The Latin American Pulp Fiction! This movie is great. It uses violence as a simple vehicle to tell a very smart story completely filled of amazing dark humor and full of cultural references. The "Sierra" character could not be funnier and the soundtrack is full of a very cool Latin vibe (I love the title song "Perro come Perro" by local band Superlitio). I hope they did a good job with the subtitles for the non-Spanish speaking market (I will have to wait for the DVD to check it out by myself) but I guarantee an amazing experience if you speak Spanish and count Pulp fiction and Reservoir dogs between your favorite movies. I do and I definitely had a blast.
Terrific portrait of Cali's underworld. This is an accurate while though portrait of crime underworld in Cali (second biggest Colombian city), plenty of a dark sense of humor and local culture elements such as witchery, drug traffic, poverty, and a very interesting atmosphere of salsa and African American music.
It is remarkable the photography direction, specially the coloring and texture of all movie, which emphasizes the feeling of permanent heat (Cali is a tropical place). Oh, and the FX work is very convincing. If you have a lot of gunshots, you will need a lot of fake blood, right? Well, in this film every gun fire sequence is very well played without making you get out of focus of main plot.
Main characters are played in a very convincing way with a very local taste, but in the end of the film you get the feeling of having witnessed events that could happen at the darkest corners of any city in the world.
