I was directed to view this short film which is now running at the YouTube site. What a hoot! This is an award winning film with just so much to like. It is inventive, stylish and offers a subtle message that is not sledge-hammered home. The film goes about presenting a high level of coolness with wonderful cinematography, editing and soundtrack. In addition, there are two standout aspects to this film. First is the directing, atmospheric and commanding. Second is the leading man. What a character, what a performance, every bit the tortured Pistolero. Avelino "El Rico" Lescot thoughtfully negotiates the minefield between brutality and calm reflection. His beautifully intonated voice resonates through a narration brimming with heart and soul. His scenes with the Shaman are the standouts for me. This is a wonderful film and offers more with repeated viewings. Ten out of ten.
