Nueve reinas

Think Hollywood is the place where caper movies come alive? Far from it – especially if you're looking for a smart caper movie... Okay, I'll grant you this; I haven't heard of a lot of foreign or independent filmmakers doing an exceptional job at a caper flick...

All the more reason why 'Nueve reinas' (Nine Queens) stands out...

Oh and if the plot seems a tad familiar to you... remember this... 'Bluffmaster' came out in 2005... Nueve reinas was released in 2000!

I liked Nine Queens quite a bit (though I enjoyed the director's second and last film, El Aura, a bit more).

Fabián Bielinsky died of a heart attack in 2006 at only 47 years of age.

It's a shame isn't it... losing such a talent...

I've just bought El Aura on DVD, but haven't had the time to watch... but I'm getting a good feeling about my purchase thanks to your comment.

Some of us are (involved in film making)... however all of us... we're passionate about watching films with unique stories/perspectives... although, from the state of our blog, we seem to be working more than watching and exploring film... which isn't necessarily a bad thing... especially for those of us working on film projects...
