Considering the money this film cost to make, its short shooting schedule, and its unpandering ethnic content, it's a triumph.
A promising debut that makes us anticipate this Columbia University film grad's sophomore work.
Buoyed by strong performances from Perez and Miami-resident Milian, Washington Heights overcomes the familiarity of its premise through its passion and conviction.
Washington Heights is sloppy and often undernourished, but it convincingly creates a neighborhood throbbing with activity and caring.
Deserves a wide audience hungry for sympathetic, three-dimensional people caught up in something bigger than themselves.
Washington Heights may not always be great, but director Alfredo de Villa lights an undeniable fire in the movie's belly.
may inspire some to get off at 191st street
De Villa has a light touch that instills the film with a certain charm that saves the day
A solid effort by the talented de Villa in his directorial debut.
The performances are uniformly fine, with Perez showing a heavy amount of presence and complexity.
The film has an urgency and assured street-level realism that is rare for any film, let alone one by a first-time director.
An affecting reworking of a traditional story, told with passion, sensitivity, and a little clumsiness.
