It's been a long time since we felt this good watching a film
14 August 2010 | by j7lrSee all my reviews

I just saw La Soga (The Butcher's Son). It's by far the best film made in the Dominican Republic over the last 20 years (One-way Ticket, made in the 80s was also very good). Not a cheap extended sketch or an episode from a bad soap opera. It's excellent. You can't miss this movie. It would be difficult to find someone not affected profoundly by it, after watching it. Other Dominican "filmmakers" should take it as a model to learn how to shoot a good movie. This one shows it's possible to make good movies with low budget. It is much better than most Hollywood movies we commonly see in theaters. Here you never know what will happen next. It reminds us the film City of God that we saw a few years ago. There is never a dull moment. From beginning to end, the film fills us with different emotions. There is action, suspense, comedy, romance ... It's been a long time since we felt this good watching a film. This is one of the reasons why we love movies so much, but good ones.
