Critic Reviews for El Velador
An eerie look at the human cost of Mexico's drug wars. Filmmaker Natalia Almada turns her lens on a narco-cemetery in Culiacan, the capital of crime-ridden Sinaloa.
The artful compositions tend to make the subject matter seem vaguely unreal; Almada's true subject isn't the drug war itself but the apathy of outside spectators.
After this experience, everything else seems trivial. There's nothing like death to make further discussion unnecessary.
Natalia Almada's eloquent documentary portrait of a sprawling graveyard in Culiacán, Mexico, in the northwestern state of Sinaloa
A piece of lyrical, sideways social reportage that still connects an astounding number of dots.
Sharply conveys what life is like in a traumatized nation.
