Movie Info

This 1976 Mexican feature is based on a reportedly real incident which took place in 1968. When a group of hikers happen upon a village governed by a paranoid and fanatical priest, they are labelled as communists and desecrators and are lynched by the bespelled townspeople. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

  • ...stripped from all this historical and cultural context, many modern viewers unfamiliar with Mexican cinema might find the film ponderous, uneven, and even disengaging.

  • [T]he portrait of a community leader manipulating the ignorant and illiterate to blindly follow him through fear, xenophobia, and religion is relevant to any time and place ...

  • a particularly sharp, unrelenting portrait of how groups and individuals-anywhere at any time-can be demonized to the point of inciting physical violence

    Apr 3, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A deeply disturbing study of mass hysteria, a lasting cultural document of "a shameful memory"...and a culturally specific but widely relevant snapshot of that late-'60s moment of student rebellion being met by violent institutional crackdowns. [Blu-ray]

Audience Reviews for Canoa

½

Religous intolerance and mass control is alive and well in Mexico. Despise this being based on something that happen in the 60's it could happen in these days, this country has barely changed at all.
