Perhaps Andrew Nuth should learn about the art of movie making
before he presumes to speak about “The Motorcycle Diaries” as
having “poor-quality filming” (Oct. 18 in the Collegian).
Low-budget films aren’t synonymous with poor-quality films; I’d
wager a bet that the director of the movie (Walter Salles, for
those who are wondering, since Nuth chose not to include this
information in his piece) used a shaky camera and grainy quality
for artistic purposes. Glossy and glamorous “Hollywood shots”
wouldn’t have worked with the content. If your writer of film
reviews can’t understand that, maybe he shouldn’t be reviewing.
