The Watchman (2017)

A very well-made drama from The Dominican Republic, which sheds a light on the prejudices the country struggles with regarding gender, race, and class.

Despite being predominantly “sad” in tone, and in spite of dealing with heavy issues, The Watchman is a very enjoyable film.

This satire is very enjoyable, despite a slow pace and some minor weaknesses in the writing.
