Brutal and Incomprehensible. Both intended?

2 years, 5 months ago at May 20 0:16
This is the kind of movie I wish I could have watched in a movie theater. The tension is always high with a constant sense of menace that makes you feel incomfortable and sometimes a bit nauseous. This would have been great to watch in a closed dark room where you cant just tune off the movie to relief your own feelings. I had to watch this in my house computer so I got the same experience but lig... read more

"Miss Bala is loosely based on a real incident, in which 2008’s Miss Sinaloa, Laura Zúñiga, was arrested with suspected gang members in a truck filled with munitions outside Guadalajara, Jalisco. The film suggests her pageant victory was blatantly fixed by criminal elements. If you want more info then click here for Laura Zúñiga "

“This is the kind of movie I wish I could have watched in a movie theater. The tension is always high with a constant sense of menace that makes you feel incomfortable and sometimes a bit nauseous. This would have been great to watch in a closed dark room where you cant just tune off the movie to relief your own feelings. I had to watch this in my house computer so I got the same experience but lighter.

The movie is brutal. Not only for the violence but the kind of life the characters are living. There´s only one character who feels human in the entire movie, the protagonist "Laura Guerrero", and even she is half of the movie in shock acting like a zombie. This is intended and a good way of expressing the way of life of some people who are about to die in any second meanwhile th” read more

" External Review @ TimeOut London Unlike some of the more notable films to come out about the drug trade south of the American border, this film seems less exploitative. It isn't action heavy nor is it emotionally heavy. The camera works to keep the viewer constantly following the main character, Laura. Yet, there is an emotional detachment created by keeping her face out of view for large portions of time. This lends to an almost documentary feeling throughout much of the film. We learn onl"

"No me encantó la edición durante los primeros dos tercios, pero el último acto del filme es sumamente poderoso y desgarrador. La ironía de la forma en la que todo concluye, unido a la manera auténtica en la cual ello captura la realidad de México, es brillante. "
