Valley of Tears (2003)
Critic Reviews for Valley of Tears
The story didn't travel far beyond the onion fields where Mexican-American laborers worked in harsh conditions for subsistence wages.
An ultimately moving effort that well illustrates the often hopeless situation faced by the people whose lives it depicts.
Dense, contradictory and distressingly honest, Valley of Tears is that rarity among political documentaries: a genuinely thought-provoking film.
Perry, a longtime filmmaker, should have given the doc more urgency and punch.
A vivid record of a 1979 strike by Mexican American migrant farmworkers in the onion fields of Raymondville, Texas.
The movie leaves us with a lot of questions, but its rawness draws attention to the cataclysmic social shift the workers are trying to achieve and the long odds against them.
