Raging Sun, Raging Sky joins my list here. Only a 5.8 on IMDb (398 ratings). Review highlights:
  • A pretentious bore! ... I couldn't believe it was made only one year ago, it's like watching a 30 years old Pasolini or Derek Jarman clone.
  • For a film as well made as this, you would rightly expect a good deal of praise. However, it is horribly self indulgent and far too long.
  • Overall, though, I'm glad I watched it, because it changed ME in a way I never would have expected. I discovered for the first time that I've spent all my life thinking of Mexico as a barbaric country full of poverty, drug lords, brutality, violence, filth, ugliness and absolutely nothing worthwhile. A country like that could not have given birth to a movie as accomplished and sophisticated as this movie is, so I'm completely overhauling my attitude toward our neighbor to the south.
  • This movie is 192 long boring minutes of naked men & a few women walking around & being in sexual positions. It is also in Black & White,The locations & persons cry out for color. There is no real plot or story, I do not mind figuring things out, BUT do not want to spend over 3 hours doing so.
Yep, it's good.
