Critics reviews

Hondo’s passionate, wide-ranging voice-over commentary, addressing the hero in the second person, blends confession and observation, aspiration and despair, societal and personal conflicts.

The style [Hondo] developed in Soleil Ô was taut, anxious, and forged under pressure. Cuts come sharp and fierce; mobile street footage, direct-to-camera interviews, expository dialogue scenes, and passages of steady observation alternate with setpieces in which the camera veers and swerves around its subjects at discomfitingly close range.
