A Family Submerged (2018)

This Argentine drama is an unwieldy arthouse film that drove people out of my screening. The film has not much to say but takes an unnecessarily long time to say it. There are very good performances and a number of interesting elements here, but as a whole this film does not work.

The Other Side of the Street (2004)

The Other Side of the Street [O Outro Lado da Rua] tells the story of a criminal investigation of sorts, but it really is just the portrait of a lonely and bitter woman who is trapped in her isolated existence. Great performances by the core cast do not really help to make this film as a whole work.

Los Perros (2017)

Los Perros is a drama that deals with Chile’s contemporary society; and the question to what degree this country’s violent past is still hidden. More precisely, it asks to what degree people have an interest in keeping it hidden. But watching this film you also begin to wonder if dragging everything into the light is really all that beneficial.
