Movie Info

"Señorita Extraviada, Missing Young Woman" tells the haunting story of the more than 200 kidnapped, raped and murdered young women of Juárez, Mexico. Visually poetic, yet unflinching in its gaze, this compelling investigation unravels the layers of complicity that have allowed for the brutal murders of women living along the Mexico-U.S. border. In the midst of Juárez's international mystique and high profile job market, there exists a murky history of grossly underreported human rights abuses and violence against women. Relying on what Portillo comes to see as the most reliable of sources - the testimonies of the families of the victims -" Señorita Extraviada" documents a two-year search for the truth in the underbelly of the new global economy.

Critic Reviews for Senorita Extraviada

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

There's obviously a stark, chilling story here, but Portillo is a sloppy moviemaker.

June 26, 2003 | Rating: 2/5

An important film, worthy of the Special Jury Prize it won at last year's Sundance Film Festival.

The film is shocking, and, for better or worse, Portillo's refusal to offer solace kindles a potent rage that's not easily forgotten.

May 29, 2003 | Full Review…

Lourdes Portillo's elegiac Señorita Extraviada documents with low-key persistence the conditions in Ciudad Juárez that make some say, 'There is no better place in the world to kill a young woman.'

May 14, 2003 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The victims of the crimes described in Senorita Extraviada cry out for justice. Just as their stories cry out for a more-focused, less superficial documentary than this one.

September 20, 2003 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Portillo makes a powerful indictment -- though without the evidence to get a conviction -- against the powers that be.
