Performers, Cast and Crew:
Box Office - 01/21/2009
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The director filmed this tense blend of sociological drama and street thriller on real locations, working with a saturated palette that utilized natural decaying backgrounds with hot spots of color....It's always thrilling to discover an emerging talent with enormous potential."
Variety - 03/12/2009
"A big new talent arrives on the scene with SIN NOMBRE. Writer-director Cary Joji Fukunaga's enthralling feature debut takes viewers into a shadow world inhabited by many but noticed by few -- that of Central America migrants making the perilous trip through Mexico to get the United States border."
USA Today - 03/20/2009
"SIN NOMBRE is a powerful, wrenching thriller that weaves together several absorbing stories set in Central America. It is also the most moving and well-told saga of Latin American immigrants bound for the USA since 1983's EL NORTE."
Los Angeles Times - 03/20/2009
"[A]n evocative and impressive first feature....There is bitter and breathtaking truth in the story and in the story-telling..."
New York Times - 03/20/2009
"[SIN NOMBRE is] written and directed by the young American Cary Joji Fukunaga....What keeps you watching is his superb eye. Working with his cinematographer, Adriano Goldman, he fills in the cracks of his story with moments of beauty..."
Entertainment Weekly - 03/27/2009
"This Sundance prizewinner is a journalistic saga of immigration directed with a thriller's physicality by Cary Joji Fukunaga....Whenever SIN NOMBRE turns violent, it seizes you with its convulsive skill..." -- Grade: B-
Wall Street Journal - 03/20/2009
"This astonishing debut feature announces the arrival of a lavishly gifted filmmaker, Cary Joji Fukunaga....The scope is epic and the achievement, though solidly grounded in conventional storytelling, is a revelation."
Chicago Sun-Times - 04/01/2009
4 stars out of 4 -- "It contains risk, violence, a little romance, even fleeting moments of humor, but most of all, it sees what danger and heartbreak are involved. It is riveting from start to finish."
Total Film - 07/28/2009
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's the scenes of immigrants heading north atop moving trains which resonate the most -- a testament to Adriano Goldman's brilliant, expansive cinematography."
