I was a little worried about this one, but it turned out to be pretty good. The two main stars are unknown actors, but did a great job. The shots of Arizona and Mexico are good, the director does a fine job placing the story. This film was refreshing because it did not have to revert overt use of violence and sex to keep you interested... the story pulls you along on it's own. Not a typical Hollywood ending either.
Worth the postage to do a swap.
Twists and turns and beautiful imagery make this indie film

"Set against the beauty of the Sonoran desert, the film depicts two men who hatch a plan that they think will both help immigrants and make them rich. The film touches on the complexity of immigration but balances it out with the timeless story of men seeking happiness and satisfaction.
Twists and turns in the story were fun and left me guessing until the end. The cinematography was very beautiful and uniquely captured the stark desert landscape, giving the film a look that was much more polished than most indie films I've seen. The acting was very naturalistic, a nice counterbalance to the stereotypical portrayals in many mainstream films. This a great film--highly recommended for a movie night at home!"
Coyote - excellent!

"What a well-written and thought-out story. Coyote is an independent film that doesn't look low budget. It deals with a real and timely subject (human smuggling) without being preachy. If you're looking for a film with a political statement, this isn't it. This is a story with a soul. It's funny, sincere, and tense and frenetic as the story builds."
Humane people trafficers

"An amazing story about two friends: Stevie who is in his early thirties and "retired" due to successful sale of his business venture and his buddy J., son of Mexican immigrants who works mundane job refilling vending machines. One day, their long time friend who is not American citizen but was raised in America is deported to Mexico. Bored and willing to help out their buddy, two friends find a way to smuggle him back to US (Arizona). Before long, they have a busines plan on creating a new way of trafficking Mexicans to US - at a profit.
It turns out to be an easy and successful venture, that pays well and pays in cash. Both men feel they are doing a public service by providing a more humane way of transporting people in the US. Until one day they realize tht Mexican warlord is unhappy about loosing his business to Gringos. And that is when the real trouble starts...
Great story, not so good actors and wonderful entertainment."
