Critic Reviews for Sin Alas

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (4)

  • Sin Alas matches the half-awake feeling evoked by Luis's ruminations - on love, on Cuba's history, and on himself - well enough to feel authentic even when it meanders too far from what makes it most compelling.

  • "Sin Alas" is emotional and dense, thought-provoking and intelligent, and it's all held together by music, Lima's poem, colors, sounds.

    May 4, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Mr. Chace does his finest work with Mr. Padrón, and together director and actor create a portrayal of a man who, even as he's stirred to action, seems increasingly burdened by his sentimental education.

    May 3, 2016 | Full Review…
  • The film's Cuban specificity comes to seem like an opportunistic locale for reenacting a decidedly art-cinematic legacy.

    May 1, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Director Ben Chace's drama offers a sensual, brainy immersion in scenes of Cuban life past and present.

  • On the one hand it's a wonderful look into a culture that we don't particularly see, at times searingly acted... On the other hand, it is an, at times, incomprehensible mixture of memory and modern day that goes off the rails.

  • The nonprofessional actors are engaging, and the settings fascinate, of course. But the period re-creations in his flashbacks are repetitive.
