Life sharp as a machete

Life sharp as a machete

Robert Rodriguez is a very complicated character.

 

On the one hand, postmodern genius, creator of such films as "Desperado" or "From dusk to dawn", and on the other a miserable laborer putting off the buggy with family productions like "Little Agents". I have no idea why his filmography is so uneven, whether it is caused by a split personality or another serious dysfunction, but I certainly know one thing - "Machete" is a master film, shot by the creator of "Sin City", not "Wish Stone". The story of the revenge of an angry Mexican originates in the brilliant "Grindhousie" by the Tarantino / Rodriguez duo. It was there, between the screening of the movie Tarantino ("Death Proof") and Rodriguez ("Planet Terror"), you could see a trailer-joke, to the non-existent movie "Machete", telling about I was an agent who decides to do justice with his, not guess machetes.

 

The idea seemed to Rodriguez so great that he decided to make a full-length film. And it happened very well because it created entertainment in its entirety. The director plays with individual B-class films like a child who got a new car. For him, a movie is a playground, not a boring job. Just like with Top 11 movie streaming websites no sign up , he threw in all possible schemes of cheap "stockists" here, without being beaten by the bush. He transforms stereotypes creating a mix that only in the hands of such a talented freak could come out tasty. It is also excellent how the "Machete" has been styled. It's a thoroughbred grindhouse, in every respect. From the first scene there are no illusions about what the next hundred minutes of screening will look like. Photos, poor image quality, and even editing - it all screams that it's poor. However, in this case weaknesses are just advantages. The same applies to the heroes or dialogues they give. It is not an art to write bad dialogues, it is an art to consciously write bad dialogues, which in their shallowness conceal unimaginable strength. Each Machete text is in a class of its own, and I'm sure some quotes will go to the classics of the "tough" one-liners. "Machete" laid me on the shoulder with a trailer already three years ago during the screening of "Grindhouse". Now, the full-length movie only killed me and didn't let me get up. Rodriguez is a master of playing with form. A puppeteer who can make a beautiful performance from the ugliest puppets. Let him finish shooting the fourth "Little Agents" and take "Sin City 2" or subsequent parts of the story about the angry Mexican, because, quoting a priest, brother Macheta, "God has mercy, I don't ..." ..
