At its heart, a love story between two lost boys, 'I Promise You Anarchy' manages to be at once chilling and heart-rending. Miguel, from a middle-class family, and Johnny, from a humble barrio, are skateboarders, are best friends and lovers. To finance their lifestyle, they sell their own blood, and those of their gang of skateboarders and acquaintances, to clandestine clinics, until a big delivery job for the mafia goes wrong. Echoing the laid back eroticism of Gus Van Sant at his most playful, with shades of a modern-day neo-noir, this visually arresting film is a sumptuous and occasionally chilling journey into the illicit underbelly of Mexico s capital.
