A shiny, glossy and slick Argentinian import with the Almodovar bros. as producers, the Un Certain Regard selected El Angel by helmer Luis Ortega flaunts it’s ambiguous and loaded gun unpredictable protagonist as a pretty boy but one ugly personality. Think Natural Born Killers in nature, based on a real-life murderer Lorenzo Ferro makes for an enigmatic center in an overwrought template. We where at the world premiere screening with cast and crew including Luis Ortega, Pedro and Cecilia Roth who plays a matriarch without the faintest idea.
