Hacienda el Amor . . . Brujo | Chicago Reader

Hacienda el Amor . . . Brujo

Set in Chicago, Ricardo Islas's 2002 video is a tiresome pseudodocumentary about the making of his earlier epic, a Spanish-language horror flick called Amor Brujo. Casting himself as a narcissistic filmmaker, Islas rips off Woody Allen's screen persona as well as the freewheeling sketch format of Allen's early films, all to disastrous effect. Most of the humor is misogynist or driven by sexual embarrassment, and none of it shows even a rudimentary grasp of comic timing, rhythm, or pace. In English and subtitled Spanish. 100 min.
