Did You Know?


Gally's hat stays pristine through about 9/10ths of the movie and is clearly the same hat, however, it appears two other hats (similar to each other yet different from the original) were used at the end to show the wear and tear of the night. See more »

Robert Duval , Jeremy Irvine and Angie Cepeda are terrific in this Emilio Aragon's English Language debut
9 August 2015 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Spanish/US co-production well played , magnificently set in Mexico , stunningly directed and it pays tribute to the great American actor Robert Duvall . About to lose the property that's been in his family for generations, Texas rancher Red Bovie (Robert Duvall) is contemplating suicide , as forced to sell his family ranch to developers, a financially strapped but proud senior citizen, finally meets his grandson (Jeremy Irvine) and gets involved with drug dealers (Luis Tosar) .

This is an exciting as well as thought-provoking story about sympathetic human beings and how they cope with an relentless chase who carry out some drug dealers . It is an extreme situation and this is conveyed pretty well by Emilio Aragon ; as a trio of unfortunate characters -perfectly played by Robert Duval , Jeremy Irvine and Angie Cepeda- are mercilessly pursued and they have to flee with a loot that have found . The flick is dedicated in loving memory of Christopher Bates , executive producer of the film and dead at 2013 . The main discernible reason to watch Spanish director Emilio Aragon's English language debut , A Night in Old Mexico, results to be to see star Robert Duvall in front of a nice cast and center dancing circles around the cringe worthy supporting players . To be fair , his interpretation is fabulous , he is the first character , granting a special kind of depth . Intelligent and interesting script written by screenwriter William D. Wittliff, reteaming with Duvall for the first time since the memorable 1989 television miniseries, "Lonesome Dove" . It's a project that's reputed to be nearly 35 years in the making , but the end product can't quite justify the means with this reunion that feels akin to Duvall's last stint as director , 2002's ¨Assassination Tango¨ . And Duvall has recently directed ¨Wild Horses¨, he stars as an old rancher who once kicked his son off his property for being gay and now finds himself at the center of a missing person investigation ; in addition to starring , Robert directed a cast that includes James Franco and Josh Hartnett.

Thrilling as well as evocative musical score by the same filmmaker , Emilio Aragon , including Mexican sounds . Colorful and evocative cinematography by David Omedes . The motion picture was compellingly directed by Emilio Aragon , an effort that feels far superior in comparison his first film : ¨Paper birds¨ . The production and directing of his Opera Prima "Pájaros De Papel" (paper birds), a lifelong dream, seems he has been dedicating his whole life to , being nominated for Best First Director Award at 2011 Goyas (Spanish Oscars) .
