Malamor | Chicago Reader

Malamor

Seventeen-year-old Lisa is a lost soul: a heroin addict who talks to her teddy bear, “adopts” a human fetus in a jar, and obsesses about her mother's junkie boyfriend. Director Jorge Echeverri's chronicle of her last ten days of getting high and hanging out strives to equate mental illness with poetry, but its jarring mixture of dreamlike images and gritty realism never quite adds up to anything. In Spanish with subtitles. 93 min.
