With Nicolás Pereda in person
Presented in collaboration with Cinema Tropical
Mexico. Dir. Nicolás Pereda. 2012, 103 mins. DCP. With Gabino Rodríguez, Teresa Sánchez, José Rodríguez López, Luis Rodríguez. A restless formalist and one of the most inventive practitioners of the hybrid film, the prolific Pereda casts two of his regular collaborators, Gabino Rodríguez and Sánchez, as son and mother in a domestic drama about a returning prodigal father. But the reality of the film soon starts to slip. An actor is replaced; scenes are repeated with slight variations; worlds collide as actors interact with fictional characters. Both playful and radical, Greatest Hits is one of Pereda’s most emotionally resonant films, and also, as the title suggests, a culminating work.
