Time Out says
Walker clearly – and justly – admires Muniz but doesn’t make much of an effort to persuade us of the same. As such, it’s hard not to worry about these workers being given a glimpse of a new life and feel that the real story begins when the camera’s off. That said, she focuses as much on the lives of pickers as on Muniz, even if, with so many elements to her tale, it only ever feels like she’s skating on the surface of a more meaty and questioning film rather than a mildly troubling but mostly uplifting one.
