Sin Nombre

PhotobucketPhotobucketTense, unrelentingly grim drama of two people whose paths cross violently atop a moving train: a Honduran girl attempting to emigrate to the US with her family, and a Mexican gang member attempting to rob them. Film’s ability to seamlessly combine a story about immigration with gang warfare is fascinating. The action feels completely authentic in its gritty portrayal. Impressive feature debut for 31-year-old Californian, Cary Joji Fukunaga.
