police officer Cruz investigates a bizarre case of a headless woman's
body found in a remote region near the Andes Mountains. David - the husband
of Cruz's lover Francisca - becomes the prime suspect and is sent to a
local mental hospital. But David blames the ghastly crime on an inexplicable
and brutal "Monster." Cruz doesn't know if the creature exists
or not, but while investigating more grisly murders take place. Soon,
he stumbles upon a mysterious theory involving geometric landscapes, mountain
motorcyclists and a phrase: Murder Me, Monster.
Argentinean movie won numerous awards at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival,
resulting in International notoriety. Ultimately, it's a love-it-or-hate-it
experience. Rightfully, many critics have called it "The monster
movie that David Lynch would make." While being excessively brutal,
very gory and undeniably misogynistic, the film manages to dwell in metaphors
while finding strength in an allegorical, symbolic foundation. Alejandro
Fadel is a relatively new director who enjoyed a scripwriting career before
taking the big chair. His approach to horror is a combination of the metaphysical
with gender violence and machismo. He strongly benefits from the extraordinary
cinematography of Julián Apezteguia and Manuel Rebella.
