All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

These four portraits of poor Latin American immigrants living in New York City draw out our fury over the large gap between the haves and the have-nots in America.

it is the absence of any kind of inner force in the film that disturbs me more than its morbid subject matter

January 22, 2002 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A haunting, compassionate look at the day-to-day lives of all too many New Yorkers.

February 21, 2001 | Full Review…

A work of film art that isn't in the least "artsy" because it is so deeply felt and so disciplined in its understated and unsentimentalized depiction of real lives.
