At one point my notes included the gut reaction "This is awful."
Not to be a killjoy, but had Hernández simply made a more straightforward, conventional movie about the life and loves of a rising gay Mexican film director, he might have had something.
A film that is impeccable from a formal point of view, but that begins to stumble with the limits of its speech. [Full review in Spanish]
If the film defies conventional form, it does so without the gravitas that conceptual cohesion brings, quickly rendering its experimentation into gratuitous aesthetic masturbation.
(Director Julian) Hernandez provides loads of sexy scenery but not much sense. The film is heavy on slow, sensual storytelling that more often than not demands viewers' intuition rather than offer clearly delineated characters and relationships.
...Hernandez merely revels in his own pretentiousness, staging one dully limp encounter after another with self-conscious camerawork and absurdly stilted drama that renders the entire project a pseudo-porny slog.
