In his best role to date, John Leguizamo stars as Manolo Bonilla, a Miami-based television reporter in Ecuador whose cameraman shoots the brutal beating of a man who's accidentally killed a young boy with his truck. The reporter realizes he's on to something much bigger when, fearing for his life, the driver starts to divulge details about the murders being committed by a serial killer known as the Monster. Writer-director Sebastian Cordero focuses on the moral implications of Bonilla's decision to try to wrest a confession from the suspected killer in the hopes of breaking a career-making story. The ironic twist at the conclusion of this chilling drama underscores the vagaries of human nature—and of the media. With Leonor Watling, Damian Alcazar, and Jose Maria Yazpik. In Spanish with subtitles. R, 98 min.
