Very entertaining
7 December 2006 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I saw this film as part of the México Now festival, which i was lucky enough to have come right to my school. I wasn't planning on staying, but once I started watching Toro Negro, I stayed till the very end. The documentary follows a scruffy young man("El Negro") in a small down and out town who's trying to make a living off bullfighting. El Negro is a troubled and slightly crazy character, who has more drama going on than your average telenovela. His life and antics are both amusing and depressing. My friends and i were dying of laughter at some scenes, and it seemed that both Mexican and non-Mexican people all "got" the funniness. Like the part when he gets drunk and goes and flirts with this chubby homosexual guy....LMAO. there were also many intense moments from the tragic side of El Negro's life were the whole theatre just sat there quiet, hypnotised by the drama. I also liked the way the filmmakers sort of stayed out of the picture, rather than try and bait him or make fun of him like a lot of this sorta 'naco-kitsch'/ 'haha he's so uneducated' stuff i've seen about. good film.
