The Everything Movie
9 October 2004 | by (Jackson Heights, NY) – See all my reviews

The IMDb listing for "Cosa de Brujas" offers up so many different genres that you'll probably think: Impossible. Or stupid. Well, it's possible and supremely intelligent. This amazing little movie manages to be funny, exciting, surprising, scary, and most of all a wonderful puzzle in which many of the pieces seem to be missing and then, suddenly, you realize that most of them are right there in front of you. By the end, every last one has moved perfectly into place. I have to admit I knew almost nothing about the film going into it. (If only we could have this experience with ALL films, we'd discover the surprise inherent in a good movie and wake up to what we really enjoy. We also might start thinking for ourselves, rather than parroting the critics.) If you don't stay alert, "Cosa de Brujas" can be confusing; my friend gave up on it a half an hour in. It appears to be moving in a linear fashion, but somewhere along the line you'll realize it's not, and that's when the fun (and the need to stay alert) really kicks in. In order not to spoil that fun, I won't say anything more except to comment on some performances: Manuela Arcuri is luscious as the femme fatale, a knock-out combo of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Diane Lane, and Antonio Hortelano as the messenger is so goofy, sweet and real that, even if this kind of shambling is his only "shtick," it's an absolute delight to see here. I thought of "Nadie Conoce a Nadie" while watching this movie, but it's nowhere as dependent on computers and paranoia and is much lighter on its feet--though every bit as much of a brainteaser. I suspect "Cosa de Brujas" was not a big hit in its home country of Spain (otherwise we'd have heard more about it). It's too intelligent and puzzling to be mainstream, even though its coupling of thriller-supernatural-comedy-romance certainly is. But I hope adventurous movie-lovers will take a chance. If so, they'll end this film with a big grin on their face.
