  • A touching and powerful story, very similar to real life, which dares its audience to experience it as personally as possible. [Full review in Spanish]

  • There is a lot to enjoy if you can accept its stylistic choices for what they are and how they help inform the film's unrelentingly stark tone.

  • Ekaj is a hyper-realistic slice of real life; we see into the (often tragic) life of a gay street 'hustler' which is a character we don't often seen portrayed as raw as this on screen.

    August 8, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • a modern day Midnight Cowboy. It's raw, gritty, sensitive, organic and real.

  • Ekaj is a film that will leave you thinking about its message and its characters. Hopefully, it propels viewers to act with kindness towards others, especially those who are different than them.

  • Bold, strong, heavy, gritty, raw, and for the majority of its runtime, an excellent slice of grim realism. Surreal yet sincere, and well worth a watch.
