Manuel: What, you jacked off this morning?
Gregorio: No, because of this.

Manuel: What?
Gregorio: See this mark? An earwig crawled inside me there.
Manuel: Are you going to start with your bullshit?
Gregorio: No, seriously, man. An earwig crawled inside me and opened up my veins. Now I can get more blood in my brain. More light can come in, man. I think better now.

A Riveting Trip into Madness
16 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Explicit and disturbing, El Bufalo de la Noche is the story of a young man, Manuel, embarking into the twisted psyche of his best friend Gregorio after Gregorio's suicide. The film focuses on three periods of time in the lives of Manuel and Gregorio. Unlike the tacky portrayal of times passed found in most movies (usually shown with a change in hair style) the effects of pain and loss can be seen and felt in the outstanding performances of the players. Indeed, the performances of Diego Luna, Irene Azuela, Liz Gallardo and Gabriel González can be called nothing short of brilliant. The grim tone of the film reflects the darkness of the mind, the struggle between loyalty and temptation and helplessness in the face of human weakness. If you are looking for something easy and straightforward to watch, rent Pirates of the Caribbean. If you want to see something complex and intensely visceral, something that will leave you with shivers, watch El Bufalo de la Noche.
