An uneven director, lots of work-for-hire in his catalogue... but his best are sublime, and he can usually be counted on for a proto-feminist and queer-adjacent sensibility that wasn't common in the Mexican film industry back then.
4-18: "Expressive esoterica" level -- some combination of
very solid mainstream-film values, auteurist titles with intriguing allegorical levels that don't always work perfectly, and gender-studies theses that consistently promote a coherent pro-feminist critique.
19-30: Acceptable entertainments, not particularly interesting in any way.
31-35: Unusually dull.
36-41: Really dire.
