Alonso Ruizpalacios’ ‘Gueros’ Tops Los Cabos Festival

15 November 2014 10:39 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico – Appropriately for a festival that in part sets out to showcase new Mexican talent to the U.S. and Canada, Alonso Ruizpalacios’ feature debut “Güeros” – sold by Mundial, a joint venture of Im Global and Canana – won the top award at the 3rd Los Cabos Festival.

Presented by Diego Luna, the award was made at the Saturday’s closing gala ceremony where “Captive” star Rosario Dawson presented a tribute to Canadian auteur Atom Egoyan, calling him “evisceratingly smart.”

Ceremony segued into a gala screening of Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood,” with Ellar Coltrane and Lorelei Linklater in attendance.

Gustavo Gamou’s “El regreso del muerto,” about the twilight years of a former hitman, received a special mention, as did Carlos Marques-Marcet’s “10,000 Km.”

Coming hard on the heels of a New Auteurs Audience Award at the AFI Fest Thursday, and following Berlin best first feature and San Sebastian’s Horizontes Latinos nods, »

Prizes were announced Wednesday night at the opening gala of the 3rd Los Cabos Festival, unspooling in Cabo San Lucas through Sunday, and graced by Reese Witherspoon, who presented opening night pic “Wild.”

‘Carmin Tropical’ Surprises With Top Prize at Morelia Film Fest

25 October 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mexico City – “Carmin Tropical,” Rigoberto Perezcano’s exploration into gender, family and violence, took the top prize for best fiction feature at the Morelia International Film Festival on Friday evening. It beat out Alonso Ruizpalacio’s “Güeros,” which nearly made a sweep, winning the press prize, public prize, and best first or second work, as well as picking up actor kudos for the three leads in the film.

The second feature from Perezcano, whose first film “Northless” also bowed at Morelia, focuses on the community of traditional transgendered women, known as muxes, on the southern Isthmus of Tehuantepec, turning on a trans woman’s homecoming to seek the killer of her friend, another muxe. “Carmin” was co-produced by Cinepantera and Tiburon Films.

The win is impressive, coming against the much-lauded “Güeros,” which took best first feature in Berlin, as well as kudos in Tribeca and San Sebastian. The Tenoch Huerta starrer, »

Lima 2014 Review: Gueros Takes You On A Ride Through Mexico City

10 August 2014 11:01 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Gueros, the debut film from director Alonso Ruiz Palacios, begins on a high note: a stylish, energetic opening detailing the inevitable collision between a woman carrying her baby on a stroller and a badly timed water balloon. This little act of delinquency is what lands young Tomás (Sebastián Aguirre) in Mexico City, under the care of older brother Sombra (Tenoch Huerta), who lounges around his apartment waiting for a students' strike to finish so he can complete his thesis.Joined by Sombra's equally slacker pal Santos (Leonardo Ortizgris), and later a radio DJ/love interest named Ana (Ilse Salas), the brothers take off in search of a reclusive, near-mythical former rock star named Epigmenio Cruz, a favorite of their late father, whose biggest claim to fame is...

Five Questions with Güeros Director Alonso Ruizpalacios

1 May 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Much like the counter-movement it depicts, Alonso Ruizpalacios’ Güeros is built upon a series of elements that slyly double back on one another. Smartphones in 1999, remnants of behind the scenes footage to break the third wall, a road trip through town, and handheld camerawork to counteract otherwise formal rigor all comprise this tale of three young men in the midst of a Mexico City National University upheaval. Troublemaker Tomás (Sebastián Aguirre) is sent South by his mother to live with his dissident, often lackadaisical brother Sombra (Tenoch Huerta) and his best friend Santos (Leonardo Ortizgris). Wasting the days away in their concrete compound, the three become […] »

Berlin Film Festival Review: ‘Gueros’

8 February 2014 8:27 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“To be young and not a revolutionary is a contradiction,” reads a protest banner in “Gueros,” a feisty Mexican indie in which two brothers — one dark-skinned, the other pale — idly fritter away a few days while those around them stage a massive student demonstration. Such politics exist on the periphery of Alonso Ruizpalacios’ playful yet realistically grounded debut, which poses as a road trip (or, for the more generously inclined, a lackadaisical “chase movie”) in which the siblings conceivably discover their place in society while searching for an elusive folk singer. Pic faces modest returns, but foretells a promising career.

By contrast with a more arthouse-friendly strain of Mexican cinema — whose helmers “grab a bunch of beggars and shoot in black-and-white,” as one character here self-reflexively notes — this microbudget offering focuses on relatively privileged middle-class types (which it also shoots in black-and-white, and in the Academy ratio).
