Rohal's first full length movie won awards at various film festivals.That being said, it does not make it enjoyable.The movie strings together stories from a small, obviously poor, ruraltown somewhere in the east coast (it was shot in Pennsylvania). Themovie has been compared to Napoleon Dynamite, w...
Whatever "The Guatemalan Handshake" means in the title of Todd Rohal'soffbeat comedy (I think) I certainly hope it has nothing to do with thesexually explicit definition the always helpful Urban Dictionaryprovided me with. However, let's say that the title stems from thegraphic sexual fetish and tha...
I originally saw this film at Slamdance, and it left me wanting more.While it's visually arresting, the ideas all seem brilliant butincoherent. I struggled with the puzzle for a year. It took me thatlong to come around to the conclusion that it didn't all have to addup. That unlike most cinema, wher...
...so this one has to be quick. If you want a film that gives youtitties (sideboob, nip slip, or full frontal) and explosions, there arefilms for you. These films will make you say, "F*** yeah!" while youquietly fart, turn over the Nova, and drink the flat Coke fromyesterday's Valu-meal. If you want...
I find few films truly memorable, but this is one I haven't been ableto shake off. There is something disruptive about this film. Theuntidiness of the story together with the bright summer colors and loweconomic status of the characters gives the film a tone of reality. Theoddity of the characters, ...
"The Guatemalan Handshake" is a terrific story of loss and hope setagainst the backdrop of small-town Pennsylvania and the demolitionderby. The idea of the demolition derby and its goal of being the lastone still moving is played out in the various lives of the characters.Each of the characters suff...
My favorite musical group is the incomparable Feo Y Loco -- "TheWorld's Most Politically Incorrect Band." Among their many salaciouslysatirical songs is "Why Do I Need You When I've Got My Hand?" In asimilar fashion one can say to Hollywood's myopic moguls "Why Do I NeedYou When I've Got My HANDSHAK...
You found the IMDb page because some piece of media out there made youmore curious about this film. What everyone has told you is correct.This film is an absurdist masterpiece. Rather than referencing popculture, Mr. Rohal and his creative compadres have created pop culture.It's so interesting and b...
Underneath the initial exterior---humor and absurdity that is, TheGuatemalan Handshake is a true movie with such depth in themes,characters, and perspectives that it will make you laugh and scathe youat the same time.Throughout T.G.H, the narrative scenes are presented to us objectively,and while th...
...everything that's wrong with "indie" film. This is a hatefullypretentious, yet mind- bogglingly stupid film, made more maddening bythe apparent size of the budget.It's as if the director sat down and wrote a list of the hundredquirkiest things he could think of, and then just strung them together...
Watching this movie was so tedious and laborious that I think I wouldhave enjoyed a punch in the stomach far more. Now this is an indiemovie that you've probably never heard of, and for good reason too, butpray that you stay lucky and never accidentally see it. Who knows,someone may break into your ...
