No One Gets Out Alive

No One Gets Out Alive ★★½

What is this movie supposed to be about? The American exploitation of (undocumented) immigrants? Grief? Colonialism? It touches on all of these topics, and the Big Bad sort of combines each theme – but I don’t think this movie ever fully explores anything. You really have to form your own argument for it to be satisfying (maybe reading the ending as “Ambar reclaiming her indigenous culture as a weapon against Anglo oppressors”), but the movie should be doing way more of that work itself.

Still, I really like Cristina Rodlo’s performance, and I think there’s a better story buried under the end result.
