I’m Gonna Explode 2008
Voy a explotar (original title)
1h 46min | Drama | 19 June 2009 (Mexico)
Tale of a young couple who throw caution to the wind and set out in search of their true fate. Román is the son of a contemptible, right-leaning congressman. Recently enrolled in a new high school, the rebellious teen clumsily attempts to hang himself on-stage at the big talent show. Maru is the sole member of the audience to applaud, earning both students a day of detention. After bonding during the course of their punishment, Román and Maru grab daddy’s gun, steal a Volkswagen, and hit the road bound for nowhere.
In this case, what starts out as an interesting “outsider boy meets outsider girl and their inner selves bond” premise slowly gets lost as it repeatedly diverts from their story into trivia and returns to the “pair bonding story” before it finally concludes without a real resolution. leaving you wondering “and what happened THEN?”
There is semi-nudity and sexual activity, large dollops of “language” scattered throughout it, but the promise of the premise is washed out and lost before the ending, making the story ring hollow, neither fish nor fowl when the credits roll.
Most of the viewing audience liked it, they just could not fathom why it didn’t “really” come to a conclusion of some kind.
