    I found this documentary fascinating. Its mood reminded me of Nicaragua--and not because it happens to be about a man living and working in Nicaragua; the mood captures the stark realism of life and death as they are--and not as we would have them be. This has been my experience moving through Nicaragua on my walks. While I occasionally engage with someone, most of my time is spent as a silent witness to the vibrancy and desperation of life and of the every present threat and evidence of death. Life and death seem to exist much closer to the surface there then they do in the filtered, sheltered, and sanitized culture of suburban U.S.

    That's well put. I'm not sure if that's good or bad; does it cheapen life or make it more precious?

    Welcome back, Julio!

    Very well done film. Looks like it was made by a Nicaraguan, filmed in Mexico.

    ...and because life seems to go full circle all too often...
