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.
Incisively intimate, it's a small but stirring snapshot of a gifted, hopelessly lonely soul.
Whether intentional or not, Mateo left a bitter aftertaste -- and Matthew Stoneman's story becomes one so much more grating than intriguing.
A deceptively incisive portrait of a man living life on what he thinks ought to be his own terms, Mateo makes for easy listening and consciously troubling viewing.
An uplifting testament to the notion that it's still possible for a sinner to find his true calling and turn his life around after first paying his debt to society.
