Standing Up for Your Beliefs
8 April 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I guess Bradbury wanted to show how an arrogant, pushy director gets his because he deserves it. A movie crew comes rolling into a Mexican village, ignores everyone, and sets up shop to film a soft drink commercial. The guy (played by Gregory Sierrra) who lives above the street sees it as an invasion of privacy and an act of disrespect. He begins to sabotage the shooting by walking in front of the camera, stopping what they are doing. The thing is that they reluctantly agree to move to another spot, but he rallies others to get in the way as well. They move again. Personally, I get the whole respect thing, but there is such a thing as having some respect for the efforts. Anyway, I found the whole thing simplistic and found the Mexican guy quite boorish.
