  • Draining the color in service of the disillusioned youth may initially seem detrimental to the depiction of Mexico, but the gorgeous and striking cinematography emits its own radiance, capturing every gradient of silver.

  • It plays like a dreamy, structurally fractured Richard Linklater homage to the French new wave.

  • Seek this one out, then make a friend happy by forcing them to see it too.

    November 19, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A very smart debut.

    November 19, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • "Güeros" is brutal, ironic, madcap, and grim.

    September 17, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Handsomely shot by Damian Garcia in full-frame black-and-white, Güeros is at times both painfully arty and arbitrarily plotted.
