Transpecos Reviews

February 28, 2017
Some of the intended moral heft goes astray in the heat and dust - but this is still a promising dry run for bigger things.
September 23, 2016
A taut 86 minutes of moral dilemmas, a drug deal gone wrong and a very bad day in the lives of three border guards.
September 9, 2016
Artfully made but wholly accessible for a mainstream audience, it features strong performances but no names in the cast who'll draw attention on their own.
September 8, 2016
Though rife with implausibilities, "Transpecos" is fortified by strong acting and a location whose desolate beauty is a gift to Jeffrey Waldron's serene camera.
September 8, 2016
An effectively moody, well-acted and impressively understated thriller by Greg Kwedar in his feature directing debut.
September 8, 2016
The performances are all solid, especially Luna. And Kwedar's sense of place feels so authentic that you can taste the dust in the back of your throat when the end credits roll.

Low on budget but high on craft and intelligence, Transpecos is as stark yet rewarding as a West Texas landscape at sunset.

Kwedar doesn't offer any easy answers. Instead he points out the problems, how entrenched and intertwined they are, and asks other questions: How far will you go to survive? And will it be enough in the end?

Transpecos burrows deeper into its characters, revealing nuances that bring them to anguished, three-dimensional life as the thriller plot gradually unfolds.

An atmospheric thriller with hardly an ounce of excess fat.
