DIR. RAYA MARTIN, MARK PERANSON | 2013 | 88MIN

A filmmaker (Alex Ross Perry), along with his local guide (Gabino Rodríguez), traverse the Yucatán in the days leading up to the “end of the world” with the idea of making his last movie. They look at possible locations, journeying to Chichen Itza on December 21, encountering a surrealistic gathering of New Agers and Mayan mystics. They meet a local TV reporter (Iazua Larios), who the filmmaker casts in his psychedelic Western. After the film is shot, the misunderstood and egomaniacal filmmaker decides to remain in Mexico, editing his masterpiece, forever.

.

Nowadays all films are similar. With all the pitching sessions, the creative labs and the coproduction funds, films take a bit from here and there, from this and that tradition, and even modify the length of a shot trying to find approval and consensus. There is an international style which is cloned ad infinitum.
