News & Interviews for Intacto
Critic Reviews for Intacto
Fresnadillo has something serious to say about the ways in which extravagant chance can distort our perspective and throw us off the path of good sense.
The casting of von Sydow ... is itself Intacto's luckiest stroke.
Nothing if not hip, but its questions are more coffee-shop hypothetical than genuinely profound.
I admired Intacto more than I liked it, for its ingenious construction and the way it keeps a certain chilly distance between its story and the dangers of popular entertainment.
A clever, original thriller that bows to no genre.
Audience Reviews for Intacto
This is a pretty damn good movie, one that takes a while to get into but a really good movie nonetheless. The main problem the movie has is that it spends over half the running time explaining the game without ACTUALLY explaining what the game is. The game is so and so but you really have no idea what it is at any point. Eventually I figured it out on my own what the fucking game really was, and then everything finally fell into place and I could really get into the movie. I don't know if I was just completely and utterly retarded this day or whether the rules of the game were just poorly written. I'd like to think it's a combination of both. But the idea is really good and innovative and the story is presented in a completely believable way, and everything feels more important because of it. There's no goofy shit here and everything that goes on in this world matters. So overall, despite some issues at the beginning, this is a very good movie with an innovative presentation. Definitely an underrated movie.
The interesting premise to this Spanish thriller is that some people are luckier than others, and those with the gift of luck play in a series of secret tournaments where they face off against each other, sometimes for fatal stakes. Max von Sydow, playing a Holocaust survivor, is the luckiest man alive---but can a man who miraculously survived an airplane crash unseat him? The idea of the underground luck circuit, and the strange, ritualistic games they play to determine who among them is the luckiest, is the most interesting thing about it; the rest of the movie is moody, humorless, and distant, and doesn't generate as much suspense as you might hope.
Interesting premise, in which luck is an actual gift that some people possess, who then compete against each other in a series of challenges to determine the luckiest person on earth. At the same time, a wanted criminal is being chased by a cop who possesses this same gift. The games of luck are fun to watch, and there is always the looming question of which of the characters is actually the luckiest. Not a lot of substance beyond the basic premise.
