Just a student's homework
12 June 2007 | by andres-08See all my reviews

I just read in the papers a comment by Diego Luna about Monterrey. He said that Monterrey is a difficult plaza, because of the number of people that went to see his documentary. Well, i agree with him: Monterrey isn't the best plaza, but... his documentary is just, with all the respect, a well done student's homework -nothing more. Yes, it is well produced, he has the money and he is well connected... he interviewed the right people (like for example, Don King). But that is all, OK, no, it is also well edited, but that's it. It has no plot, it doesn't seems to fit the connection between the political thing and his life... Luna goes nowhere with the story. And another thing... why the hell does he had to appear in the shot? to sell more? It is just sad to watch documentaries like this, when there is so much talent in Mexico. I do respect Luna as a great actor and as a good producer, but please, you do not have to monopolize the industry in Mexico.
