The film about filmmaking is a theme that has certainly been visited before -- as visual mediums go, movies seem to love taking the opportunity to talk extensively about their glamorous selves -- but “Even the Rain,” a picture that could easily fall into the action genre as well, takes its navel-gazing to a bit of a deeper level; not so much a send up of the truly ridiculous elements that go into the making of any film (see our coverage of The Envelope’s Director’s Roundtable for proof of that) but more of a motif and palette from which to explore two different times, but with eerily similar injustices towards basic human rights.
