Busy documentary on an interesting subject.
12 March 2003 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

The Latino presence in Hollywood movies is a good subject and this is an ambitious attempt to square up to it.

BRONZE SCREEN has two faults. It races through material we'd like to see explored at greater length - the Spanish Dracula for one and it is conformed to the model of all these, determined to show Hollywood as a perpetrator of evil stereotypes. Yes, Chris Pin Martin did spend his screen life trying to shoot John Wayne in the back but I'd like to see a more studied argument.

Getting so much material, usually in good copies, must have been a major undertaking and some of the factual material is new but the downside is that things register as superficial.

The best segment gets away from the usual model and shows the work of Latino cameramen effectively, including non Hollywood material. A complete film on this trying to define a Hispanic look would have been a more worthwhile undertaking.

Nice to find Pablo Ferro still at work on the graphics.
