Brotherdeacon's rating of the film Castro

All the hard work shows and I wish it didn't. All the director's cleverness shows and I wish it didn't. Comes off like a very savvy film editor/director's calling card to those with deep pockets. Castro seems to have one foot in the absurd and one foot in post-modern storytelling, but I could never find its core or essence--a reason to exist besides that same cleverness.
