Wild Tales (2014)

Damián Szifron directs Ricardo Darín, Érica Rivas and Oscar Martínez in this anthology of extreme behaviour set in Argentina.

Some good unconnected short stories in the Roald Dahl tradition… they very rarely escalate to a point where they outpace the viewers expectations and they lack the knowing playfulness of say, Inside No.9. It zips along nicely and is a solid example of a portmanteau.

  1. This is a great set of shorter films. I’d mark it much higher for the opening story alone. Such a complex, unbelievable but darkly hilarious revenge story. Definitely didn’t help with my fear of flying. The Ricardo Darin one and the extended car chase/fight sequence were also highlights.
