The Colombian Dream

In this 2005 drug caper from Colombia, young slackers steal a large shipment of hallucinogenic pills and try to cash in on it. Carlos Sanchez Mendez's jittery handheld camerawork, complete with wide-angle and fish-eye lenses, contributes to the disorienting, spaced-out visual style, while the bizarre voice-over narration from an aborted baby, speaking omnisciently as an adult, serves mostly to clarify an increasingly convoluted plot. Writer-director Felipe Aljure does have something eloquent to say about the connection between drugs, greed, and capitalism. 120 min.
