      Carlos Aguilar Los Angeles Times Teeming with neo-noirish sensibilities and sleek craftsmanship, "Boi..." aims to examine an individual with unfulfilled artistic aspirations wrapped in a cryptic thriller; however, its stylish features overpower its many attempts at philosophical depth. Jul 26, 2019 Full Review Helen T. Verongos New York Times The tantalizing clues, occasional laughs and lapses in reality are not enough to hold this film together. Jul 26, 2019 Full Review Eddie Strait The Daily Dot The movie wants to be a ponderous journey about self-discovery, but it's actually a movie that philosophically stalls out and goes on too many fruitless detours. Rated: 2/5 Jul 26, 2019 Full Review Víctor López G. Espinof A film that seems excessively dilated. [Full Review in Spanish] Rated: 3/5 Apr 3, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      isla s This is a slightly strange sort of a film, in that I didn't feel there was a strong plot present, it kept the viewer in the dark about various things really but it did seem a bit intriguing - I'm not sure I could quite explain it properly. It has an arty feel in terms of some of the camerawork used in between scenes, with electronic type music played and jerky camerwork showing different parts of the city its set in (Barcelona), indicating where the driver has been and what goes on nearby. Its a watchable film and I thought the two Chinese men Boi was driving were almost intriguing in an engrossing sort of a way but I do wish the plot pace was a bit faster, as it felt a bit directionless to me, certainly by mid way through. I liked the drivers dog too but thats just a random comment I suppose. There wasn't enough to the story to keep me feeling especially engrossed, let alone 'glued to the screen' or anything near that but it was still reasonably watchable. I just didn't feel a strong (emotional) connection to the main character, Boi. Perhaps I should have but I didn't really. Also, I felt the first half of the film seemed quite dream-like - there's definitely an artificial sense to it, with the electronic type music and everything. Its ok but not great and I'd query why its been given the category 'thriller' on IMDB as I didn't feel it was particularly thrilling, certainly in the first half of the film - it does have more of a dark and perhaps even sinister feel later on but that does take a while to come. I'd say its more of a slow-ish drama. I can't recommend this title, no.
