Critic Reviews for Gringo Trails

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (2)

  • [Pegi Vail's] documentary about the effects of global tourism... should be mandatory viewing for anyone who's ever thumbed through a Lonely Planet guidebook with an eye toward visiting an exotic destination.

  • This well-meaning but superficial film skips across the globe, raising some provocative arguments but advancing few.

    September 3, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Vail's film earnestly interrogates authenticity even as her camera lingers on a beach without footprints, inviting the viewer to walk.

    September 2, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Despite the trend toward what one clever subject calls backpackaging, the cleverly edited and beautifully shot film ends on a hopeful note with the emergence of sustainable models in places like Bhutan.

    June 28, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • While the film includes numerous images showing plastic detritus and tire tracks, it also offers several testimonies by travelers relating specific experiences.

    September 18, 2014 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • It isn't perfect and could have been much tougher-minded - especially about the country's "selling" of tourism - but this film should start a necessary and overdue conversation.
