Critic Reviews for La leyenda negra

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

In "La Leyenda Negra," a Latino-centric project with queer notes and major topical value, her fight (and that of those she represents) is communicated thunderously.

December 4, 2020 | Full Review…

There's a shaggy energy throughout that gives the movie a sense of urgency.

February 5, 2020 | Full Review…

Full of heart, but wide of the mark.

January 27, 2020 | Full Review…

Mature immigrant-themed indie has strong female lead.

December 17, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A starkly shot, black and white drama that carries a ragged sincerity...

December 4, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

La Leyenda Negra is a searing twist on the coming of age (and coming out) tale that feels like a new classic of U.S. Latino cinema.
