Matando Cabos

This dark Mexican comedy is a satirical look at a kidnapping gone awry when a couple of incompetent crims accidentally nab the janitor instead of the head honcho. Heavily influenced by Tarantino and the Coen Brothers, it retains a distinctly Latin flavour, taking on a criminal activity that is of plague proportions in Latin and South America and thumbing its nose at the macho thugs who carry out these crimes. Interweaving (and on the whole, vulgar) characters, over-the-top violence and quirky lunacy make this an undemanding and hilarious piece of entertainment.
