Storyline

Based on real life events & captured in a hyperrealistic style, Flesh & Blood unapologetically straddles the line between narrative & documentary to lay bare the beautifully flawed nature of life. Reality belies fiction & vice versa as the characters in the film are played by their real-life counterparts. The central character, Mark, is played by director/actor Mark Webber & draws from elements of Mark's actual life. The character of Guillermo (Mark's younger brother who struggles with Asperger's Syndrome in real life) is played by Mark Webber's actual younger brother Guillermo & takes us on a true-to-life journey through the eyes of a misunderstood & bullied teenager. The character of Big G is played by Guillermo's actual father who in reality & in the film is coming to grips with drug addiction, the abandonment of his son & imminent death from "Hep C".

Lifestyles of the impoverished and ignorant.
29 January 2021 | by PIST-OFFSee all my reviews

One of the reasons I never much liked horror movies or slasher movies is that the contrivances of the plot require that the characters be really stupid and make wrong decisions at every turn. Well the same can be said for this slow movie quasi docu drama. The characters are too trapped in their own ignorance to make any meaningful move. We've all met these people in real life. the experience of being around them while they pile damage upon damage upon themselves and those near them until there is nothing but human wreckage can be profoundly frustrating. This movie is a slow 90 minutes of that. No humor or joie de vie exists in this movie which means that it isn't even honest about it's subject. Just melancholy ignorance. Well "acted" I suppose but ultimately just a frustrating bore.
