ramosbarajas's rating of the film El infierno

As a black-humor social critique of Mexico, this works very well. The laughs come fast and often, and yet this does not detract from the general effect of this bleak and bloody film. The performances are great, hitting many highs during the film, all the while maintaining an irreverent atmosphere. Despite its running length, the film moves on quickly, with just a few scenes that could have been cut.
