The Merciful and Compassionate?2001

  • 2.5
Mexican singer Alejandro Fernandez's 1995 international hit "Como quien pierde una estrella" overlays posterized images of a teeming city and of a couple looking upward as an airplane moves like a fly across the sky with blank frames that translate the lamentations of the broken-hearted singer into English. The film's title suggests filmmaker Rock Ross has his tongue firmly in his cheek regarding the melodramatic feelings of the singer. But he couldn't very well call it THE SORROW AND THE PITY now could he? - Marilyn Ferdinand
