| Original Score: A
directors Stoll and Rebella have taken a potentially farcical triangle and built from it a bleak meditation on twilit lives and lost opportunities.
This low-key tale, by sophomore Uruguayan filmmakers Juan Pablo Rebella and Pablo Stoll, takes its wry look at the lives of three average people with a straight face.
| Original Score: B
The filmmakers are incredibly adept at relaying so very much almost imperceptibly.
| Original Score: B+
Bonedry but deeply involving film about marginal characters in Montevideo, Uruguay
Takes a wry and observant look at human interaction. And along the way it subtly pokes fun at the machismo in Latino society.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
The film's measured pace may put off impatient viewers, but the brilliantly underplayed ending is worth the wait.
A fine film of few words and very little motion.
| Original Score: 3/4
A deadpan comedy shot through with a vein of despair, the Uruguayan film Whisky is a pint-size pleasure.
This is a truly great film.
| Original Score: 5/5
With its intentional pacing and spare but precise dialogue, Whisky works up a unique mood that's languorous yet exhilarating.
Whisky es la confirmación de que el cine uruguayo puede dejar de soñar en hacer, algún día, una gran película, porque ya la ha hecho.
| Original Score: high +1 out of -4..+4
| Original Score: 7/10
