El Leyton Reviews

Not only in its plot, but also in its male rivalry does El Leyton seem like Harold Pinter's Betrayal set by the sea.

Even with all the flaws in the characters (and the filmmaking), we become intrigued.

The story unfolds like a particularly juicy bit of small-town gossip, one that's told by a particularly vivid storyteller.

A sloppy but stylistically incendiary handling of mystery, thriller, suspense, doldrums-of-domestic-romance and labour fraternity tropes.

Director Gonzalo Justiniano beautifully captures the fishing village but never quite captures the story.

El Leyton never rises above the level of a soap opera, although the steamy sex and Lo's abundant nudity might make it worthwhile for some viewers.

Does a fine job of building up a sense of dread as its adulterous relationship gathers steam. So it's all the more disappointing when the movie ultimately collapses.

Too bad the acting is uneven. And the ineptly done English subtitles will have you laughing in all the wrong places.
