News & Interviews for Carancho
Critic Reviews for Carancho
The desolate Edward Hopper nightscapes provide an effective context...
The Argentinean actor Ricardo Darín (The Secret in Their Eyes) has an almost Bogart-like gift for playing world-weary rotters with a core of nobility.
This is a film that's musical with the cracking of bones and crashing of cars.
Carancho begins to accelerate with alarming speed - and doesn't stop until the startling, bitterly ironic final frame.
A no-frills version of a perennial dark story: how love of a sort can take root in a festering place.
A stark, compelling crime drama, shot in lurid close-ups and leading inexorably toward a devastating end.
Audience Reviews for Carancho
A spectacular thriller, gripping, visceral and directed with an intense realism by Trapero, who uses a handheld camera and long takes to simulate a documentary style and keep the audience incredibly tense - and the last scene is fulminating, almost driving the viewers to a heart attack.
Perhaps the fall-spring relationship doesn't quite work but Carrancho is an interesting character sketch of a horrid character. How far will he go to profit at his trade?
Very well done. Interesting storyline. Rather gritty, which always attracks me. I have to say...Ricardo Darin is becoming one of my top favorite Spanish actors. Just about everything I have seen him in I have liked.
