It is time, however, for the Spain-born camera guy to direct his first feature, and his directorial effort just resulted to be a better movie than most of the ones he has participated in only capturing the moments.If there is a continent that has filled its immigration-based quota of films, it is Latin America, especially during the last 30 years. Countries like Argentina, Mexico, Colombia and now Guatemala have provided a decent amount of real life testaments depicting the harrowing realities of crossing a national border. Probably the one standing out today is still Gregory Nava's El Norte (1983), a film shot in Mexico that even received a Criterion Collection release. However, this one is not far behind.The three films mentioned in the opening could give you an idea of the amount of realism that the film carries. That expectation is exactly fulfilled as imagined, and then more... The whole realistic minimalism is so absorbing that any tragic outcome is felt as something more naturally portrayed that melodramatically manipulated. There is no need to be blatantly cruel towards the characters with extreme graphic representations, because the whole struggle seems irresistibly human, and any loss is perceived as unavoidable outcomes impossible not to be moved by.The greatest sign of respect that Diego shows is loyalty towards the real-life situations, leaving them untouched by clichs or melodrama. Thanks to this, the film feels like an authentic, empathetic wake-up call not only for the members of the respective societies referenced here, but also to the authorities in charge of executing their own justice as if they were perfect jurors of the human condition. The movie moves from one event to the next, becoming a full collage of a decent percentage of the difficulties faced by those crossing an entire country in order to fulfill their idealized mental version of the American dream, which is itself a paradox.Perhaps the film transforming itself into a road movie with light humor to provide relief feels out of context. Also, the protagonists manage to escape from a number of situations big enough to believe as an obvious vehicle to keep the engine running. However, in the end, we realize the meaning of this "golden cage". This irony is perhaps one of the most honest, but equally disturbing conclusions to digest in Latin American cinema of the last two decades.Acclaimed at Cannes and other festivals in 2013, this film deserves attention, respect, and above all, empathy.78/100

Ben L (mx) wrote: I really admired Flirting With Disaster. It's funny from start to finish, all while taking a sudden dramatic turn in the third act that still manages to be funny, even if it is dark humor. David O. Russell knows how direct his actors, and with films like The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook, and American Hustle, he hasn't lost it.

Michael T (jp) wrote: One of the films in THE WILLIAM CASTLE FILM COLLECTION DVD set. If ZOTZ was Castle's attempt to make a Disney film like FLUBBER (the original with Fred MacMurray) this is his attempt to make a Disney/Hayley Mills film like MOON SPINNERS. Khigh Dhiegh plays the charming yet sinister Red Chinese spy master, similar to the role he had played in THE MANCHIRIAN CANDIDATE and would soon be playing in HAWAII FIVE-OH (he played the recurring villian, Wo Fat, from 1968-1980). ZOTZ was fun but this one is a bit flat, Castle's forte was horror.
Luis G (es) wrote: This film is an interesting watch and quite enjoyable. I must admit though i was hoping to be more impressed than I actually was though. Well firstly, it is funny in parts and it does deserve to be labelled as a comedy. I think though it is really kind of an art house project with editing in bits of old noir movies with a whole host of fine golden age actors. The problem is, take a look at the Jerk which is Carl Reiner directed and Steve Martin's debut. That film is really funny and I love it to bits. Now with this film its slightly funny and I feel that it hasn't tried to be that funny, more so just a clever little Idea. I think the main point of this film is a spoof but with affection, it is a bit lacking though in the comedy which I was a bit disappointed in. The plot doesn't deserve to mention its really not one that will blow your mind, it is in itself a spoof of noir plots. Watch this film and see glimpses of "The Jerk" style humour mixed with with a "guess who" for all you film noir buffs :)
Eric H (br) wrote: The only good thing you can say about this movie is that somehow escaped making it to the list worst 10 films of all time. It might be a misnomer to really call it a movie. It has a few "actors" walking around and talking;we have some background music etc. So, technically it probably qualifies as a movie. However, it has no plot, logical sequence of events, coherent speech, rational beginning or end.
Raven L (mx) wrote: It was an odd, but decent movie at first, just when I really started to like it, it took an ugly and hateful turn. Couldn't even watch the last 20 minutes or so. I skipped through and caught the jist of the end, I still feel a little sick to my stomach and the only lesson I've taken away from this movie is that god fearing rich people are the worst sort of people.
