Lily Zarrasky: And now I've realized the world is even more... Dumb. Isn't that funny? Evolution is really fucking us. The human being, the human being... Fuck! We all are animals, right? Maybe I say this because I had a child's vision before. But I see people wasting time with formalities and "anti-formalities"... And they are afraid of doing what they really want. You go to the subway and see all those people. And they really make me sad. So... What am I going to do with my life? I don't know. Anything as ...

Impressive
6 March 2004 | by (Miami) – See all my reviews

I still can't get over the fact that this film's budget was $2000. The director- cinematographer- editor, (Cuban-born Miguel Coyula) has put together a very intense film that doesn't reveal its minimal resources. Here we have a very dark story with very twisted characters. I felt that there was a couple of loose ends in the subplots, but that's just a personal observation. The film grabs you to the seat for it's hour and a half min, and stays with you afterward. That's, i think , the best way to describe it without spoiling it. I doubt that Red Cockroaches will reach broad audience because of its perhaps overly artistic nature, but those looking into something really unusual will appreciate it.
