The story clearly shows the corruption that permeates life in Mexico at all levels. The subject
matter was well handled and well exposed. Visually, Naranjo could have done a better job. Editing was fine, but the look of the film was washed out, and I don't think it was intentional. The story and the theme would have gained if it would have looked grittier and higher contrast. It felt a bit slow at times, and that could have been corrected with high energy editing, and higher visual rhythm. Overall I found it interesting, subject matter was handled well, and acting was above average. I do recommend it.
