Critic Reviews for The Matador
The Matador reserves judgment while raising the core issue concerning this traditional ritual: deep, poetic cultural expression or glorified animal cruelty?
[The filmmakers] capture the paradox of beauty and cruelty that charges their entire film. The Matador is rightly exciting -- and unsettling.
Mostly The Matador romanticizes a brutal tradition that has no place in the 21st century.
Stripping away centuries of civilization, The Matador confronts something primal in human nature, daring us to do the same.
The Matador suffers from a very predictable, almost staged quality when capturing Fandila's unsequined life outside the ring.
