Fascinating Argentinian movie, ahead of Hollywood's time
25 June 2003 | by (LA, CA) – See all my reviews

This is a beautifully shot movie from Argentina about a small band of men engaged in small time, get-rich quick schemes, with a charismatic but shady leader. The film is stylish, with beautifully lit black and white cinematography, elegantly seedy costumes and a lush dark score by Lalo Schifrin (his first film score, with a moody sax performance by Gato Barbieri). The uniformly fine cast give tense, sexually-charged performances that keep the more melodramatic moments from bogging down. A really gem of a film.
