A gritty arthouse urban thriller inspired by real events, Adios Vaya Con Dios is the authentic story of two friends within the world of Chicago's Latino street gangs. A day of reckoning approaches for Rory, a rising Irish-Mexican street lieutenant for the Olmecs, when his trusted life-long friend Eloy, just released from prison, dives right back into the chaotic crucible of violence and retribution that engulfs their neighborhood. Their friendship and loyalty to each other is tested to the limit.Written by

If you think you're getting guns and action you're completely in for a surprise. I didn't expect a film carved out with such an artistic hint. Actor and writer Zachary Laoutides does something very different then just your classic gangster film. Adios Vaya Con Dios may have not reached it's full potential due to limitations, but creatively Zachary Laoutides with his talented art designer, Alfredo Kaos Leon who created the skeletorian makeup add depth into the lackluster films that Hollywood has been creating that trust in formulations.
There is something different at work here, one in the stylishness of how the film is shot by Timothy J. Aguado, the rock music, the transitions from scenes introducing us with montage setups, as Olmec gang leader Tiger De'Leon puts it, "This isn't your hood," and I'm glad it's not the typical Hollywood hood instead we are getting something intellectual and imaginative.
It may disappoint some, who are awaiting gang warfare to erupt on the tough Chicago streets, but Zachary Laoutides stays authentic and truthful to the storytelling and budget he had.
