Herod's Law is beautifully photographed, its imagery glazed with a sepia patina that suggests dust and neglect.
Alczar, who won the Mexican Oscar for his performance, brings a lot of energy to the role, but it's not enough to counterbalance the film's heavy-handed predictability.
Alcazar makes a deft transition from idiot to maniac, serving as an anchor for the broad performances around him.
Accomplished and delightfully subversive.
Funny, evocatively photographed, and vibrantly acted salvo.
Comes off as cartoonish drivel, broadly played and poorly written.
Often heavy-handed and obvious.
Half Preston Sturges and half Sam Peckinpah...though it sometimes takes its swipes with a bludgeon rather than a scalpel, it hits more often than it misses.
To connect with the story, you have to care about the victims or the character who falls from grace and unfortunately, you don't give a hot tamale about either.
Yeah, OK, we know. Absolutely power corrupts absolutely. What else?
Juan arms himself with a rewritten town constitution and a pistol. Kinky sex and ill-gotten dinero shortly follow.
A wonderfully cute and biting political satire.
Starts off with a funny, caustic humour, but the tone changes and wears off, drags, stretches in an unfunny, unsurprising second half. The idea was better than the outcome. Great leading performance.
The first movie I saw in Mexico, a good representation of the corruption of the PRI, yet again something that should be studied before watching the film. Solid satire throughout of the political atmosphere of Mexico post-WWII. Good acting, funny, and also has its fair share of violence.
