An admirable ironic twisted and impulsive thriller.
10 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

"Los Lobos De Washington " is an admirable ironic, twisted and impulsive con thriller about a group of three friends (Bardem unbalanced, brain Fernandez and bewildered Alterio) want to give a man (Jose Sancho), which in turn he is deceived by his wife with another offender (San Juan) who wants to get through the matter and take the money.

It is the third film by director Mariano Barroso and confirmation of his talent and importance in the Spanish cinema, having a unique style, which brings together heterogeneity of genres and concerns are addressed in an original and interesting way. Barroso has the film of male characters, full of psychological and dramatic force, which gives full confidence to his players. It is theater of conflicts and characters combined gender (psychological drama, sentimental film, modern thriller) Sealing strength, technically flawless, also part of original scripts,

Barroso still focusing on issues of its own: the absence / search for a family / parent, betrayal and how confusion and lies petty things (money always in the middle despite the heavy weight of feelings) leads to the explicitness of that rich pettiness of the human condition and the clarification, all those lies, of this truth. In the film, humans try and kill like wolves, because the wolf is a metaphor of man,

Masterful interpretations of Javier Bardem, Eduard Fernández, José Sancho and even Ernesto Alterio, with superb photography and insightful Nestor Calvo music Binger Mendizabal. It has very good script with impeccable rhythm.

It seems a movie of the Coen brothers made in Madrid. The characters are seedy, yet endearing, always are drawn by forces that do not understand or want to understand, which leads them to surreal, full of unpredictable situations matches, but come to seem inevitable and "logical".
