  • 499 wants to subvert the usual narrative of violence in Mexico. In this effort, it's an ambitious and brave -but finally disappointing- attempt at docufiction. [Full review in Spanish]

    March 22, 2021 | Rating: 6.8/10 | Full Review…
  • Weaving these testimonies into a poetical whole, with gorgeous landscape photography and moments of Jodorowskyesque phantasmagoria, 499 is a unique filmic essay with great depth and beauty.
