High budget movies in Colombia
16 November 2005 | by ocastelblancoSee all my reviews

With "Rosario Tijeras", "Perder es cuestión de método" is one of the most expensive movies in Colombia's history. And one of the worst.

I can't believe it: you have at least 3 million dollars, a great team, great actors, a huge publicity machine, more than 25 years of cinematographic career, and you made this "movie"...

I'm Colombian (proud of), but I can't lie: there is at least thousand better movies in Colombia. And when I see movies of Majid Majidi or Takashi Miike or Jim Jarmush or hundred of great low budget directors I just feel envy: Why in Colombia we can't make high quality movies? I hope I can be alive to see the first great Colombian movie.
