I love all the concepts here, but despite being a competent film, it never manages to fully take advantage of any of them. Seriously, the movie has a perfect metaphor between conquistadors, exploitative filmmakers, and
greedy companies right there, but it never uses it anywhere near as well as it should. The acting's phenomenal - but besides that, everything else is perfectly middle of the road.
For a film with the same message about exploitative and colonial filmmaking but actually phenomenal, stick with Cannibal Holocaust.
That is the most absurd recommendation I will ever write.
