Other than Its Bizarre Title Misfire…EXTIRPATOR Shows Us that in Peru…Less Is More! Que Viva La PachaMama!
11 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

Culture Clash is one of my favorite cinema themes. EXTIRPATOR offers up an interesting dose, in addition to a host of other oddities of the Seventh Art! The Action unfolds in an unnamed Peruvian small town, where going into detail could be considered a Spoiler, so we'll just forego that! This film highlights a number of subtle, but quite real culture differences: Small town values and dynamic vs. those of the Big City/Capital; Modern 21st century values vs. those inherited from centuries old Inca society; Police discipline and mentality vs. those of ordinary civilian society; And even a kids take on reality vs. those of professional adults!

But leaving the entirety of the aforementioned aside, EXTIRPATOR at times is a bit of a genre-bender, serving up a number of totally unanticipated elements! This, I think, makes for overall unpredictability and a cinematic treat that just isn't easily labeled or pigeon-holed! Couple this with a frequent incorporation of the Natural, Picture Post Card Peruvian Countryside, frequent soothing, yet haunting, strains of traditional Andean melodies, consistently excellent editing and cinematography, a no-frills story which projects a gripping and interesting narrative!

Director Manuel Siles certainly styles his work with a pleasant and impacting signature spin, which I'm sure most viewers will enjoy!

7 *'s....ENJOY!/DISFRUTELA!

Any comments, questions or observations, in English o en Español, are most welcome!....
