Movie Info

Mateo follows America's most notorious gringo mariachi singer on his misadventures in Cuba. Matthew Stoneman dreamed of pop stardom. Instead, he went to jail, learned Spanish, and emerged as "Mateo," America's first white mariachi singer. Mateo is on the brink of completing an album of original songs in Havana. But his estrangement from friends and family, his criminal past, and his love for Cuban women could derail him on his quest for fame.

  • It's easy to see what drew filmmaker Aaron I. Naar to his eponymous subject in "Mateo," but it's almost impossible to share his enthusiasm.

  • What begins as a quirky portrait of the artist as a gringo mariachi troubadour proves to be a telling study of a lost soul whose palpable passion for his music acts as a surrogate for more meaningful human contact.

  • A hazy portrait of an odd character whose backstory offers multiple attention-getting hooks.

    August 17, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Incisively intimate, it's a small but stirring snapshot of a gifted, hopelessly lonely soul.

    August 4, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Mateo won't do much for an average viewer, but those interested in the subject matter will find themselves having a good time with it.

    June 20, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Whether intentional or not, Mateo left a bitter aftertaste -- and Matthew Stoneman's story becomes one so much more grating than intriguing.
