Audience Reviews for Victimas del Pecado


Good gawd almighty. American melodrama simmers- this Mexicans boils his until there's nothing left but grounds. Pimps, whores, murder, prison, abandoned babies- but that's not preventing el Indio from stopping down every five minutes for a hot Cuban musical number. Fernandez makes even The Archers look tame in comparison to the way he throws the kitchen sink, the phone book, the Bible, and the Virgen de Guadalupe into any scene to make it that much more powerful. The shot sequence of the heroine wandering through the train tracks is Borzage meets Shirley Clarke.
