Paz de la Huerta,
It is hard to review a picture which has been made from dedication towards picturing the reality of the Latino-American population. This movie plays the border where Spanish and American culture meet, the chaos erupts, the feelings are brushing American clichés. NO, it is not a good movie, but an honest attempt at it.. no it is not amateurism, but let us say pre-professional. The scenario is.. not very good. The lines and the characters are often paper like, tinsel, and yet I kept wondering how this tale would evolve. The collision of two cultures and the fact that it really is partially a Spanish- speaking movie makes it interesting. Carradine.. good? No, not really, but still a moving tribute from a director at the beginning. An apprentice-film really. If it is worthwhile to stick to his cause future can only tell. Not a superb beginning, but one though. The female characters are sometimes worthwhile, the bulk of the cast is too camera-consciousness, and forgot the story once in a while to follow their idea about the narrative.
