Critic Reviews for Circo
Circo takes you to the edge of human experience on a path none of this summer's superhero daredevils would ever consider taking.
It says as much about human nature as it shows about struggling entertainers.
Sort of a modern-day version of "Toby Tyler," only without a frisky, mischievous Mr. Stubbs as comic relief.
"Circo'' offers a fascinating mix of backstage drama and family dynamics.
Audience Reviews for Circo
Great Documentary about a circus family trying to hold it all together, in rural Mexico. Exciting and heartbreaking all at once.
A remarkable and heartfelt documentary about the "life" of a Mexican touring circus family -- rife with challenges mixed with dedication to family and the lure of the "show." Marvelously assembled without being intrusive, this is a memorable film, worthy of your attention.
Really, really great filmmaking. A careful documentary about the grit of 3rd world countries, the idea of family, the potential for fame. I'm really glad to have caught this one, that otherwise didn't jump out at me having seen the trailer.
