The movie "Angel de Fuego" was a great story. I rated it a 6 on the rating chart because of lack of character development and horrible direction. The characters lacked information that needed to tell the story more clearly. Rather than having ten seconds of pure nothing, they should have had more dialoge. There were scenes where an actor/actress would walk out of frame and the film kept rolling. As a viewer, I found this VERY distracting and annoying. Maybe its just me, but, I think having less 'empty' space, they should have had added more to the script.
The story was excellent, I don't understand how it could be the "Best Picture of 1993 for the New York International Latino Film Festival." It seemed like a low budget film, so I understand the lack of equiptment that was available, but I DO believe every movie's pre-production should have surpassed the production part of the film. More planning of framing, blocking, storyboarding, editing, lighting, and sound design would have made this movie a bit better and gotten the "Best Picture" award fairly.
Overall, it was a 'a-okay' film.
