PABLO LARRAÍN TRILOGY: Tony Manero

The first in Pablo Larraín’s multi-award-winning trilogy of films that unconventionally dissects Chile’s troubled past under brutal military dictator Augusto Pinochet, Tony Manero is a disquieting story of a machismo brute (Alfredo Castro) whose morbid obsession with John Travolta’s character in “Saturday Night Fever” sets off his violent tendencies. A Stygian vision of late 1970s Santiago set mainly at night and in dim interiors, Tony Manero intersperses its thematic darkness with flashes of brutal black humour.

Dir. Pablo Larraín / 97 min / 2008 / Chile, Brazil / In Spanish with English subtitles / Rating TBC
