100-Word TIFF: “Vaquero”

Vaquero – part of TIFF’s city-to-city Buenos Aires spectacular – is a film about film (and anyone who knows me knows this is a pet peeve of mine), concerning a struggling actor whose apparent talents and sexual mores are constantly at odds with an industry based on schmoozing and blind luck. It’s a fun film, with some genuinely good and realistic comedy, but comes off more as a series of interesting anecdotes from the world of acting than a true film. One for the actors among us, but not a necessity for the world at large (though I love BA).
