Festival Sitges 2008


smells like a teen spirit

From time to time i like to immerse on films like this. Those are the moments in which one enters a film for pure relaxation. I guess it’s the same kind of spirit such filmmakers as Kawasaki put into creating this.

Some of these rides are actually very profitable, and i think it is a mistake to excuse every unconsidered element of a film just because it is a B-flick or because the budget was close to zero. Some great, intelligent work has been that over that.

Here we have a film made out of two elements: the will to freely play with known faces of the political scene these days, and the will to produce special effects that deliberately looking false and old-fashioned. I think this crew must have had a lot of fun making this, and in certain moments i too enjoyed being there. But it is the kind of fun a group of adolescents has making fun of an unlikable teacher or painting obscene messages on a wall. I’m OK with that, but something better could be put into this. It was nice to be watching a Power Rangers kind of fight so many years later, but ‘nice’ is not good.

You know what this is now. It’s your choice to embrace it or not. I did it with some interest, but i won’t do it again.

The pace is slow, cinematic rhythm was not also in the mind of these folks.

My opinion: 1/5
