Amores Perros is a Mexican drama film written and directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu and starring Emilio Echevarría, Gael García Bernal, Goya Toledo, and Vanessa Bauche. The film follows three intersecting stories involving dogs, love, and violence in Mexico City amid the beginning of the 21st century. The first story involves Octavio (García Bernal) who is desperately in love with his brother's wife, Susana (Bauche), but must face the consequences when his brother Ramiro (Echevarría) discovers his affair. The second story follows Daniel (Álvaro Guerrero), a struggling magazine editor, who is trying to make ends meet by training his dog Cofi in underground dogfights. The third story follows Valeria (Toledo), a fashion model, and her philandering husband who crash their car, leaving Valeria severely injured and her husband dead, and her dog missing. The stories are all connected by their shared theme of love and violence, and the final act of the film brings the disparate stories together in a shocking conclusion.

3 out of 4 stars

From Ted Kotcheff, starring Donald Pleasence, Gary Bond, Chips Rafferty, Sylvia Kay
Rated R

Wake in Fright is a 1971 Australian psychological thriller directed by Ted Kotcheff. The film follows John Grant (Gary Bond), a schoolteacher from Sydney, who finds himself stranded in the isolated town of Bundanyabba in the Outback. His plans to return home for the holidays are thwarted when he is coerced into participating in a two-day drinking binge with the locals. As the days drag on and the drinking continues, his behavior becomes increasingly reckless and dangerous, leading him to the brink of disaster. The film paints an unflinching portrait of a man pushed to the brink of insanity by his own worst impulses and an unforgiving environment. Though it was initially met with critical and commercial indifference, Wake in Fright has since become an acclaimed cult classic, praised for its unflinching realism and its exploration of man’s capacity for self-destruction.

Funny Games (1997)

Funny Games
★★★★
★★★★
3 out of 4 stars

From Michael Haneke, starring Susanne Lothar, Ulrich Mühe, Arno Frisch, Frank Giering
Rated Not Rated

Funny Games is a 1997 psychological horror film written and directed by Michael Haneke. It tells the story of a family of three—George (Ulrich Mühe), Ann (Susanne Lothar) and their son Georgie (Stefan Clapczynski)—who are taken hostage by two mysterious young men, Peter (Frank Giering) and Paul (Arno Frisch). The two men torture and terrorize the family, playing a series of sadistic "games" for their own amusement. As the family attempts to escape their captors, the tension mounts and the psychological implications become more and more devastating. The film is a critique on the audience's complicity in violence, as well as a contemplation of the naïveté of modern society in believing it can be protected from violence.
