Amazing!
8 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Holy Moly! I just finished watching La Torcedura, based on a friends recommendation and it was completely worthwhile. This is exactly what Hollywood needs; a fresh thinking director with an amazing eye and the ability to tell a real story. Wilmer Valderrama's performance was very believable and helped bring me into the movie. The Special Effects were well thought out and not overused, unlike a lot of big budget films where the director/producers seem to, but not always, use them in place of story - very sad. Additionally, the overall use of the cooler blue tones added to the urgency and intensity of the piece. Great writing, directing and editing. His short totally held me, so please, someone give this guy a real budget and let him go make a feature.
