Good crime film in line with the new Mexican cinema
5 November 2005 | by (Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

This film, currently playing on Latin American Cinemax, for those of you out there in cable TV land, is a good crime film in the general mold of the new Mexican "reality" cinema ("Amores Perros", "Nicotina" & the like).

This one is somewhat different in that it is not located in gritty Mexico City. Its depiction of life in a Mexican jail and its variety of inmates add freshness to what is becoming a somewhat over worked genre. The film's location at a large city just on the other side of the U.S. also allows the film makers to address issues and crimes inherent to border towns, another welcome difference from recent Mexican films exported abroad.

The title refers to one of the main characters who is a boxer "Pink Fists". But don't be fooled, this is not a boxing movie. The part time boxer (also a mortician) becomes involved with the world of crime by accident - being at the wrong place at the wrong time. His consequent involvement with this underworld is what moves the film. Definitely recommendable.
