Ladkani go underground themselves to expose a form of near-slavery instituted by the Spanish conquistadors more than four centuries ago.

Kief Davidson and Richard Ladkani's documentary The Devil's Miner is so polished that it might pass for a scripted narrative feature, but that's not a bad thing.

A sobering day trip, more for its hints of a forgotten history of culture collision than its sensible but rote socioeconomic sympathies.

A study in courage and harrowing portrait of a 14-year-old boy who works in a Bolivian silver mine, The Devil's Miner is an unforgettable journey through hell under the earth, where Satan is worshipped as king.

Though they're telling a story of potentially deadly child labor, filmmakers Kief Davidson and Richard Ladkani never amp up the drama, wisely preferring a straightforward approach that respects the bleak reality of their subjects.
