Just too many flaws in writing, 14 January 2010
Author: drystyx from United States

The story of a "noble honorable rustler" boggles the mind. The lead character begins by asking forgiveness for sins from a priest, and we're led to believe he has noble qualities, because he isn't a gringo. That pretty much says how the film goes.

In fact, it seems to have been written by a 4 year old, or at least someone who has never strayed outside a cubicle. The characters are all so flagrantly cliché, it would be classified as a comedy to most people.

I'm being overly generous in giving this a "3" because it isn't nearly as poor as most other short films recognized by critics, and the actors are good, with none of them portraying glamor. In fact, the heroine would be just as plain without the markings on her face.

The sole purpose of these critics who rave about garbage like this, and dismiss real art, is to bully people around with their prejudices.

I hope no one takes it seriously that an thief would be so noble. Films like this could cost naive viewers more than they can give.

Poorly written, but some decent visual scenery and good acting.
