I was able to attend Pajarracos at its Premier and found it a funny, tongue-in-cheek entertainment experience which, by the way, does not take itself too seriously. Hence, I believe, its power and allure. The script, enriched through a Sundance scriptwriting seminar, creates a world of its own influenced (or paying homage to) contemporary movies such as Snatch and oldie Pop-culture home video auteurs the Almada Brothers. In between is every Mexican icon, old and new- luchadores, ficheras, the Saint Patron of drug smugglers, and so on. Indeed, the film was not meant to change the world or alleviate mankind's sufferings. It was conceived, on the other hand, to take on serious issues through an outright tragicomedy approach-- a very Mexican way of dealing with nasty issues. Last but not least I also found it amusing to see old-time actors having the chance to grace the big screen once again.
