Bad Day to Go Fishing- July 16th

Bad Day to Go Fishing (2009)
Spanish/English- Drama/Dark Comedy
Not Rated
Runtime- 100 min.
dir. Álvaro Brechner

I find this film very difficult to describe in many ways.  Basically a strongman and a slick trickster go around duping small town after small town.  The little town of Santa Maria may be their unexpected downfall.

Story/Writing: 1.5/2

Absorbing, but strange in it’s path.

Acting: 1.5/2

Great characters are made to examine their own motivations, as well as who they really are.

Photography/Set: 1.5/2

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

The effects were pretty good, and I really like the music.

Misc: 1.5/2

Very watchable, and fits into a small-ish package.

VERDICT: 7.5/10

Good if you like an off-kilter flick about strange characters.
