gabriel guimarães?’s review published on Letterboxd:
Pretty much the weirdest Diaz, meaning it's a 2-hour futuristic action movie. Hesus seems to be bulletproof as he goes around the city after murdering his revolutionary squad for suspecting one of them is a mole. Sometimes it looks and feels very amateurish, mostly because of the acting, but Diaz does direct compelling shoot-outs and the noirish feel (yeah, it's kind of a noir too) is okay. Interesting to see his first movies and how he perfected his political, pessimistic style.
