Critic Reviews for Gypsy
The general texture of the film is constantly engaging-the way that these people, long accustomed to abuse and disadvantage, have made for themselves an accommodating and comfortable culture.
There are moments of wry humor, and of improbable beauty, in the dust blowing over a riverbank or even the blinking light over an emergency-room door.
The movie is vibrant and modern, and doesn't treat MiigÃ¡r as a mute, unknowable alien.
Best are the film's tender ghostly visitations from Dad, evoked with a minimum of artiness, and the authentic, impoverished locations.
You might call it an old story with higher stakes, but a keen sensitivity to its moral difficulties and enlivening details sets Gypsy urgently apart.
[It] doesn't try to counteract stereotypes of the Roma people as shiftless, thieving hustlers. But it goes a long way toward explaining the antisocial behavior.
