Dogs

83 minutes 2016

Method actor John Leguizamo plunges into character for this brutal Colombian drama (2016), playing a mild-mannered farmer whose crime of passion lands him in a decrepit prison full of scheming convicts and sadistic guards. Slow to adjust—and even slower to realize that his wife and son no longer want anything to do with him—the protagonist eventually learns to protect himself and settle scores on the inside. The film often recalls Jacques Audiard's French feature A Prophet (2009) but without the poetry or mysticism; here, revenge is a dish too cold to be savored. Harold Trompetero directed. In Spanish with subtitles.
