A pseudo-artistic thriller
29 April 2003 | by (Mexico City, Mexico.) – See all my reviews

We all know that kind of weird movie where the creators try to make an artistic flick, mixing some sort of music with explicit images or great photography or a misunderstanding topic or plot or any strange thing. Sometimes, they do it right, and the result is a great blast of feelings in a sea of moving colors and sound. Sometimes nobody gets it and it becomes another pseudo-artistic pretentious thing, filed in some art school's shelf.

In this case, "Impulsos", is between those two ways. It has a plot, a simple one. It has real life-like characters. It has this great jazz music that matches the images and the plot. It has a great photography, and art coordination. It certainly makes you FEEL every feeling transmitted by the actors. But it seems for me that nobody knew what to do with all this. They just got an idea of what to do with this elements, but they fight against time to make it last 90 minutes.

Good actors, good direction. Great music, great photography: now get a complete story! Introduction, problem, climax and resolution... right?
