Critic Reviews for La Camioneta: The Journey of One American School Bus

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (23)

  • Kendall makes his documentary memorable by resisting the urge to give crime center stage. Instead he focuses on the lives being quietly and doggedly built, even if at a great risk.

  • It's well worth seeing.

  • What makes "La Camioneta" so interesting is not so much the story that it tells as it is the way that Kendall has chosen to tell it.

    November 1, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • This sense of childlike wonder, and the respect accorded everyone involved in prolonging the bus's usefulness, are all the more impressive given that Kendall concludes with a sobering assessment of widespread civilian violence in Central America.

    October 31, 2013 | Full Review…
  • The film wrings an almost bizarre amount of political, humanistic and spiritual substance out of this limited frame.

    'La Camioneta'. An eye-opening look into the violent, high stakes life of a bus driver in Guatemala, which is so jarringly far-flung from what you'd expect. Surprisingly philosophical too!
