In an age where it is hard to get out of your comfort zone and enjoy a good movie, it’s no surprise that Damian Szifron’s dark comedy Relatos Salvajes Wild Tales (Wild Tales) is getting lots of attention. Starring some of Argentina’s best actors and co-produced with Pedro Almodovar, the film is a series of six different stories all centred around revenge and people who have gone past the point of no return.
All of them are acted very well, and some of the scenarios are quite gripping, even when it takes place on the highway! The film also has an unpredictability about it that will have you on the edge of your seat and is one of the reasons it’s such a success.
A satire of Argentine society
The film is a good satire of Argentine society, and while it will make some people uncomfortable, most people won’t be bothered at all! This film has a great cast, and while it might not be perfect, it is a brilliant film that will appeal to various people.
This is a great film with a few flaws that could easily have spoiled it, but as a whole, it is a fantastic satire of Argentine society and the corruption that runs rampant. It is a hilarious and disturbing film that should be seen by everyone, especially those who haven’t watched it before, as it does take some time to get into, but once you have found it, it will be hard to put it down!
A black comedy
Szifron’s film is a riotous black comedy that will surely be a hit with the right audience. It’s a little uneven at times, and the camera framing sometimes feels too cool, but it is always engaging, and there are no political correctness issues that are so common in this kind of production, and if you like your movies dark, dirty, gritty then this one is for you! A dark and hilarious black comedy with a lot of twists and turns that will keep you guessing.
Featuring six different stories
The film features six different stories that all center on revenge and people who have gone past the point that they can’t control themselves anymore. It’s an incredibly funny and original film that is certainly one of the best short films I’ve seen in a long while.
Each story in Wild Tales is very well acted, and it is clear that Damian Szifron took the time to think about each character. This is something you don’t see very often in this genre, and it is a huge credit to him as each character is very real and human.
A film filled with violence
There is a lot of violence in this film as blood is spilled and explosions are ignited, but that does not detract from the film. Rat poison is also used in some of these scenes, but that does not make the film any less funny or interesting to watch.
