Technically, this film isn’t quite as sharp as I was expecting, or at least hoping it would be, considering the ambition and veterans of technical competence behind this project, but the film still turns in more than a few colorful technical touches – from fine occasions within Eduardo Martinez Solares’ generally so-so, to the aforementioned more consistent strengths andt technicality – to compose worthy style that adds livliness to crlsteros, something gzrcia deserves as much livliness as it can get.
