Critic Reviews for The Wandering Soap Opera (La Telenovela Errante)

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (10)

  • The film hits on all of the director's favorite themes - paranoia, narrative intricacy, fleeting but meaningful friendships - and the surrealist humor is often riotous.

    April 3, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Deadpan and over-the-top, these scenes make for a view of turbulent reality that is episodic and nonsensical - and wholly Ruizian.

    June 7, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The Wandering Soap Opera is only as powerful as your willing-ness to meet Ruiz and his collaborators on their brain-scrambling level.

    May 17, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • It was clearly made with slender financial means and abundant enthusiasm, and it functions simultaneously as a critique of the self-serious idiocy of authority and a celebration of the anarchic power of imagination.

    May 15, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Film as séance: this is Valeria Sarmiento's 2017 completion of her late husband's... haphazard super-16mm film shoots in 1990 that did not become one of the hundred-plus finished works of his maddeningly prolific lifetime.

    June 1, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
  • Finished by Sarmiento after Ruiz's passing, The Wandering Soap Opera is a thrilling work, an experiment in genre that evolves into something intensely surreal and political.
