Another commonplace empty “sicario” movie.
“Perro come perro”, a.k.a. “Dog Eat Dog”, has been announced as a groundbreaking feature film in Colombian cinema, mainly for being a participant in Sundance Festival 2008. I even got to read a review saying that it would be the next “Amores Perros” of South America and that it marked a new period for Colombian cinema. As an openminded person who loves cinema, I was very much persuaded of seeing the film for the positive reviews: I definitely expected a whole lot more of what I got to see on the screen. Those propagandistic reviews are the motivation behind this personal commentary.
PCP is seriously flawed in many ways. We may start on the overacting of most of the cast. Now then, if it hadn’t been for the superficial way in which the themes were dealt with, the spectators could have empathised with at least something; but there’s no space for empathy to happen. On the contrary, the supposed seriousness of the main characters’ problems is ludicrous.
The plot in itself is quite straightforward: it’s a film based more on atmospheres than on actions. If the movie fails to portray a plausible atmosphere is because of its overdirecting. Without any relevant plot twists and several obvious elements, it tries to appeal in any available form to the audience, even resulting in ridiculous comic relief situations. The soundtrack (original music) and title sequence seem like made for another kind of movie. The ‘over the top’ post-production (colour correction, editing, sound design) only makes us too aware of the directorial efforts to be innovative. Let’s face it: if you’re going to do “another” Colombian-violence related-gangster film, try at least not to step on the abundant clichés available for the genre. Instead we get to see a handful of badly used cinematic resources within a weak story.
Besides the flaws aforementioned, what I least liked is its thematic emptiness. There are so many pointless situations!! This is made especially annoying with some exaggerated gratuitous violence scenes. All in all, I never got the point of the film (not the story, which is far too simple). What I mean is that it doesn’t really say anything new or interesting about the topic, nor it has a cinematic proposal that would rescue the film from being a commonplace empty gangster-sicario movie, as what it really is.
Is Adela there…?
This sun-baked slice of nihilism from Colombia is a very interesting watch indeed. Although there’s plenty of yelling and gun-waving, there’s also a very ominous feeling about the whole show. Marlon Moreno definitely has presence as the lead, Victor, who must deal with family problems and tries to solve it by stealing money from a dead lackey belonging to his big boss, a snarlingly fun Blas Jaramillo. Holed up in a hotel room with fellow gangster Eusebio (Oscar Borda) Victor waits for the order to find and kill whoever stole the money (himself) and keeps receiving crazy phone calls from a half-mad man looking for a woman named Adela. If this all sounds like fun to you, it is. On top of all that, Eusebio may or may not be “cursed” by a dead man or just going bugnuts crazy. Yes, there’s something for everyone here. The only drawback I can think of is it feels a tad too short and a few of the lead characters aren’t fleshed out enough to truly care for them when the screws are really put to them. There’s plenty of style, however, and you’ll being humming the title theme long after it’s over.
