i walked out
23 July 2002 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

this movie was an ordeal. well, the first 40 minutes anyway.

in these 40 minutes, there was a total of about 15 shots. apparently that is this director's trademark: shots where nothing at all happens, that last several minutes. after awhile came interviews with relatives of people who died while trying to cross the mexican-usa border, but any interest these might have aroused was killed off immediately afterwards, with a 4-minute shot of said border.

after awhile, i decided that if i want to see nothing happen, i may as well do it outside.

why would anyone want to make a movie as deliberately slow as this? if a documentary filmmaker wants to raise awareness of a certain cause, why does she try so hard to alienate her audience?

i wouldn't go near this film without the availability of a fast-forward button.
