El bonaerense | Chicago Reader

El bonaerense

Pablo Trapero's first feature, Crane World (1999), marked a turning point in Argentinean cinema, proving that the new generation of filmmakers could dispense with a tradition of verbose dramas and cheap comedies. His second tells the story of a locksmith who leaves his small village to serve in the bonaerense, one of the most corrupt and dangerous police forces on the planet, and plunges into a world of barely disguised darkness, chaos, and madness. Trapero, who's remarkably skilled at treating the extraordinary in a realistic way, creates a powerful portrait of everyday life in Argentina in which despair runs deep and sex provides the only relief. In Spanish with subtitles. 92 min.
