Go see Sin Nombre

Sin Nombre

Chalk it up to being out of the Sundance loop this year, but the amazing film Sin Nombre just about flew under my radar. This is an incredible story of loss and redemption set against a backdrop of gangland Mexico. Young actors Edgar Flores and Paulina Gaitan lead an excellent cast directed (and written) by up and commer Cary Fukunaga. It is easy to see how this film won both the directing and cinematography prizes at Sundance. It is still playing in LA (Laemmle’s Monica and Playhouse) and in Seattle (Egyptian) but with the big summer movies rolling in, don’t expect it to be around long. This one will surely end up on the end of year top 10.
