Rodrigo is simply a master of the craft. As well as a true renaissance man. A director with a superb storytelling ability, as well as a strongly defined visual character that leaves no detail, large or small, untouched or forsaken. He poses an unbelievable knowledge of the language of filmmaking, from the narrative to the technical, yet also holds degrees in Music Composition and Art History. He is also a successfully published writer.
Winner of multiple awards for his work as a screen writer (“Apartment 143”) and as producer ("Grand Piano” starring Elijah Wood and John Cusack). Yet it is his directing work in the feature films ("Red Lights", staring Sigourney Weaver, Cillian Murphy and Robert DeNiro), and his much lauded film (“Buried” starting Ryan Reynolds) that has garnered him world-wide attention and acclaim. As Ann Hornaday writes for The Washington Post in her review of “Buried” and Rodrigo’s work: “...Buried delivers the kind of immediate experience too often missing in movies that are simply pictures of people talking… it represents cinema at its most intensely physical and psychological….Cortés's ingenious visual and sound design are plunged into the protagonist's plight with claustrophobic verisimilitude."
