Tight thriller. Excellent cast. Good suspense. Well worth checking out.
I watched this movie because of Ana Torrent, but I ended up liking it: It's a well-crafted and very engaging thriller dealing with the theme very popular in the 70's, snuff cinema.
My favourite spanish movie, featuring Eduardo Noriega's best performance to date.
Alejandro Amenábar's debut is a nice piece of work.
Una de esas películas de género españolas que nos demuestra que en nuestro país tenemos grandes creadores para el fantástico y el terror. Lástima que los años no han pasado muy bien sobre ellas y a día de hoy su visionado se hace poco menos que tedioso.
Su guión es pobre en los dialogos y no muy brillante en lo argumental. Sus actuaciones son "correctillas", incluso la de un Fele Martinez en buen estado. Y ciertos elementos plásticos como la música lastran un poco la experiencia.
Al filme le resulta complicado desprenderse de ese aire naif que se respira de alguién que está aun calentito después de salir del horno universitario.
Aun así, es un clásico de culto del cine español que se debe ver.
Amenábar manages to create a mood that is both sensuously ravenous, and undeniably bone-chilling -- the terror lies in what is not shown, the tension is elevated by the admittedly clever red-herrings, and no character is easy to trust.
Now this... This is my kind of shit. Need to watch more movies from Spain.
A serviceable thriller that gets extra points for nostalgia of growing up in the 90s. Snuff film craze was going on and the media was beginning its fruitful adventures into more violence on the evening news. Don't look for realism much or you'll drive yourself up the wall with the "but why aren't you calling the police by now?" moments. These people are dumb and on their own Carmen Sandiego fucking Sherlock Holmes adventure and it helps in the twists and turns despite it being fairly obvious the entire time what's going on. About a half hour too long as well but Amenábar has a deft hand in creating good tension in forwarding the plot to its eventful conclusion.
Alejandro Amenabar´s feature debut offered us an interesting history with mystery, violence and death, and some new Spanish actors too. The film ends with the TV presenting the criminals facts to the people, following what Professor Castro said "Give the people what they want". The perfect justification for the "TV rubbish"
Ótimo suspense. E a quarta estrelinha vai para Ana Torrent.
