Bizarro Wonderful Ride
30 July 2010 | by (US) – See all my reviews

This non-traditional animated movie is a ride of fun and weird, wrapped into comedy dipped into mystery but more than that is a tale of the subconscious of the subcultures that live in North America. One should take its time watching this movie and enjoying every little clin d'oeil made to classical movies as well as all the pop culture references often forgotten by our collective memory. This is a triumph for independent animated movies, it is very clear that the writers and animators decided not to give in to the culture of making money copying ideas out there that were also made with the only spirit of profit. Hopefully Victor La Cruz will become the new underground Rey of old school salsa motivated stories. Great movie, Great plot and a weird feeling all around, in a good way!
