  • The stories are horrific, if laced with Tarantino-style humor.

  • El Sicario: Room 164 is an almost laughably simple, aggressively drab-looking film, but it packs a wallop.

  • Rosi avoids all embellishments, such as re-creating some of the crimes. A wise choice, since the hit man's narration is compelling and frightening on its own.

    December 28, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Finally less compelling for its random details of multiple brutalities than for its chilling portrait of a country irretrievably rotting from within.

    December 27, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • The film's sparse, almost banal presentation is a virtue, for to boldface the horrors under discussion would only trivialize or sensationalize them, as the Mexican murder magazines do.

    December 27, 2011 | Full Review…
  • Despite his repentance, you sense that this lost soul will be confessing his sins for all eternity.
