When you have an opportunity,
“I’m putting an end to the tyranny! I will fight for my people. I will bring them peace and glory!” Another impressive independent brief movie to enjoy. El Luchador is made by filmmaker Polaris Castillo and informs the story of an expert wrestler who enters into privacy after his unbeaten streak concerns an end. This is a really excellent, well-crafted, psychological brief movie that talks to a lot more than simply battling and the Lucha Libre life. A few of the video footage advises me a little bit of Darren Aronofsky’s The Wrestler, however this decreases its own course when it concerns the real story and characters. Fire it up below.
Original brief movie description from Vimeo: “A professional wrestler goes into seclusion after his undefeated streak comes to an end.” El Luchador is both composed and directed by Mexican filmmaker Polaris Castillo, who has actually been making brief movies and more. You can follow him @PolarisCastillo – or see more of his work here or on Vimeo. The brief movie is produced by Polaris Castillo, Dan Marcus and Julian Park, as a Sweet Nightmares + Hyper Tensive Films production. Including cinematography by Pascal Combes-Knoke, music made up by Joelian Sanchez. For details, see Sweet Nightmares’ website. For more shorts, click on this link. Thoughts?
