Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It's easy to see what drew filmmaker Aaron I. Naar to his eponymous subject in "Mateo," but it's almost impossible to share his enthusiasm. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Aug 21, 2015

Fresh: What begins as a quirky portrait of the artist as a gringo mariachi troubadour proves to be a telling study of a lost soul whose palpable passion for his music acts as a surrogate for more meaningful human contact. – Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times, Aug 20, 2015

Rotten: A hazy portrait of an odd character whose backstory offers multiple attention-getting hooks. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, Aug 17, 2015

Fresh: Incisively intimate, it's a small but stirring snapshot of a gifted, hopelessly lonely soul. – Nick Schager, Village Voice, Aug 4, 2015
