Rate this:
MPAA rating: R; for violence, language and brief sexuality.
Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. A lover's betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control.

A little Luis Bunuel, a little Twilight Zone. Not as profound or as professional as it might want to be (some of the stories are predictable, or just end, without having a memorable ending), but still a lot of fun.

this movie was so different. really great film, it was violent in some vignettes but very entertaining regarding retaliating vengeance. I rate it 5 stars *****

Opening vignette was so quick and darkly funny that it caught me off guard in a very good way. But it tended to cloud my interest in the remaining stories as they weren't as good, IMHO, with only story #3 really rising up to that potential. The last story started out strong but eventually went the easy route in resolution. Not all stories are about revenge, but they are about rage at/about subjects most everyone can relate to. I don't think this is a particularly disturbing film, given what is released these days, but it does contain some graphic person-on-person violence. I'm giving it 3 stars.

Too dark and violent for my liking. Did not finish.

Absolutely loved it. Most of these absurdist revenge tales went in surprising directions.

Fresh and creative. I'm glad I saw it without knowing much about it.

Highly recommended.

A dark, laugh-out-loud collection of stories. Slow in a couple spots but worth the watch.

Summary

Add a Summary

Six adult standalone short films united by a common theme of violence, vengeance, and extremes of human behavior. The subtitle on the box explains a lot: "Patience has its limits; we can all lose control." Things change. Stuff happens. And what happens when people cross the line from acceptable to unacceptable behavior? Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar is the executive producer. Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 96% 'fresh' rating, with an average score of 7.9/10, and with the critic consensus being: "Wickedly hilarious and delightfully deranged... a subversive satire that doubles as a uniformly entertaining anthology film."
