Papi Chulo (2018)
Critic Reviews for Papi Chulo
It's the synergistic performances of Matt Bomer, playing raw and broken, and Alejandro Patino, conveying decency and nonjudgmental compassion behind his deadpan raised eyebrows, that makes the movie click.
Apart from fantastic performances from its cast, especially Bomer and Patiño, Papi Chulo's biggest strength is the subtlety and grace with which it deals with the wide cross-section of issues it touches upon.
Just like Sean, Papi Chulo's heart is clearly in the right place but, just like Sean, it has very little regard for Ernesto's feelings and needs.
Despite straightening into a character study of a rich, famous white guy dealing with loneliness and a fractured state of mind, Papi Chulo is involving largely because of Bomer's lived-in performance.
Despite telling a story of heartbreak, there's never a doubt about the love Butler has for everyone and every place on screen and it can't help but be infectious, starting with the removal of a tree that allows for so much more to bloom in its place.
