In the captivating film “Quicksand,” directed by Andres Beltran and written by Matt Pitts, a couple on the verge of divorce embarks on a journey to South America. The prologue in the rainforest sets an intense tone, but subsequent scenes suffer from disorienting fast cutting and an overwhelming score. Despite Carolina Gaitán and Allan Hawco’s commendable performances, the screenplay lacks the depth needed to fully connect with their characters. As they find themselves trapped in the rainforest, the film explores the idea of reconciliation amidst danger but falls short of delivering an emotionally gripping experience. With more subtle direction and a more nuanced screenplay, “Quicksand” could have truly shined and left a lasting impact on its audience. Visit flixtor for more!
