WILD TALES/ RELATOS SALVAJES (2014)

This Argentine anthology consists of six wild tales of vengeance that are thematically similar but have different narratives. All the tales serve a purpose to the overall theme of the film and they never overstay their welcome. I was hooked from the audacious opening scene of people boarding a plane and noticing that something has gone terribly wrong; if you’ve seen the film you will know what I’m talking about. My favorite tale has to be the road rage bit because it escalates so quickly and it was edge of your seat entertainment. Another standout is the last tale that takes place at a wedding; it starts off cheerful then takes a left turn and becomes the most memorable wedding in a film that I’ve ever seen. This style of film making should be encouraged because in modern cinema people won’t appreciate a movie because it takes too long to build up or most viewers will not have the patience to sit through a thought provoking, slow paced film. Anthologies are the answer to this problem. Avid film watchers will adore this movie while the casual movie goer will be pleasantly surprised. It’s chaotic and consistently funny; it’s not perfect but it’s a wildly entertaining movie. (9.5/10)
