Critic Reviews for Cowboy del Amor
This charming documentary follows Ivan Thompson, the self-proclaimed 'Cowboy Cupid,' as he finds Mexican brides for American men who feel they've exhausted their options on their side of the border.
Thompson is no McNamara, and Cowboy del Amor is no Fog of War. But there is something hypnotic about this self-styled romance expert expounding on the fog of love.
Michèle Ohayon's Cowboy del Amor turns out to be one of the sweetest, funniest and most enjoyable nonfiction films you are likely to see this year.
The film doesn't quite manage to sustain interest for the duration of its 86-minute running time.
Ohayon doesn't judge Thompson or his customers, but you don't need to be a Harvard-educated psychiatrist to realize that the bunch of them are dirty old men who treat women as commodities.
Audience Reviews for Cowboy del Amor
Twisted, fun documentary about the "cowboy cupid." The absurdity and overblown personality of the subject matter and his obliviousness to it is a large part of what makes this film work. A true classic.
This documentary is okay, but it could have been much more engaging. Its pretty much your run of the mill film. You will be moderately engaged and chuckle a little but you won't tell for friends about it and especially not write a letter.
This documentary was the perfect mix of a quirky character study and uncomfortable love story mixed up in a blender and dished up with a side of awesome. I thought the way the director filmed the plight of these men looking for thier future wives in Mexico, was funny but very akward and truthful in a good way. I got so uncomfortable so many times in this film that I was squirming in my seat. This often was when one of the main guys takes his new Mexican wife home to meet his parents and show her his mobile home. Wonderful break from the norm... I highly reccomend it.
