The cinematography is stunning, the images horrifically powerful, but Mr. Reyes's point would be better served if he pulled back a bit on the poetic narration.
Reyes brings a smart visual artist's compositional eye to capturing the people and environment on the Mexican side of the divide.
Rodrigo Reyes' documentary... is at times too elliptical for its own good, but it delivers a haunting portrait that stands in marked contrast to the incendiary arguments usually attendant to its subject matter.
A searing, horrifying, at times starkly beautiful documentary ode to the netherworlds surrounding the U.S.-Mexico barrier.
This vivid and haunting essay steps away from the debate about illegal immigration.
An intellectually impressive and refreshingly angry documentary.
Purgatorio comes at the tragedies of borders again and again, finding different angles, reimagining histories and lives. In doing so, it asks you to open your eyes.
A scary and stirring reporting of the reality of life on the Mexican / US border.
The reference to Dante might be obvious even if the USA is no paradise for the undocumented workers crossing the border.
The film, although it positions itself in dialogue with contemporary debates about the border, eschews a clearly delineated historical narrative.
