One of the pleasures of still having the option of arthouse theaters is the opportunity to discover a movie like "Rojo..." it's worth seeing on a big screen to bask in its atmosphere and admire [Benjamín] Naishtat's compositions.

Naishtat distracts the viewer with subplots that may be irrelevant but contribute to a fevered tension that makes this the strongest of the festival titles we previewed.

The way the story dilates the fit of the pieces of its narrative puzzle sow false clues that amplify the strength of that final look on a world where decency has been kidnapped. [Full Review in Spanish]
