Critic Reviews for José
"José" brings to light the promise of a director as compassionate as he is observant.
It's an evocative movie... The big problem I have is that José as a character is a bit of a blank.
The satisfactions of "José" as a whole offers are considerable, and they begin with the human element.
"José" is hardly the first movie to spotlight a young person navigating their homosexuality... Nonetheless... this sophomore feature.. feels like a singular and essential entry in that subset of LGBTQ coming-of-age films with an international beat.
The film delicately depicts the hardship of being gay in a Catholic culture and the pressure for machismo in a crime-ridden country.
