There's obviously a stark, chilling story here, but Portillo is a sloppy moviemaker.
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.
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.'
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.
Portillo makes a powerful indictment -- though without the evidence to get a conviction -- against the powers that be.
[A] film of appalling facts.
Look, I know this documentary isn't easy to watch. It will make you angry. That's good; it should make you angry.
One can only hope that Portillo's film has served as catalyst, and now something will be done.
The tragedy, unfairness and sheer repulsive indignity of the situation speak, in ghastly sorrow, all for themselves.
