Dark Mirror Review


Terrible
For his debut feature-length Dark Mirror, the 35-year-old director Pablo Proenza has attempted to turn his heroine's fascination with light and angles -- she is a photographer and stay-at-home mother -- into his visual aesthetic. Sunlight blinds the eye as it pours through a window, and certain images are impaired by strains of artificial light in an attempt to call attention not only to the protagonist's state of mind but also the very process of filmmaking that is going on. Proenza wants us to be aware we are watching a film.

This is sadly the most interesting thing I can say about Dark Mirror, an otherwise dull, overwrought and hopelessly conventional thriller about a photographer named Deborah (Lisa Vidal) who triggers something when she takes a photo of herself in her bathroom mirror. Opening the gateway to the past or an alternative reality or, hey, her own madness, she begins to see images of a hooded slasher who inevitably begins to accrue a small body count.

I Like It Like That Review


Weak
Harmless yet considerably dull, I Like It Like That is the story of a harried Bronx woman (Vélez) who tries to make ends despite a housefull of kids, a cheating in-and-out-of-jail husband, nosy neighbors, and virtually no money. Her exploits typically involve screaming and door-slamming, until she gets a job working for record producer Dunne, when the comedy in the film is at its best. Not that it's great, but it's passable.

Chasing Papi Review


Terrible
Director Linda Mendoza's debut film, Chasing Papi, works like this: The movie's three gorgeous Latina leads are dating the same hunky guy, whom they affectionately call Papi (Eduardo Verástegui)--but you already know this from the movie trailer. The women are going to bump into one another at Papi's house in Los Angeles--but you already know this from the horoscope that gets read during the movie's first 15 minutes. For some reason, Papi is going to be unconscious for most of the movie--which you've already figured out from the extended shot of the scotch he just used to chase down a handful of tranquilizers. And finally, the women are going to end up fighting over him and eventually learning something about themselves in the process--which you know because, well, this is what passes for comedy these days.

As if this wasn't enough, there's another plotline running through the movie. To get to Los Angeles in the first place, one of the women, Cici (Sofía Vergara), offers to drive her friend's boyfriend's car from Miami to Hollywood, where it is to be delivered to two guys in a parking lot. Sure enough, the two guys turn out to be criminals of some unspecified sort who get angry when they can't find a bag of cash that was stashed in the car. The FBI gets thrown into the mix and, apparently, fun and laughs are supposed to ensue.
