In “Quicksand,” director Andres Beltran and writer Matt Pitts tell the tale of a couple at the brink of divorce, venturing to South America. The film opens with a thrilling prologue featuring hunters in the rainforest, setting the stage for an intense experience. Unfortunately, this intensity isn’t sustained throughout the film, as the subsequent scenes suffer from disorienting fast cutting and an overbearing score. Carolina Gaitán and Allan Hawco’s performances as the struggling couple are commendable, but the script fails to provide the necessary depth for their characters. As they find themselves stuck in the titular quicksand, the film explores the idea of reconciliation amidst peril, yet lacks the emotional impact it strives for. With more refined direction and a stronger screenplay, “Quicksand” could have been a more compelling cinematic experience. Visit myflixer for more!
