Critic Reviews for Which Way Home

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (8)

  • Without resorting to any background narration, Which Way Home raises questions about cross-border immigration policies and the macro-economic causes that propel people from struggling countries to stream into developed ones.

  • Despite the subject matter -- terrified children, many who haven't seen their families in years -- Cammisa never gets sentimental, and instead lets those closest to the subject do the talking.

  • Dramatically and pictorially pulls its weight.

  • Foregrounds the idealistic vulnerability of the boys at its center, risking everything for a better life they can barely imagine.

  • This is uncomfortable subject matter... But it's also tremendous, eye-opening filmmaking -- and that's always worth watching.

  • Investigates illegal immigration and child labor in a very human way. We ride freight trains with teenagers trying to get to the US for a better life. Exceptionally effective verite filmmaking from Rebecca Cammisa.
