    I'd thought it's some heist movie with more focus on sex (maybe the poster cover is to be blamed). However, the movie fared extremely well considering my low expectations. The only boring part was "The Voices", but I guess others would like it better in spiritual terms, and telling more about the character and whatnot. I'd not known about the movie more than stated above. I was taken aback when it mentioned, before the end credits start rolling, that it's based on real events, changing a few elements. Although the changes made were major, it couldn't have been this effective without them. Recommended this one which I went for very hesitantly (it was in my watch list for over a year). *P.S. Please mind that I've got used to using the fast forward button, and hence the movies are now less slower to me than they were previously. I'll supposedly not complain about the unwanted scenes so often, I guess.

    I wouldn't say it's the best film because it was dribbling. It's based on a true Argentinian robbery that took place in the 1960s. The story revolved around the relationship of the 2 gay thugs and how one of their heists affected their relationships. It has a visually powerful editing, Hot and erotic would summarise the whole film.

    A movie about waiting. Doesn't sound too interesting, but when you have well written characters, their interactions become action. This is the story of a heist that goes a little awry. The gang must then hideout. This sounds easier than it is, as fingers begin to point at a setup, and a couple begin to drift apart. This whole time waiting becomes a time for the two protagonists to explore and experiment. It soon becomes obvious that money isn't the only thing at stake, but also pride and freedom, and not just the kind of freedom that involves keeping out of jail. The film, like the best crime thrillers, explodes into violence at a shocking speed. It emphasizes the realistic tone. I loved the 60's setting, and the music really captured the period. At times both frustrating and sad, it shows how humans will let their hearts take over, even if that means getting everyone killed/imprisoned and losing a lot of money in the process.

    I really wanted to enjoy this film. Perhaps a portion of why I didnt was because I was tired and therefore didnt completely comprehend some of the intricate details of the storyline. But as a whole, I just found this somewhat boring. The acting was great, cinematically it was also very impressive (I remember there were even specific moments where I noticed specific camera angles or such and was impressed - and i dont usually do that). So perhaps "technically" this movie was amazing, but for me personally on entertainment value - it just didnt do it for me. I did rather enjoy the ending though. The last 15 minutes or so were awesome, but most of the scenes till then just....werent. What did this movie teach me? Always carry a gun.
