The Supreme Uneasiness: Incessant Portrait of Fernando Vallejo

Finally, a documentary that makes the writing process as fascinating as the profiled writer—in this case Fernando Vallejo, an openly homosexual novelist, filmmaker, and political provocateur who abandoned his native Colombia for Mexico in 1971 but was little known outside Latin America until the publication of his novel Our Lady of the Assassins. His conversations with director Luis Ospina for this 2003 video range from the death of Colombian society to the intrinsic honesty of the first person to the crime of bringing children into a violent world. A relentless critic, Vallejo spares neither himself nor others, dismissing Gabriel Garcia Marquez as a facile scribbler and fearlessly denouncing statesmen who cooperate with drug cartels. 93 min.
