Autopsia de un fanstasma... or the death of Mexican Films
In 1968 Mexico City hosted the Olympic Games, Gustavo Diaz Ordaz was President of Mexico, and color TV was introduced to those who could afford it. This year also marks the death of the Mexican Film. "Autopsia de un Fantasma" is a clear example of what a bad film is. Its timing is terrible, acting is virtually non existent. This would no be remarkable and certainly not atypical of what is called deceptively a "Mexican churro" (a Mexican blunder) if not for the fact that so many good comic actors took place in it. One cannot help but wonder why 10 or 20 years Mexico had produced some of the best comedy in Black and White film, with most of the same actors! Its special effects are "fair" considering some animation techniques and frame by frame photography were already available. A classic already, but a classic that marked the beginning of the end of an industry that once was considered among the best in the world. Now released for public consumption is available trough the dish network Spanish channels.
