Brilliant
I caught this film last night on KWHY-22 in Los Angeles. I found it fascinating. It had a very innovative and creative cinematic style. I really liked how the film swung back and forth from the cafe to the junk yard to the junkie. It had a happy ending. The automobile selection was great. The pursuers of Juan reminded me of characters from the Brother from Another Planet. This film reminded me of something which we might see from David Lynch or John Sayles. Quite unusual. KWHY consistently comes up with little cinematic gems originating in Mexico. The Mexican film industry has been prolific for years and has a long tradition of outstanding actors. KWHY supports this on a daily basis. I am quite fond of the 70s-90s gangster genre which will usually involve actors like David Reynoso, Mario Almada or Hugo Stiglitz. These are B films in the finest tradition of B cinema. What comes out of Hollywood nowadays is so totally overblown and uninteresting, that this uniquely Mexican genre is now able to step up and offer a refreshing alternative, even if your Spanish is limited. Those who are students of cinema and live in LA are fortunate to have a channel like KWHY which in addition to the "churro" genre will also have outstanding Mexican films from the 40's, 50's and 60's.
