  • At once mesmerizing and self-questioning.

    August 28, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Whether Sauper's travels delivered a cohesive movie this time is debatable, but what he does find is always interesting.

    August 27, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A hypnotic immersion into a country and culture embargoed by decades of our country's foreign policy, "Epicentro" combines the absurdist cinematic meditations of Werner Herzog with... John Gianvito's poetic investigations into American imperialism.

    August 27, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It alternates political ponderings with a loose and discursive subtext in which Hubert Sauper explores the idea of Cuba as an island paradise.

    August 25, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Epicentro may not have an imperialist lens, but it still feels like a colonizing one.

    March 2, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Despite the filmmaker's evident fondness for the people and nation, this impressionistic feature feels frustratingly obtuse, unfocused and unstructured.
