Did You Know?

Trivia

First film in Mexico and Latinamerica that was shot with the new Red Camera sensor (the Red Epic DRAGON) although, since this camera would give great quality and sharpness to the image but the film is a period piece and takes place in the 60's, Director of Photography Isi Sarfati decided to use a lot of filters to make the image look like something out of a 60's film, as director Isaac Ezban had envisioned.

Fine, not great. Good ambiance.
9 September 2018 | by amc672See all my reviews

An interesting photography. Irregular performances (the kid was not my favorite). Good atmosphere generating suspense. Music that more than to homage Bernard Herrman's scores, sounds like plagiarism (also final credits look like quite similar to North by Northwest and Psycho titles, beyond a homage). The script is interesting but I do not feel an strong closure and even could be considered for some a 68's mexican student massacre trivialization.

just to watch one occasion without demanding too much. And if you are a Hitchcock's fan, like I am, you probably could feel uncomfortable for excessive similarities in technical aspects.

Anyway, enough to feel curious and seeing another Ezban's work.

6/10
