8 Murders a Day Movie Reviews
User reviews on 8 Murders a Day
This is a doc**entary about a town in Mexico, called Juarez and drug wars that are happening there, the film was directed by Charlie Minn and stars Daniel Borunda, Charles Bowden and Howard Campbell. I really liked this doc**entary and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film is really sad, I can not believe that it is happening so close to the United States and nobody seems to know about horrible situation that the city of Juarez is in. I was really moved by this film and I hope that people will go and see it and inform others.
This is a doc**entary directed by Charlie Minn about the city of Juarez in Mexico and the astounding amount of murders that are happening there. I was very shocked by this film and the numbers of murders happening just across the border are absolutely insane. The murders are happening because of drug cartels, government corruption and NAFTA. The doc**entary is shocking but I wish it conveyed the message a little bit better. Reporter Charles Bowden does a good job and adds some of heat to the doc**entary. I also missed explanations in this doc**entary, they point out the violence and the rate of murders but they do not explain exactly why it is happening. i still think it is necessary to see this doc**entary and inform yourself and others about what is happening across the border.
What a beautiful and wonderfully sad movie. I loved how the director contrasted the beauty of nature and the nature of human cruelty throughout the whole film, it was truly masterfully done. The film is very sad because it shows how we can be surrounded by people and be in their lives but not have any relationship with them. In Mija’s case, she has people in her life but she has absolutely no relationship with them, all she has in the end is her disease. Korean legend Yun Jung-hee plays the role of Mija wonderfully, she is an amazing actress and i think she should be awarded for this role. Even though the film has a lot of sad stories it is not tragic. After you see this film one thing you take away is that everything and everybody dies, it is natural and it has been happening since the life itself began..
I feel like a lot of doc**entaries have been coming out lately and all of them have been really good. This one is no different. 8 Murders a Day is as gruesome as it sounds. It is a doc**entary about the wars two drug cartels have been fighting for the most coveted drug smuggling routes into the USA that goes through El Paso, Texas. This doc**entary really illustrates the incredible violence that is perpetrated in Juarez. I really couldn’t believe I didn’t know more about what is going on over there. The main thing the movie tries to pass along is that the prohibition of drugs is the main reason these cartels have power. Legalizing drugs would take away their power because they wouldn’t have anything to sell. The movie itself is very informative and the statistics are very scary. Great movie all in all.
