      Cowboy del Amor

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Though at times funny and engaging, Cowboy del Amor fails to explore the imperialist implications of offering young Mexican women to white American men.

      Audience Member A fascinating premise that unfortunately doesn't deliver as well as I had hoped. Ivan definitely is an interesting character, but his views on women and how he deals with women in his own personal relationships is decidedly ..... umm antiquated. Ivan's heart is in the right place and trying to help two people come together is a worthy goal. But the doc isn't presented as well as it could be. Worth a watch but not worth buying or watching a second time. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Not holding my attention. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member it's an interesting story that you'd find in the back pages of a local newspaper. There's something kinda charming about Mr Thompson as he plays the Cowboy Cupid.

      Marrit Ingman Austin Chronicle Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 1, 2006 Full Review Stephen Becker Dallas Morning News This charming documentary follows Ivan Thompson, the self-proclaimed 'Cowboy Cupid,' as he finds Mexican brides for American men who feel they've exhausted their options on their side of the border. Rated: A- Mar 2, 2006 Full Review Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle Thompson is no McNamara, and Cowboy del Amor is no Fog of War. But there is something hypnotic about this self-styled romance expert expounding on the fog of love. Rated: 3/4 Feb 24, 2006 Full Review Prairie Miller WBAI Web Radio One would anticipate the crafting of a sinister satire here, but the film is dead serious and overidentified with Cowboy Cupid's boastful, smirking posturing. A camera in the hand of a director should be more than just a piece of surveillance equipment. Sep 29, 2007 Full Review Eric Monder Film Journal International The laid-back, bittersweet peek into this flourishing but little-known world will gratify and intrigue. Mar 1, 2007 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Taking on a topic-a matchmaker of white American males with Mexican women-that both high-minded liberals and flag-toting conservatives would find offensive, Ohayon refuses to pass judgment on her subjects, instead quietly stands back and lets them talk.
