Critic Reviews for Mojados: Through the Night

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (2)

  • Brings a human face to a controversial political issue.

    July 15, 2005
  • Modest but memorable, the first film from 24-year-old director Tommy Davis follows four Mexican friends as they attempt to sneak into the U.S. by trekking through the Texan desert.

    May 20, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • Davis, who grew up in the border town of McAllen, Texas, obviously wants to put a human face on the countless people who try to sneak across the border, but he fails to elicit any substantive information from his subjects.

    May 20, 2005 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • Mojados: Through the Night manages to capture the danger, fatigue and tedium of an illegal border crossing from Mexico without becoming tedious itself.

    May 19, 2005 | Rating: 4/5
  • A lean, effective slice of agitprop enlivened with a New Wave voice-over and an unusual emotional directness.

    May 17, 2005
  • A documentary about Mexicans trying to evade the border patrol to get into Texas. And watching the movie is a bit like their journey: periods of boredom and irritation punctuated by intense excitement.

  • Davis' tough, man-of-the-people narration is often annoying, but his words can't diminish the power of his story.

Audience Reviews for Mojados: Through the Night

  • Jan 12, 2008
    The subtitles went by too quickly at times (and I'm a fast reader). They were also difficult to read when the background was white. I'm against illegal immigration because I see first hand how it is overloading our health care system. That being said, I'm glad the border patrol officers are humane to these poor people when they find them. This documentary does show how difficult it is for Mexicans to make the crossing and some of the hardships they endure.
