ELEPHANTS NEVER FORGET
"The film's siesta-speed pacing lets us bask in a cavalcade of sunny compositions, framed in ample CinemaScope dimensions. Nearly every shot is a joy to behold!"
- Kevin Lee, Time Out New York
"Touching! This supremely poised film...becomes richer and less familiar as it goes along."
- Dennis Lim, LA Times
"A masterwork of storytelling...a seemingly effortless performance of a sort we almost never see."
- Casey Burchby, DVDTalk.com
"One of the most amazing Mexican films in many a year...The Violin is filmmaking in its purest form. The debut film by Francisco Vargas moves us with its lyricism and shakes us with its honesty. A film that's moving, urgent and necessary."
- Guillermo del Toro, Director of Pan's Labyrinth
TIME TO DIE
"Released widely in 1966 to critical acclaim throughout Mexico, Tiempo de morir (Time to Die) marked an auspicious directorial debut for a then 22-year-old Arturo Ripstein. The film, shot in black and white, was co-written by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Carlos Fuentes, two writers who would eventually achieve near mythical status as internationally acknowledged literary giants."
- William Alexander Yankes and Abel Salas, Brooklyn & Boyle
