Great movie! The scenery and people are as real as it can get in Latin America.

I was just wondering what the song used in the end of the Sin Nombre Trailer is called. Does anyone know that?

Watched this movie for the first time last night and absolutely loved it! Watched it three times. One of the best foreign films I've ever had the pleasure of watching and I'm so glad I decided to pick it up!

This is hands down one of the best movies I have ever seen. Edgar Flores is probably one of the most talented and exciting actors that I have seen on screen in the last 20 years. I hope Hollywood takes notice and doesn't overlook him for other way less talented white actors because he is Latino! Also worth mentioning is the performances by all of the cast who were absolutely believable in their roles.

Why is there no DVD of this movie? When will there be one? If it's gotten such great reviews--which it deserves--can't someone try to make some money off the movie and make it available to so many who'd like to see it?

this is one of the best movies i have seen, it reminds me somewhat of slumdog millionaire, the way it is directed. very authentic, i have lots of latin friends, and ive told them about this movie, and they said its exactly how it happens. this is one of those movies that kind of hits you; you have to think about it when youre watching it-like, oh my god, i cant believe this happensin real life. the acting was good, (especially sayra) shes a great actress. great picture, and overall a good movie about friends, family, violence, love, and a well crafted story about latinamerica, and the problems latinos deal with just to get to america.

i liked this movie cuz those are the homies MS13

this movie should be getting every bit as much buzz as slumdog millionaire... i'd say a solid 4.5 stars. what a fantastic story about worlds which i've never seen on screen. and the cinematography! just dazzling all around. the plot had a couple of minor weak moments, but the story overall was very believable, well-crafted, and indeed probably is a drama which is played out every day outside the reach of mainstream american view. anyway, go see it, and tell your friends... this is the real deal!

I just saw this film last night at SXSW and it was absolutely incredible. Cary Fukunaga talked to all of us in the audience after the show and it was so awesome to hear how he actually rode on the train that the film is centered on, how he went to prisons and sat with gang members from MS and how he interview 500 girls from Mexico to find the perfect character to play Sayra. I think he did an excellent job of not demonizing drug cartels or gangs but at the same time not glorifying them. I really really enjoyed watching Edgar Flores, he just captures the essence, in my mind, of what an MS "hommie" is like. I loved this film. I highly highly recommend everyone go see it when it hits theaters around mid-april. The film's opening seen is creative and draws you from the get-go, the music makes you want to dance, the film is full of little glimpses of altruistic humanity and it just has an overall authentic appeal.

I was lucky enough to see this movie premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. As someone who studies Latin American and enjoys foreign films, I would have to say this is the best movie I have ever seen. The story line is unique and the characters are believable. I would encourage any and all to see this film.
