Critic Reviews for 8 Murders a Day

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5)

[Although it's] somewhat repetitive and not terribly well-organized, it shines an important light on what the filmmaker deems "the greatest human rights disaster in the world today."

January 5, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A morbidly fascinating topic that receives regrettably clumsy treatment.

June 7, 2011 | Full Review…

Though underdeveloped, Charlie Minn's passionate look at Mexico's saddest city is indisputably moving.

May 20, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Pointing the finger at neoliberalism, American drug laws and a general disinterest in "the extermination of the poor," Mr. Minn creates a scattered but thought-provoking diatribe.

May 19, 2011 | Rating: 4/5

Bowden's devastatingly casual assessments give the film much of its punch, but, ultimately, the barrage of simple assertions fails to cohere into an argument.

March 2, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Good intentions trump filmmaking skills in far too many social-issue documentaries, and Charlie Minn's 8 Murders a Day is definitely one of them.
