's review

liked it

Although it's a great ethnographic documentary, but I'm not completely satisfied. I think that Oscar Lewis could not make his audiences sure about his honesty. Especially when Manuel and Consuelo are worshiping American culture. It's a little bit teasing for me. Maybe I'm wrong and these things are exactly as the same as their reality, but it's still hard to believe for me.
Anyways, I do appreciate Lewis' effort to gather this huge amount of data and organize them in a story-formed documentary.
