As pretentious and wispy as its title.

Mr. Hernández's attempt to put an interior landscape on film a la Pasolini may seem stultifying and pretentious, but it's also a brave dark experiment.

A murky and morbid dirge of a gay romance set in Mexico City.

Self-indulgent in the extreme, Julian Hernandez's laconic ode to heartbreak feels like the work of a lovelorn teenager.
