Thankfully, filmmaker Moratto remains intensely personal about these darkly political themes, keeping cameras tight on Socrates' face to draw out his inner feelings.

...but as an expression of undying love against all odds, it succeeds where many others have failed.

[T]he blistering sincerity in "Socrates" is not fabricated but channeled from its authentic source. Sugarcoating was not allowed.

[Moratto] imbues this unhappy slice of slum life with an energy and compassion that transcends mere miserabilism.
