Pretentious, Unoriginal
1 December 2007 | by (Zamora, México) – See all my reviews

Much like Reygadas' Movies, but less masterfuly done. This Movie won in the Morelia International Film Fest 2007 in a very predictable fashion: this type of movies are exactly what film snobs like: SLOW, PRETENTIOUS... SLOW, PRETENTIOUS... bloated with images that intend to be menaningful just for the sake of it, but not really trying: For Example: the Director seems to think that if you put poor people in a shot doing nothing and staring in to the distance, during, say, five minutes, that automatically makes it art. I'm not joking, the whole movie is like that. I was present at the Q&A with the director an the guy couldn't explain his Movie, the plot, and not even those very long traveling shots following the protagonist trough the streets, the subway, the market, etc. just walking without the image showing us nothing but the guys behind, ignoring completely the rich ambiance around him (and i know is rich not because the movie shows it, but because Batalla en el Cielo, from Carlos Reygadas, the guy this sap is clearly ripping off here, really shot Mexico City's most mundane features beautifully). This shots, that make at least 50% of the body of the movie, showed absolutely nothing.

This is the worst type of cinema: what pretentious little brats from Film Schools make.
