Beyond the Sea


Time Out says

Although it shares its title with Kevin Spacey's flashy Bobby Darin biopic, this harrowing doc won't send you from the theater whistling a happy tune. Ten refugees recall their torturous escape from Cuba during 1980's chaotic Mariel boat lift. Tricked up with some tacky clips of Al Pacino in Scarface, the film is most powerful when it simply allows its subjects to talk about the oppressive regime they fled: One woman remembers being harassed just for wearing bell-bottoms.
