GIBSONS December 14
Argentina/Spain 2015, 122 min, comedy/drama.
Director: Damián Szifrón
Spanish with English subtitles.
A splendidly anarchic portrait of a world on the verge of a nervous breakdown fired by the undeniable pleasure of losing control. It is composed of six stand alone shorts of black, comic, nightmare united by a common theme of violence and unsuppressed rage. A collection of delicious, horrible, scary and scabrous stories from Argentina satirizing the country’s corruption, cynicism and complacency—wickedly hilarious and delightfully deranged.
"These tales sprang from the most unrestrained corners of the imagination. While I was working to develop other projects – often dispirited by the fact that they were impossible to realize – I began writing a series of short stories to vent my frustrations. When I put them together in one volume, I realized that they were connected by a series of themes that provided unity and coherence: they were all about catharsis, vengeance and destruction. And the undeniable pleasure of losing control.
