  1. Graveyard Poet's rating of the film Canoa

    Political horror concerning the brainwashing of the citizens in Canoa by a paranoid priest and how their fear of the communist infiltration of their church manipulated their mob mentality to brutal violence against Puebla university workers. Deeply disturbing and unflinching.

    if you interested into some facts about the communist take on mexico during the olympics and how most catholic priest brainwash people with fear this movie is the one for you based on actual events

  5. Bernardo Anderson's rating of the film Canoa

    An incredibly told story of power, lies, mob mentality, and prejudice. It feels completely not dated and relevant in today's age.

  6. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Canoa

    I'm more familiar with Mexican born directors than with Mexican cinema and had never heard of this film before. A black sunglasses Godardian priest manipulates the ignorant population of a rural little town in order to protect his benefits. A lynching ensues. Great screenplay. Strongly recommnended.

  10. Berjuan's rating of the film Canoa


  11. VENIMOS LOS JODIMOS Y NOS FUIMOS's rating of the film Canoa

    Inspirandose en un famoso caso de nota roja, Cazals consiguió -sin proponerselo- una brillante alegoría sobre los sucesos del 68. Reflexión sobre la manipulación religiosa y la descomposición del entorno político/social mexicano de los años 70, la cuál a pesar de ser una cinta que no puede categorizarse dentro de un género cómo el terror, resulta una experiencia genuinamente aterradora.
