La noche

Directed by Edgardo Castro
Argentina, 2016


A vertiginous, infinite and unique walk through every nighttime setback. Sex, drugs and drinking alternate between encounter and encounter, creating a above-board follow-on in front of a camera as curious as it is audacious, that dares to cover everything.

What are people saying?

  • El Biffo's rating of the film La noche

    Neo-Realist Queer sex/drugs film is a bit too real to be erotic but too fake/contrived to be a home movie.

  • José Neves's rating of the film La noche

    Digital. There is a redundancy that is fatal to this movie: its desperate search for despair that generates a formal "everything goes" without nuances or breaths, results in an accumulation (of) effect(s) that annoys and it will not be the sex moments filmed directly that will make me to substantiate a positive appreciation- in this subject compare it with the 1st act of the recent "Theo et Hugo dans le Même Bateau".

  • Lucas Granero's rating of the film La noche

    Damos vueltas en la noche y somos consumidos por el fuego diría Debord. Viaje hacia el fin de la noche diría Cèline. Las giras nocturnas que Castro realiza y ejecuta en su película están en sintonía con las de aquellos escritores pero hay aquí algo que se ausenta de todas ellas: la presencia de un cuerpo que se entrega, uno que pesa y que jamás deja de buscar, perdido en la oscuridad, ese contacto vital con el otro.

  • Maribou's rating of the film La noche

    A grim, unrelenting odyssey following a gay man through Buenos Aires on his quest for sex & escape through a forlorn world of trans sex workers, their clients, cocaine & alcohol. Everyone gets used in pursuit of the next high. The realism is brutal & the pacing excruciatingly slow: sex has never been less erotic; the shirt-shopping scene nearly killed me with boredom. A tough film to sit through but it stays with you
