Pablo Larrain Double Feature (DVD)
Two films from acclaimed Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larrain in one collection. In TONY MANERO, a middle-aged thug obsessed with the disco king played by John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever splits his time between disco dancing and wreaking mayhem. In POST MORTEM, a morgue clerkâ€™s obsession with a burlesque dancer plays out against the violence of Chileâ€™s 1973 military coup.
As Augusto Pinochet holds Chile in the grip of dictatorship, a fifty year old man obsessed with John Travolta's character from Saturday Night Fever imitates his idol each weekend in a small bar on the outskirts of Santiago. A stinging allegory for the corruption and egomania of Augusto Pinochet. "An indelible portrait of a sociopath with the soul of a zombie." - The New York Times. more info
The second part of director Pablo Larrain's celebrated trilogy about Chile during the dictatorial reign of Augusto Pinochet, POST MORTEM is a "grim, intense, mordantly comic little film" (A.O. Scott, New York Times) about a civil servant transformed by the 1973 military coup. more info
