All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (11)

  • Long stretches of quiet help section off the film's eerie chapters. Here, El mar la mar leaves the viewer to their own thoughts, much in the way migrants might as they journey through "the terrifying silence" of the desert.

  • A timely artwork that captures that desperate life and death pilgrimage across the Sonoran Desert like no other.

    August 6, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The film's narcotic strangeness forces you to look again at a familiar headline story, treated unsensationally and sensitively - though at a patience-testing slow pace.

  • The result is simultaneously elusive and concrete: abstract cinema that packs a punch.

    February 22, 2018 | Full Review…
  • El Mar La Mar is the rare film to subordinate its form to the landscape it's set in. To watch it attentively is to surrender, for ninety minutes, to the slow-motion pace of Sonoran life.

    February 21, 2018 | Full Review…
  • At once a meditation on mortality, a requiem for the lost, and a chilling tone poem, El Mar La Mar is a singular and terrifying evocation of shattered dreams and human longing.
