Faust Revisited
3 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

As disturbing as Los Sin Nombre but in my point of view much better as for the choice of actors and the way it was shot. I found it dark but funny. Its is explicit in its violence but yet it always serve the story. Santos' sense of humor is sick but brilliant. I definitely recommend it.
