5.0 out of 5 stars A modern classic -- get it right with your family first., October 10, 2010
This review is from: Spoken Word (DVD)
Having received a thumbs up from Roger Ebert and a NY Times Critic's pick of the week, SPOKEN WORD, will make you want to go home this Thanksgiving and speak to your family. Director, Victor Nunez, proves again he can elicit Oscar worthy performances. Ruben Blades's performance as Senior deserves such kudos. This bitter sweet drama speaks volumes of truth about the power of communication from the heart -- also know as poetry.

Really enjoyed the movie. The story is timeless and crosses all cultures. It is the story of a prodical son. The New Mexico setting is beautiful and especially appeals to me. I recommend the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worthy of an academy award, November 7, 2010

This review is from: Spoken Word (DVD)
This film is absolutely beautiful! It is poetry itself - from the unforgettable photography, the lighting, the depth of feeling, the sparse dialogue and understated
emotion, to the universal chords of sadness, the fleeting nature of life, the almost unspeakable love we have for those who slip out of our lives without ever knowing how much we cared. Yet this film does not depress the spirit; it renews it.
We come away greatly enriched, uplifted, filled with gratitude for the days we have left to reach out to those we love.

Great acting, beautiful locations, good story, what's not to like? Living in the area where the story is set, I found the portrayal of local culture realistic and accurate for the most part.

5.0 out of 5 stars Victor Nunez Makes Incredible & Real Films, August 14, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Spoken Word (DVD)
Another great character piece from Victor Nunez. Not as good as Ulees Gold or Coastlines but the same story theme which seems to be a trademark in his films of a major character that returns "home" to try and build a new life but is in reality escaping from it. Just like those films, in this story everything comes full circle and ends up the way it's supposed to be, our main characters the better off for it thru the learning experience. Highly recommend, the acting as usual is great.
