Insider view of would-be terrorist activity quietly but forcefully packs a punch.

Vividly depicting the indignities of the flesh, "Porfirio" offers a harshly sensual portrait of a man imprisoned by paralysis and the callousness of the state.
| Original Score: 3/5

This is a sui generis work -- warm, sporadically funny, deeply human, and altogether beguiling.

Part po-faced dramatization, part documentary and all affectless true-crime curio.

Porfirio's own perverse bid, via an eager filmmaker, to impress us that he may be disabled and feeling on the emasculated side. But some in-your-face unsimulated sex can still show the world what a macho stud in bed he can be. The pleasure is all his.
