Wild Tales Review

By Andrew & Bernadette on June 10, 2015

Wild Tales was a relatively surprising nominee for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 2015 Oscars. Directed by Damián Szifron and co-produced by Pedro Almodóvar the film presents six standalone films, all simmering with themes of revenge, distress and moral depravity, delivering moments of tangible humanity and the blackest of comedy.

Our expectations were high going into the screening of Wild Tales and while I found myself enjoying the experience from beginning to end, relishing in my dark laughs and the cackles of others at the screening, the film has a noticeable dip in quality during the middle films. Thankfully the film ends with a bang, perhaps an argument can be made that the final short contains one of the best weddings ever depicted on the big screen.

Andrew has been a film lover all of his life. For a while now he’s been talking about how great films are and usually that’s been directly to his wife, Bernadette. Now with AB Film Review everyone else in the world can listen to what Andrew has to say to his wife.

Bernadette grew up renting videos from a Plains Video. She mostly hired out Cry Baby and wore the tape thin learning the lines to the John Waters classic. After a series of arguments in the car ride home with her husband, Andrew, the two decided to record their arguments and launch them into the world for everyone to listen to.
