“Few films I’ve had the pleasure of seeing from this year’s DOC NYC lineup are as breathlessly enjoyable as this film. A delightful, and shockingly powerful, look at a world most people aren’t familiar with. Delightfully energetic and a must-watch for wrestling fanatics, this is a universally engaging documentary that’s as high speed as it is genuinely moving and intellectually engaging.” -Criterion Cast 

“Lucha Mexico competently captures the nostalgic spectacle of this Mexican sport with vibrant glee. It offers up an infectious energy and a behind-the-ropes look at its legendary heroes. It’s quite a party!” -Film International 

“A headlong dive into the world of masked superheroes and villains." -David Edelstein, New York Magazine 

"The film is one of the fest's [DOC NYC] most generous in terms of breadth — there are revelations about the sport, its performers, and its fans every few moments, and the screen bursts with color and wild motion.” -Village Voice 


Official Selection, 2016 DOC NYC Film Festival
