Archie Del Mundo's rating of the film A Better Life

Not since Tokyo Story a film became pitch perfect in its depiction of raw human emotion. Minimalist direction without the trappings of conscious simplification and subtle notion of reality. Perhaps, one of the best "overlooked" films in the last 10 years. Demian Bichir is the real darkhorse to win the Oscar for Best male lead.
