The Thin Yellow Line
Directed by: Celso R. Garcia, 2015, Mexico, 95 minutes, Not Rated.
Five financially strapped men are hired to paint the center stripe alone 120 miles of Mexican state highway in The Thin Yellow Line, a very appealing dramedy from writer Celso Garcia in his directorial debut. This wonderfully photographed and skillfully acted tale emphasizes the underlying theme of economic crisis, making this film more poignant. After its world premiere at the Guadalajara Film Festival, The Thin Yellow Line won the audience award- and it went on to receive many nominations and awards from the international film groups and festivals, including 14 Ariel nominations (Mexico's Oscars). In Spanish, with closed captions in English.
"The ensemble of veteran Mexican thesps and newcomer Hollander evince credible chemistry, while the tip-top tech credits, led by Emiliano Villanueva’s gorgeous wide screen lensing, make the film a palpable pleasure to watch." - Alissa Simon, Variety - Full Review: https://variety.com/2015/film/reviews/film-review-the-thin-yellow-line-1201587037/
