Only the most callous anti-immigration zealot could fail to find these stories poignant, but there's something awkwardly artificial about the dramatised strand ...
This doc attempts to put a human face on the statistics, not only following the grisly day-to-day of American officials dealing with the bodies, but also exploring the dead man's rural Honduran background.
With its compellingly multifaceted approach, its earnest compassion and a celebrity presence in the form of the actor Gael García Bernal, the documentary could be enlisted in the perennial battle over immigration law.
The results are poignant, yet show the difficulties of applying fiction templates to true stories.
The focus of the film may be the deadly dangers of illegal border crossings, but its true subject is ordinary people and the things they'll do for the ones they love.
The cinematography is exquisite and sometimes it alone moves the story.
But while the film has some truly poignant moments, especially when we hear more from the family John Doe left behind in their own words, the film still struggles to find a singular voice.
Who is Dayani Cristal? marks an accomplished sophomore feature film for Silver that is sure to upset and compel in equal measure.
...tackles some of the more difficult aspects of U.S. immigration policy. Bernal's portions are less compelling than the more strict reportage, but illuminating all the same.
It gets at the heart. But we also learn sober truths.
Actor-producer Gael Garcia Bernal takes a strikingly complex look at the timely issue of human migration from Central America to the United States, which is rarely depicted with such honest humanity.
The man, whose chest is tattooed with the name Dayani Cristal, may be a victim of circumstance, but he is also treated by the filmmakers as a hero on a quest.
