Memorias del Subdesarrollo
Memories of Underdevelopment
Directed by Tomas Gutierrez Alea
I am so behind in this blog, it is ridiculous. The mounting number of posts I have to write has failed to be a motivator; in fact, I have been procrastinating for the past two days. I am finally settling down to write and hopefully make a dent in the 10+ posts I have to write...
Our main slime ball character, Sergio, decides to stay in Cuba, even though most people, including his wife, are fleeing to Miami due to the violence and social changes. I guess he wants more time to sleep with his girlfriends without his wife's interference?
I did not like this film at all. I felt like it was a worse version of Hiroshima Mon Amour. The style was all over the place as well. I get that it was trying to resemble how we recall our own memories but I was already confused about the events in the film. So basically I have no idea what happened. Why are subtitles always so terrible?
Anyway, sorry for the short review; we got lots to do people!
Heavily influenced by Hiroshima Mon Amour. HA! Knew it!
