Greed, revenge and death all impact one another in this taught crime drama. Nothing is what is seems in this film written and produced by Maximiliano Hernández and directed by newcomer Jhosimar Vasquez.
The filmmakers and cast were still in high school when filming and had to shoot only on weekends on-and-off for nearly a year. See more »
Impressive student filmmaking
Does a film made in high school count as a 'student film'? Oh well. I saw this on Amazon Prime and it caught my eye, and it's only an hour long so I figured I'd give it a try.
This is surprisingly pretty interesting and extremely well shot (especially for a first time film from teens). The music though is good... really good... sometimes maybe even too good for the film itself. I got serious 70s-80s vibes and black and white made for great atmosphere. Still, I'm not sure if I totally understand the plot. I feel like after the first twenty minutes or so it wasn't as engaging, but it had a solid start. I guess it's about a serial killer(?) who goes on a spree, and just stops? Not totally sure what the filmmakers were trying to say. But it was paced just fast enough to keep me engaged overall and i can't really knock it for acting, even though the acting wasn't the best (I'm sure it was just friends from school).
The serial killer movie is sort of a cliche for first filmmakers like zombie movies are. But this definitely had me thinking of some of the good examples of those movies like Angst or Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. But I'm interested in seeing what these guys do next.
