Competencia Oficial (ENGLISH SUBS)
Hoping to leave some kind of legacy, an ageing billionaire (José Luis Gómez) sets his sights on making a hit movie and assembles an all-star team for it.
‘Rather than a love letter to the cinematic arts, this very funny Spanish-language satire… is more of a poison pen jab to the jugular. It dismantles the lofty ambitions of cinema as great, important and significant, a monument on the cultural landscape. Instead, it shows us art for ego’s sake, and it has a lot of wickedly spiteful fun doing so… It is Cruz, fiercely deadpan and utterly bonkers, who steals the film… This may be the most perceptive film about the movie-making business since Tom DiCillo’s “Living in Oblivion.”’—Wendy Ide, The Observer
