Critic Reviews for Gringo Trails

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

[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.

Sep 18, 2014 | Full Review…

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

Sep 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.

Sep 2, 2014 | Full Review…

While the film includes numerous images showing plastic detritus and tire tracks, it also offers several testimonies by travelers relating specific experiences.

Sep 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.

Sep 3, 2014 | Full Review…

Pegi Vail beautifully edited film somehow addresses a lot, but ultimately says little.
