Atzin Ortiz González's rating of the film Museo

I think Museo shares the same problem as Güeros: its merely an exercise in style while the scrip goes everywhere and nowhere at the same time. The opening quote and the final line of dialogue suggest something that is never fully explored or accomplished throughout. Taking apart some magnificent sequences (the heist being the highlight) it's never as grandiose as an exaggerated version of the basis of its history.
