Long nights and loneliness in the underbelly of Buenos Aires. Shot over four years with non actors, sex workers and creatures of the night. Lived, directed and acted by Edgardo Castro, whose directing remininsces on Pasolini and early Gaspar Noe.
A dizzying, endless and unique way all night setbacks. Sex, drugs and drinks alternate between meeting and encounter, creating a continuous openly, in front of a camera as bold as curious , who dares to cross it all.
Films of this sort should have a warning of extreme gay sex so that people who do not want to watch pornography can avoid ordering it. We switched off as soon as the erect penis was waved in front of our eyes. Why can Cine Paradiso not have a sticker on this sort of film to warn the unsuspecting viewer of what to expect? I am glad I stopped watching and turned on ‘Songs of Praise’ to help me recover from the scenario described above.
