Sin Nombre Review

Screen Shot 2015-09-16 at 6.20.55 PM    Sin Nombre is a tough to watch, realistic film about the journey from Central America towards the U.S. Sure it has some nice moments on top of the training, some nice touching moments, but as a whole Sin Nombre is a raw, honest portrayal of how Central American gangs act. Even though the dialogue is true to the characters of the film, it did bother me here and there, the acting is really good. But the standout in this film is not any of the actors, Fukunaga’s directing, as always, and we even got a little, sort of precursor to Beasts of No Nation with the Smiley sub-plot. In the end, Sin Nombre is a strong directorial debut by Cary Joji Fukunaga.
