Brutal and Incomprehensible. Both intended?

3 years, 8 months ago at May 20 0:16
This is the kind of movie I wish I could have watched in a movie theater. The tension is always high with a constant sense of menace that makes you feel incomfortable and sometimes a bit nauseous. This would have been great to watch in a closed dark room where you cant just tune off the movie to relief your own feelings. I had to watch this in my house computer so I got the same experience but lig... read more

“This is the kind of movie I wish I could have watched in a movie theater. The tension is always high with a constant sense of menace that makes you feel incomfortable and sometimes a bit nauseous. This would have been great to watch in a closed dark room where you cant just tune off the movie to relief your own feelings. I had to watch this in my house computer so I got the same experience but lighter.

The movie is brutal. Not only for the violence but the kind of life the characters are living.

"No me encantó la edición durante los primeros dos tercios, pero el último acto del filme es sumamente poderoso y desgarrador. La ironía de la forma en la que todo concluye, unido a la manera auténtica en la cual ello captura la realidad de México, es brillante. "
