Critics reviews

This is the true “guilty secret” that the film finds it impossible to admit: at no moment do the Dominican characters exist as anything other than repulsive figures. . . . It would be hard to reduce the script’s possibilities in any more pitiful way; the polemical fiction promised by the nightmare prologue comes to be transformed into a sordid genre film, as if it were scared by its own critical potential.
