Museum (Museo) approaches familiar genre territory from a refreshing new perspective that's as exciting visually as it is narratively.

"Museo" is slightly frustrating on first watch, as its themes lie partly hidden behind Bernal's intentionally abrasive performance and the mix-and-match filmmaking of Ruizpalacios.
Moviegoers looking for the kind of zip found in an "Ocean's" movie may feel a bit lost at sea with "Museo" and its offbeat rhythms and quirky charms. But the rewards definitely will be greater, if you keep an open mind.
Even after the story runs out, it's still a joy to watch.
"Museo" is the work of a genuinely creative directorial talent, and the early family scenes, richly detailed and shrewdly acted, provide just the right emotional context for this squabbling, indecisive gang of two.
With his characters unable to fence the goods, writer-director Alonso Ruiz Palacios has no place to turn but in the direction of head-scratching surrealism.
"Museo" is a fun, stylish, singular heist flick that's about so much more than the theft itself.
Ruizpalacios' fictionalized account, even with all its embellishments, has far more honesty in it than any confession could hold.
Ruizpalacios loses his way towards the end...It's a sour note in an otherwise highly watchable hybrid of a film.
Ruizpalacios relies on anecdotes to show reflections about time, sense of responsibility, identity and art itself. [Full Review in Spanish]
Even knowing the outcome of their crime, both characters elicit sympathy and you wish them well, despite the sheer ignominy of their nationally impacting theft
...cinematographer Damián García knows exactly how to shoot it, the boys feet magnified as the gingerly step through archeological models, his camera swiveling until they are upside down on screen, then casting their shadows on a wall...
. Bernal is too old to play ingénue, but his commitment to the film's genuine if sophomoric passion is laudable. The film's deep patriotism is remarkable.
