Papi Chulo (2018) Reviews

  • Indie Gem


    I was lucky enough to see the European premiere of 'Papi Chulo' at the London Film Festival. And what a wonderful movie this is. On its face, the tale of a lonely weatherman and the connection he develops with the Latino day laborer he hires to do some painting, on a deeper level it is a moving exploration of loneliness. Do not let that put you off, however. This is not a depressing movie; it has moments of true, laugh-out-loud comedy as well as moments of real tragedy that lead finally to a warm, hopeful ending. All the performances work. Alejandro Patiño is very good as a man of basic decency and honesty who finds himself in some awkward situations and reacts in the best way he knows how - or, frankly, anyone could be expected to. But the movie hangs on Bomer's performance - he is in almost every scene - and he delivers and then some. Everything about the performance hits the mark, from heartwarming comedy to heartbreaking tragedy, Bomer clearly went all in, but avoids histrionics to bring to the screen a visceral, moving, touching portrayal of a man struggling to deal with grief and immense loss the best way he knows how. In a more mainstream movie (and a fairer world), I honestly believe this performance would garner awards attention. John Butler's writing and direction are all thoroughly accomplished, exploring big themes via his main character's contained, personal story. The screenplay is beautifully paced, never rushing but never slow. There are highlight scenes both at the comedic end of the spectrum (the 'singing Madonna in the taxi' scene manages to be both moving and funny) and at the tragic (some of Bomer's finest moments in the film). There is nothing showy about this movie - there's no big budget or effects - but it does what it sets out to do perfectly. I very rarely give a 10 to anything, but I give one to this because I honestly can't think of anything that could be improved within the scope of this film's ambitions. It is a thoroughly satisfying movie-going experience: it provides laughter and tears, gives food for thought on multiple fronts, and finds its way to a satisfying, but not trite, ending. Congratulations to all involved. I hope this movie finds distribution deals that allow as many people as possible to see it in theatres, and fingers crossed for streaming distribution that will allow the millions of people to see it that it deserves.

  • Adorable film


    This film is beautiful in so many ways. Well acted and shows what happens when you lose a partner and how crazy you can become. When he meets and has a friendship with the migrant worker it's so real. He doesn't want a Grindr hook up he wants a hug. A human that cares for him. What I like about this film also is it's not all about being gay. The gay thing is just a trait. The friendship relationship with the married man is sweet and believable. Some good laughs . A great film. Original. Wonderful. Couldn't better it. Hence a ten.

  • Emotionally true, always talk!


    An amazingly emotional, yet funny performance from the cast and an exceptionally written script!

  • Deepgoing, outstanding performances, worldclass directing


    It's impossible to describe all the feelings you get watching this movie! Love, pain, laughing, crying, wondering and so much more. Matt Bomer and Alejandro Patino play such an uneven pair, it does not seem to be possible anymore. And yet there is a mutual attraction, complementary to the life of each other. John Butler shows in sensitive scenes and pictures a sensitive topic - you can not show it more beautiful!

  • Beautiful film about loneliness and acceptance


    This movie is wonderful. I saw it in London, Dublin, Glasgow and then London again, that's how good it is. I've been a fan of John Butler's work for some time, but this film is his best yet. Matt Bomer is magnificent as Sean, a man who is broken by grief and loneliness, and Alejandro Patino is perfectly cast as the migrant worker who is the catalyst for Sean's recovery. The film has plenty of laugh out loud moments and also scenes that will break your heart. All the cast are wonderful and Alejandro and particularly Matt give performances that are sublime. Go see it, you'll be glad you did!
