  1. Superfrog's rating of the film Lupe Under the Sun

    Delivers on the dull life of the life as a migrant worker. Of the loss of home, of value, of everything if one is not careful.

  2. Christopher W's rating of the film Lupe Under the Sun

    I remember the Mexicans working around San Diego - solid as a rock as honest as the day.Despicable Donald Trump typifies the evil in America.

  3. nerea's rating of the film Lupe Under the Sun

    Great movie. With very little dialogue, it depicts the dramatic everyday life of an elderly migrant. Moving and quite unsettling.

  4. Chris Gillespie's rating of the film Lupe Under the Sun

    Sad character study of a lonely, alcoholic immigrant. Thanks to some great camerawork and editing, the film captures the setting and mood of Central California spot-on.

  5. lemmontage's rating of the film Lupe Under the Sun

    Character study. What happens to someone when they live on the peripheral and are unable to socialize in a meaningful way with others. Lupe is the mythological hero on his journey, the 'lonesome cowboy', the individual, in his senior years.

  6. ciaran wood's rating of the film Lupe Under the Sun

    Peaches, eggs, beer and then the bike was the last straw. Terrible. Time is precious don't waste it here!!

  7. SiIencio's rating of the film Lupe Under the Sun

    In Lupe... Rodrigo Reyes unleashed a hell of loneliness and disenfranchisement, a trip to nowhere with barely any purpose other than to linger around life. And that is the mood that soaks the ambience. Underneath that mist, everything is cryptic, untold, enigmatic. Unfortunately for the inquisitive viewer Lupe is a shadow that offers no answers however he has the genuinity of feeling very real and very present.

  8. Tja's rating of the film Lupe Under the Sun

    Hate dialogue? This is for you. The lonely Mexican Lupe has a routine of subsistence living across the border as a Californian peach picker. His failing health and bizarre diet of fried egg tortillas and beer scuppers his existence. He doesn't do talking - just the odd phrase cast into an arid desert of silence. Its unclear why he fails to keep in touch with his family, who ultimately shun his offer of money. Sad.

  9. herrmadbeef@gmail.com's rating of the film Lupe Under the Sun

    the writer tried to tell a story but at the end he lost a great opportunity to say something at the end there is nothing to tell just a LONG movie with no meaning the director abused from the bike scenes making them long and useless the do not bring anything good to the table conclusion: this movie do not leave a message a story or anything at the end is dull movie

  10. JL's rating of the film Lupe Under the Sun

    Lupe leads a slow and solitary life, but rather than becoming a touching of sympathetic figure, his complete lack of endearments sap the life from an film that would have worked better as a series of photographs. The dialogue is uninspired, which really hinders any chance at character development. What was likely pitched as a tragic demise comes neutered through a haze of boredom and repetition.

    The story as memory against death and oblivion.
