Critic Reviews for Papi Chulo

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

  • It's the synergistic performances of Matt Bomer, playing raw and broken, and Alejandro Patino, conveying decency and nonjudgmental compassion behind his deadpan raised eyebrows, that makes the movie click.

  • A scrupulously low-key and unassumingly ingratiating dramedy...

  • Butler defuses cliché with keen observation, not only in terms of Sean's sense of loneliness, but regarding Ernesto's guilt about his own duplicity.

  • Apart from fantastic performances from its cast, especially Bomer and Patiño, Papi Chulo's biggest strength is the subtlety and grace with which it deals with the wide cross-section of issues it touches upon.

  • Just like Sean, Papi Chulo's heart is clearly in the right place but, just like Sean, it has very little regard for Ernesto's feelings and needs.

    Oct 9, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Despite straightening into a character study of a rich, famous white guy dealing with loneliness and a fractured state of mind, Papi Chulo is involving largely because of Bomer's lived-in performance.
