La Playa DC
Tomas, an Afro-Colombian teenager who fled the country's Pacific coast pushed out by the war, faces the difficulties of growing up in a city if exclusion and racism. When Jairo, his younger brother and closest friend disappears, Tomas plunges in the streets of the city. His search becomes an initiatory journey that compels him to face his past and to leave aside the influence of his is brothers in order to find his own identity. Through this journey, Tomas reveals a unique perspective of a vibrant and unstable city that, like Tomas, stands on the threshold between what once was and what might be.

(us) wrote: Aaron Katz's directorial vision is cutely charming if a little somnolent. In Cold Weather, he charts a course for startling Sherlock Holmes epiphany by way of slow, miniature indie-film smirk; his style is like Joe Swanberg (hip, tired, aloof-seeming mumblecore) meeting Christopher Nolan (slick, cerebral genre pictures).It's fun to watch Katz's uncertain twentysomething characters clumsily play detective, but it takes too long for their story to settle in and become natural. I don't mean just for the "plot/action" to start -- if you're waiting for that, it'll be forever -- but for the story (whatever it is, whatever it wants to be) to relax into itself. A perfectly confident artist can do that immediately.The shots that end up being more a pleasure, really, are the still environmental ones that cap those with movement and dialogue. The beauty and patience it takes to capture and translate them is marvelous. So Cold Weather probably won't satisfy if you're after a swift, plottable story, apart from visuals, but it's ambitious and generous besides.

At least Tia Carrere is hot as a reincarnated fire demon out to reclaim her kingdom. The awful hard rock riffs on the soundtrack during action scenes are a big minus. Otherwise the only difference between this and a sword-and-sandal flick filmed in two weeks in Argentina is a $20 million budget. You're better off catching an episode of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.

(au) wrote: After decades of bad dubbing and dollar store VHS reissues, it's easy to forget that many of Toho's 60s films were originally made with the thought of mainstream overseas success a serious possibility. Latitude Zero is probably Toho's most serious attempt at directly cracking the English-speaking market. Not only does it boast a whole slew of Caucasian actors instead of the usual token has-been, but EVERYONE speaks English, even the Japanese cast! While I'm sure this seemed more appealing than subjecting the film to yet another infamous dubbing job, I doubt the results are any better. Said Japanese cast obviously learned their lines phonetically, and their performances are painfully awkward as a result. Also, I wonder if some of them got cast simple because they could pull off the lines better than the other usual Toho players. I can't imagine any other way that Hikaru Kuroki could have wound up playing a part that was clearly intended for someone much younger (and, frankly, prettier) than her. Still, at least they have an excuse. Most of the white folks in in Latitude Zero don't even seem to be trying. Richard Jaeckel is wildly unlikable as a protagonist, and Joseph Cotten couldn't have less screen presence unless he just didn't show up. Not that they had a whole lot to work with, I'll grant you. The story started out as a radio serial in the '40s, and it's just as stupid and formulaic as you'd imagine that being. Aside from utterly abandoning logic solely to create action set pices that really weren't worth the trouble, the double-twist ending is pointlessly confusing and frustrating (it's not even worth the trouble of spoiling). Oh, and the monster suits! Someone REALLY dropped the ball in the house that Godzilla built this time around. Forget Gamera, you'd have to look to Infra-Man to find creatures this hilariously unconvincing. Really, the only thing about Latitude Zero that isn't a hoot and a holler for all the wrong reasons is Cesar Romero portrayal of the evil Dr. Malic. This is the best kind of mad scientist there is: the kind who knows he's evil and friggin' LOVES it. While he never reaches the levels of cackling excess that made his turn as The joker so memorable, Romero still cuts loose in a way that only Vincent Price could really have matched. I usually like the villains more than the heroes in these movies anyway, but Malic honestly is the only likable person in all of Latitude Zero. While it's more dialog heavy and less bugnuts crazy than its better-known Kaiju brethren, Latitude Zero is still essential viewing for anyone who loves Japanese SciFi at its schlockiest.
