Audience Reviews for Duck Season (Temporada de patos)

  • Dec 23, 2011
    Usually when comes to the TOMATOMETER rating it's mostly correct. Unfortunately, the critics don't always get it right, that the case with Duck Season. Now watching a movie about two boring teenagers in a apartment with nothing to do is boring. While there might be some enjoyable moment, it feels like a movie of "filler". It not entirely bad, the actors do a good job on acting what the audience is thinking while watching this, bored. I admire it being in black & white since it's rare to see a movie in that format being made in modern time. To bad it's not a good movie as I felt the story didn't have enough material to keep me engage and made me consider turning it off. Unfortunately, the film few good moments are short and we the set throughout the whole movie. While the film 12 Angry Man also mostly took place in one set, it had enough material and a strong cast to keep us entertain unlike Duck Season. Duck Season, may I say, is a over-rated movie that makes me wonder if these critics were paid to write good reviews for this bore fest. Now while it nice to have a slow pace movie like this in this day and age, it suffers from lack of materials, any interesting actor, and is overall a poorly made movie.

    What to do in a monotonous sunday? Sundays are always boring, anyway. But if the lights go off and you can´t play videogame anymore? You deliver a pizza, of course, but why not making a cake maybe? Duck Season shows in a very simple but effective way the banality and not always obvious complexity of a generation growing up in a society of trash food and trash culture. Nothing really happens at the same time that everything does: discovery of sexuality, first kiss, divorce, parent´s absence, loneliness. The pizza delivery man represents, perhaps, the future: as it´s possible to survive to a sunday, maybe it´s not possible to avoid the inevitable frustration... <br> <br>

    A black and white meditation on boredom, young lust and determination in the face of nothing better to do and being young enough to know that you've got to make the most of it. Of course, the whole movie is an expression of friendship. What better way to show you love someone than to hang out with them all day doing nothing? Pot Brownies, porn and pizza help these kids along the way. <a href="http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/?action=view¤t=temporadadepatos.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/temporadadepatos.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    After all those great things I'd heard about this my expectations were high but..., Not a bad film but tries so hard to be simple that almost loses it, I hope Matando Cabos will be better
