Village Voice - Amy Nicholson
Cartel Land is interested in how idealism becomes corrupt.
The Playlist - Katie Walsh
Heineman, in placing himself in such danger, has managed to create a remarkable and distinctive film that takes on a difficult issue that cannot be so conveniently remedied or ignored.
The Hollywood Reporter - Duane Byrge
Filmmaker Heineman vaults us into a true heart of darkness.
The Dissolve - Scott Tobias
Though Cartel Land isn't interested in making fact-filled statements about the drug war, Heineman's ingenious conceit gets at the difficulty ordinary people have in doing something about it.

Cartel Land (2015)

A physician in Michoacán, Mexico leads a citizen uprising against the drug cartel that has wreaked havoc on the region for years. Across the U.S. border, a veteran heads a paramilitary group working to prevent Mexico's drug wars from entering U.S. territory.
