News & Interviews for Wild Tales
Critic Reviews for Wild Tales
While the stories themselves are about the joys of losing control, their creator knows exactly what can be achieved with crafty pacing, masterly editing and a precisely controlled balance between the matter-of-fact and the shamelessly hysterical.
Wild Tales is a riotously entertaining collection of short stories linked by a common theme: people losing their self-control and self-respect.
Wild Tales is a raucously entertaining collection of "six deadly stories of revenge". The brilliance of the film (produced by Pedro Almodóvar) lies in its combination of excess and ordinariness.
Portmanteau films are not that common, or usually successful, but Argentine writer-director Damián Szifron has fashioned a collection of six payback stories with visual flair and a wicked sense of humour.
Audience Reviews for Wild Tales
A hilarious satire that pokes fun at social classes, bureaucracy and the legal system with six wild stories in which the characters face extreme, absurd situations and are taken by insane impulses of violence and revenge in what seems like the best definition of catharsis.
Mild Tales. I was expecting an edge-of-the-seat stuff, but the movie failed to fulfill that expectation. It's quite mediocre and predictable for most of the part. The shock value, which I feel inevitable for such movie, was negligible. The twists are meaningless as they're pretty predictable to be a twist in its real sense, thereby adding to the dissatisfaction. But since the stories, excluding the last one, weren't a drag and overall it was about average (having okay performances, not extremely boring, etc.), I decided to give it such a fine rating.
Wild Tales contends that human beings are merely separated by a thin line between societal norms and raging beasts. These six sagas of revenge highlight this fact. The most successful of which suffuse their bleak takes on life with comedy. Damián Szifrón writes and directs this glossy picture co-produced by Pedro Almodóvar. Stunning cinematography by Javier Juliá gives these dark comedies a picturesque quality that lightens the mood. A memorable score by Gustavo Santaolalla beautifully complements the production. Occasionally the tone gets nasty. There is a delicate balance between comedy and ugliness. It's the twisted humor that redeems these misanthropic sagas. More often than not, the strength of the composition outweighs the occasional lapse. I didn't expect the "Love Theme From Flashdance" to pop up in one segment but its playful moments like that which uplift a gloomy narrative. Those lighthearted touches keep these 6 unexpected tales of retribution consistently entertaining. fastfilmreviews.com
