  • CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Throw Me a Dime

    Un valioso documental, fundadora del llamado Nuevo Cine Latinoamericano. Era entonces la primera gesta de cine comprometido en dicho sector. La mirada realista en la precaria vida de una colonia segregada es casi una remembranza a lo que décadas atrás había realizado Buñuel con "Las hurdes". Lo de Birri sin embargo es más cuestionador. Además de que las imágenes hablan, obliga a que sus mismos personajes hablen.
