Carlos defies his father and when his big day comes he finds out the harsh realities of life are even harsher than he imagined.Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated R for strong sexuality and language, and for violenceUser review:Odd, brave, if not completely successful drama.A Mexican father in Los Angeles forces his son, who wants to be an actor, into prostitution.The story details his misadventures in Hollywood in both the sexual and movie making arenas, as well as the completely dysfunctional family that surrounds him.Much like Arteta’s later films, there’s a surreal humor under it all, and a genuine weirdness at how matter of fact its all treated. Good use of music as well.The acting could have been better, which would have elevated it considerably. But it still is a unique, and strangely entertaining look at a warped and dysfunctional world.
