Drama/Mex

Critics Consensus

Lovely visuals can't save Drama/Mex from its shaky camerawork and thematically uneven plot.

  • Drama/Mex has flashy style but puppetlike characters and unconvincing stories.

    August 16, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • This relentlessly downbeat portrait of numerous troubled characters is ultimately too derivative and familiar for it to connect with art house audiences despite some effective moments and good performances by its mainly youthful cast.

    July 17, 2007
  • Drama/Mex has an overheated plot, but it plays out at a low boil, mainly because Naranjo is more interested in the subtle stresses of human interaction than in shrill desperation.

  • Visually arresting but thematically uneven, Gerardo Naranjo's fictional snapshot of a gritty Mexican beach is simply too desperate to shock us.

    July 13, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Drama/Mex can't see past its nihilistic little nose.

Audience Reviews for Drama/Mex

  • Apr 01, 2008
    The worst part about the awful dialogue said by most of these characters is that it's the most realistic I've seen so far in a Mexican film. The characters fail to have any depth or insight into their lives. They should've just stayed with one of the stories, since the director was unable to fully tell any of the two at once.
