1.5 of 4

“..you can't make a winning movie that skewers the blood sport of U.S. politics armed with a rubber-tipped blade..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]
2 of 5

“..the movie is at its best when it eviscerates the amoral mentality of political manipulators. But everything falls apart when they aim higher, with a needlessly complex structure, sermonizing speeches and last-minute awakenings of conscience..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
2 of 5

“..often doesn't know what type of film it wants to be. Attempting to braid together political sincerity, political satire, and a human element of guilt, the feature advances unevenly, stuck trying to make sense of its erratic tone..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :
