      Nick Schager Slant Magazine Its refusal to offset its solemnity with any measure of lightheartedness eventually leads it to emulate the monotony of Ruben's existence a little too precisely. Rated: 2.5/4 May 4, 2007 Full Review Steve Erickson Gay City News While it may not add up to a major film, [director Rodgrigo] Moreno has a rare, confident command of his medium. Mar 9, 2018 Full Review Enrique Buchichio Uruguay Total Un relato tenso y preciso sobre la rutina de un personaje impenetrable e impredecible. Gran trabajo de Julio Chávez. Rated: 4/5 Aug 6, 2007 Full Review Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald The Custodian makes excellent use of cinematography, color and camera movement to convey the gradual restlessness brewing within Ruben. Rated: 2.5/4 Mar 8, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Imagino que el guionista-director tiene Seul Contra Tous dentro sus favoritas. Desafortunadamente esta no cuenta con la misma contextualización, desarrollo o humor. Poner un final violento a esto cuento sin trama da mero melodrama. Tomas parecen hechas solamente para no ser normal â" dejar todo fuera del carro desenfocado por concentrar en un rosario colgado del retrovisor, o alinear un poste entre el actor y la cámara para esconderle mientras fuma â" y entonces lucen simplemente pretenciosos. Lo mejor es el desempeño de Julio Chávez, quien transmite un rencor bullendo detrás de una fachada de responsabilidad. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member La historia del hombre que siempre está en segundo plano. Es muy interesante cómo los planos y la profundidad de campo sugieren cómo el custodio aparece o desaparece para los demás. Buenas actuaciones. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Old ideas brought to screen with skill and taste. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Un bodrio.... Sin música, escenas interminables..... Podrían haber hecho un corto y tal vez era buena. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Otra gran actuación de Chavez. Gran construcción de personaje y narración. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member SLIFF (http://www.cinemastlouis.org/fest) film showing Ruben who is a bodyguard for a high-profile politician. The audience sees everything from his point of view, his perspective of waiting to follow and protect a man who not only has no respect for him but no care and often uses Ruben for his own amusement. Every aspect of his life is a series of mundane routines and he only watches but never speaks. When a man has no identity what will he do to get it back?
