Critic Reviews for Hombre Mirando al Sudeste
It shows huge promise -- its mystery, its patient pace and its eerie resonance sometimes transcend its didactics.
There's a pleasing mood to "Man Facing Southeast" that makes you want to like it. But the story is so sluggish and takes such illogical twists that you give up.
This is the movie that "K-Pax" ripped off.
Audience Reviews for Hombre Mirando al Sudeste
Hollywood went in to do a remake: "K-pax" but it did not work out! Subiela is a rare cinama genius with such titles as "The dark side of the heart". Eliseo Subiela indulges in a neo-materialistic discourse witha new dialectic approach that would leave even Hegel flabbergasted. Highly political, it's a very elegant critic to the post-industrialization, consumer society. Set in Argentina, the editing and camera work are exquisite. Go ahead and get it, this you will regret not :)
Go rent this film right now!
A man shows up at an insane asylum
and claims he is from another planet.
He is a genius and begins to show the
hospital staff the blind spots with respect
to their humanity. The orchestra scene is perhaps my favorite of any film!
A surprisinly good SciFi/Fantasy from Argentina with very deep Philosphical insihts of religion, psychiatry and relations. It was unfrtunately remade as an Americam film K-PAX - which had potential based on it's cast but lost so much in translation
