Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Benjamin Naishtat. Argentina/Brazil. 2018, 100 mins. DCP. In Spanish with English subtitles. With Dario Grandinetti, Andrea Frigerio, Alfredo Castro, Diego Cremonesi. In its audacious opening scene, as absurdly funny as it is brutal, a middle-aged lawyer out for a quiet meal is verbally assaulted in a restaurant by a stranger. Violence and mystery escalate quickly, a private detective shows up, and secrets become unearthed in a sleepy, remote town. Set during the period of the Dirty War that followed the fall of Peron, Rojo is a noir-like thriller featuring a Spaghetti-western widescreen canvas and a playfully complex narrative style that meshes perfectly with its darkly satirical view of Argentine society. One of the most talked-about films at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, where it had its world premiere, Rojo confirms its abundantly talented young director as a rising star.
