Realistic performances and genuine emotions make Matthew Bonifacio's quiet charmer Amexicano much more than just another preachy treatise on illegal immigration.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

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.
