Critic Reviews for Chulas Fronteras

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (5)

  • Drawing connections between music, cooking and daily life in Blank's signature fashion, the film is warm-hearted without ignoring the troubles immigrants have always endured.

  • Despite the exuberance of the beat, Chulas Fronteras doesn't neglect the political side of life. Key to this film is the problem of crossing a line that, as Octavio Paz wrote, is not a border, but a scar.

    Sep 26, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Rather than rely on false framing devices or obnoxious narration, Blanks lets his words and images explain everything.

    Sep 26, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a romantic portrait of the border, and despite the farm labor issues, a place better defined by barbacoa, large families, and some of the most rousing acoustic dance music on the planet.

    Sep 25, 2019 | Full Review…
  • An urgent reminder to Latinos nationwide that the traditions of our past can never be erased, appropriated or walled off without a fight. It's in our blood.
