  • A sluggish mix of thriller and drama that lacks the suspense required in one department and the depth needed on the other.

  • The film is carried along by the strength of Mendes' emotionally complex, restrained performance that makes clear that Ester is as much victim as accomplice.

  • Minutes in, it's clear that Coyote Lake is not your run-of-the-mill U.S.-Mexico border get a sense of a filmmaker truly in control of the tone of her film, a bellwether, one hopes, of even more assured films to come.

  • Coyote Lake is hardly a shallow enterprise. Its still waters still run pleasurably deep.
