Chats perchés (2004)
irrelevant and utterly without focus
I really hated this.
Firstly, it was horribly shot - basically the editing and picture quality was comparable to a Handicam movie.
The narration was infuriating and the concept incredibly muddled.
In the end it was a documentary about almost nothing.
Was it about war, urban subcultural memes or both? It ended up not really being about neither.
Thank god it was only one hour long.
The extras on the DVD are even more depressingly pointless.
I don't understand how this even made it to DVD.
Barrio Cuba (2005)
comparable in quality to the worst Latin soap operas
This is without doubt one of the worst films I have ever seen.
I was really looking forward to it after going to Cuba for the first time this summer and seeing the tough life people live there and being a fan of Humberto Solás' early work.
The acting is truly dreadful and the script is worse - with all the important plot information delivered to the viewer through hackneyed dialogue in the least discreet way possible. The music is incredibly abrasive, which given Cuba's bountiful supply of great musicians is inexcusable.
Very disappointing. It's hard to believe this is from the same director as Lucía.
