EL CAYO SIGUE SIENDO NUESTRO


Los invito a que visiten la página de comentarios sobre la película Cayo en el "IMDb". Gracias al lector que me hizo el día, refiriéndome a esta joya de la literatura cibernética. A continuación, dos de los comentarios.

Very Bad Movie, OK for TV

Humm where do I start.

First off, Cayo doesn't offer any interesting visuals. Its a shame since it was filmed mainly on the beautiful island of Culebra (i know its beautiful because I've been there, if you judge it from watching the film..well..its just OK) The photography is just awful, not even the slightest effort (filters, waiting for the best time of day) to produce nice colors. Basically looks like it was filmed at midday on the harsh tropical sun, with skies blown out, silvery and turbid water (seen on some water shots). Looks like production compromise, not on purpose.

Its cool, but nothing new, that they told the story by methodically revealing the scenes of the character's past while they live in their presently tragic situation. Its what keeps one semi interested. But, while the clothes and styling somewhat matches the different times of the actors lives, the movie doesn't use color or any distinctive photography styles to distinguish them. Also, The director tries to blend in some political satire and humor but it isn't effective and its way to literal and silly on the verge of stupid.

There are some decent scenes. The detoxification of the female drug addict (Daris Mejias) is one of them, and the acting of young Ivan (Kamar De Los Reyes) while he is having some problems with his wife in his NYC is OK (along with Roselyn) making for a decent scene.

But overall the movie looks like too many people made choices on it and doesn't have a definitive style. Which is a shame since its concept warranted a much much better treatment.

This movie deals with the life and times of three friends. How life plays tricks on them and how in the end they promote feelings and reactions among those around them.

This comment is to Yiye. I am the producer of the film and would like to know, if possible who are you or what are you. I am open to the most severe criticism, I have a tough skin. But would like to refer you to the rest of the viewers and comments herein included. I feel that most of your comments are charged against the film for other reasons not really related to the film. Maybe you saw a presentation at a movie house that had a blurry projector. The photography by Milton Grana has been hailed by those who know about Cinematography and those who do not. I do not find your comments fair to him, among others.

I hope you can someday watch this film from a not prejudiced vision.

We feel we have a good film. We do not think we have the best, or a perfect film...if that is a possibility.

¿Quién eres y qué eres? Me canso de patrullar el ciberespacio ¿sabes? Todos los días desde que estrenó la película me levanto y voy search engine por search engine en busca de críticas y comentarios sobre el cayo. De esta no sé si me podré reponer: hasta en la ínsula me insultan. Pq es tan difícil de entender q la película que hice es una joya: que captura la condición puertorriqueña en su plenitud y que se ha reservado, modestia aparte, un rinconcito en el canon cinematográfico universal? Yo sé que si buscas bien dentro de tu carazón te darás cuenta de que el cayo también es tuyo.

¿Alguien me puede decir qué rayos le pasa a Pedro Muñiz? Un artista sin crítica no es nada y eso lo sabe él de sobra. Un artista nacionalista, arrogante y simplón es el colmo de males. Además, ¿New Age? Busco dentro de mi corazón después de leer esta estupidez y lo que encuentro es mucha vergu:enza ajena. ¡Rinconcitos en el canon cinematográfico, qué mediocridad, qué servilismo a la charrería progre, qué espanto! Cayo en el buscador de Google y después del search aparece Juan Bobo con una puerca emperifollada al hombro.
