A Pure Example of Creativity and Knowledge of the Art to make a Quality Film
Monday is a film Directed by Alejandro Montoya Marin produced by Robert Rodriguez. This feature was made during the making of Rebel Without a Crew where filmmakers were given only $7000 to make a feature, similar to Robert Rodriguez's experience making the Film "El Mariachi."
Alejandro is no stranger to making quality film with limited resources and with "Monday" he thrives above and beyond. Monday is an entertaining Action Comedy about a likeable loser, "Jim" played by Jamie Jung. We can all relate. We wake up one morning and it's rough only in Jim's case, he looses his job, he looses girl and to add icing on the cake, he gets entangled in a cartel hit agenda. All this leading into a clever heightened adventure of having the serious case of the "Mondays."
The film is well cast with Sofia Embid playing the conflicted Sam. Kenneth McGlothin brings in a hilarious comedic Performance playing Jim's Best Friend, Paul, and of course a strong villainous performance from Anna Schatte whose actions through out the film will make you widen your eyes and say' " Holy S---"
Monday is available for purchase on iTunes. I highly recommend watching this film, not just for entertainment, but for other filmmakers to learn how Creativity, as oppose to resources, can make for a quality film.
