SIN NOMBRE gets rave from Variety

Posted January 19, 2009

Sin Nombre premiered yesterday at Sundance with audience approval and, more importantly, a rave Variety review. Todd McCarthy, who can carve up a poor Sundance feature, leaving little but the bones and gristle, left little doubt about his feelings for this film:

A big new talent arrives on the scene with “Sin Nombre.” Writer-director Cary Joji Fukunaga’s enthralling feature debut takes viewers into a shadow world inhabited by many but noticed by very few -- that of Central American migrants making the perilous trip through Mexico to get to the United States border.

Congrats to the filmmakers.
