Village Voice
Mildly engrossing, building to a final-act clash between First and Third worlds that is riveting and highly uncomfortable to watch. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
Their film is a rarity in that Rios emerges as a vibrant, reflective woman, an individual who refuses to be defined by her transsexuality. Full Review
Leslie Felperin
Variety
Likeable if rambling first feature by Icelandic helmer Olaf de Fleur Johannesson ("Africa United") evinces the helmer's background in documaking, and reps a kind of quasi-doc itself with real-life trannies riffing on their own personas. Full Review
Maitland McDonagh
TV Guide
Rios is the glue that holds Johannesson's neither-fish-nor-fowl film together. Full Review
Neil Genzlinger
The New York Times
It's like being trapped in a roomful of teenage girls for 80 minutes. Full Review
