ISF: Lili's Paradise (2009) Dir: Melina Leon Date Seen: September 24, 2009 Rating: 3.25/5
Lili's Paradise is in many ways an idiosyncratic and intriguing look at what growing up in Peru in the '80s was like for the spoiled children of lower-upper class intellectuals. It's also too direct to resonate beyond a point--a good indicator of its patronizing view of its eponymous adolescent is that her fantasy world is filmed in color while everything else in black-and-white. Looks great though and its fun to see a character give the finger to teachers at school by calling them "Fascists!" But....meh.
