[An] assured new feature from director Matthew Bonifacio.
Realistic performances and genuine emotions make Matthew Bonifacio's quiet charmer Amexicano much more than just another preachy treatise on illegal immigration.
This low-key tale of an improbable friendship between an out-of-work Italian-American and a young Mexican illegal alien in Queens maintains an engaging, even keel through bumpy tonal shifts that would derail most indie outings.
the biggest hazard the characters face is not the migra or the desert, but inept writing and, with the exception of Castillo's tender and earnest Ignacio, the cast's flat, amateurish performances.
Culminates in a tableau that seems to sigh in rumination upon a lost America, land of immigrants.
The title suggests shotgun cross-culturalism and, indeed, the movie's different modes and moods don't cohere naturally.
I really liked Amexicano from the start & I guess I was hoping for some feel good type movie & thats the way it started but I didnt get the ending I was hoping for.It is a feel good movie but there's some sadness in there as well.I loved the movie & I would've rated it higher but the ending screwed it for me.I just wished the ending would have turned out the way I wanted it to
