Why so vicious?
15 April 2009 | by albiz46See all my reviews

This film is the first to cinematically ever deal with the real "Puerto Rico question"...and is a decent film, albeit not perfect, and overcame monstrous obstacles and various attempts at sabotage in order to get completed. The cast did their best, and the writing and directing is efficient albeit the narrative is quite unconventional. In reading two recently posted comments...I am trying to assess what would motivate a user to write about something that they may have seen over three years ago (and only for thirty minutes) would NOW comment in such a vicious and destructive manner. Re: the other comment, IBIA has not even screened yet in Puerto Rico. Man...did these two really see the movie? The movie was well received in India and in the festival circuit.
