Most Beautiful Island
Directed by Ana Asensio
MOST BEAUTIFUL ISLAND is a psychological thriller set in the world of undocumented female immigrants hoping to make a life in New York City. Shot on Super 16mm with an intimate, voyeuristic sensibility, MOST BEAUTIFUL ISLAND chronicles one harrowing day in the life of Luciana, a young immigrant woman struggling to make ends meet while striving to escape her past. As Luciana's day unfolds, she is whisked, physically and emotionally, through a series of troublesome and unforeseeable extremes. Before her day is done, she inadvertently finds herself a central participant in a cruel game where lives are placed at risk, and psyches are twisted and broken for the perverse entertainment of a privileged few.
An undocumented woman struggling in NYC is offered an opportunity she can’t refuse, but soon discovers she’s involved in a dangerous game.
Cast: Ana Asensio, Natasha Romanova, Nicholas Tucci, Larry Fassenden, Caprice Benedetti
How do you feel about spiders? hee hee
Meh. Worth a watch? Yes, I guess. Epic entertainment? Lol, no. I mean, what should have been in that room is a fight to the death or something. Then again, I didn't make the movie.
This was one of the most anticlimactic movies I’ve seen in a long time. It definitely has that need to see what happens vibe to it which will keep you watching but the 2 minute mediocre adrenaline rush at the end wasn’t enough for me to strongly recommend it.
c'est soft mais j'ai aimé ça.
Not bad. Definitely a slow burn. Kept my interest, though I felt what was behind "door #1" could have been a little more shocking.
