Critic Reviews for Mateo

  • Whether intentional or not, Mateo left a bitter aftertaste -- and Matthew Stoneman's story becomes one so much more grating than intriguing.

    August 28, 2015 | Rating: 6.7/10 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    August 21, 2015 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    August 20, 2015 | Full Review…
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
