  2. Pymo's rating of the film The Untamed

  3. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Untamed

    If you take away all the references to popular culture you're really talking about dangerous masturbation. Like auto-erotic asphyxiation. And yet these people come back changed by something unnamed. Which puts it more in the category of a drug, and an addiction, and how that can spiral out of control.

  5. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film The Untamed

    Slippery and sly, The Untamed boasts some originality. In spite of that, the extra-sensorial extraterrestrial fiction that Escalante tries to sell becomes more subfusc than scary as the film moves forward. (2.5 stars)

  6. Absentia's rating of the film The Untamed

    Escalante si conferma tra i migliori autori contemporanei.

  8. Mirela Dudaş's rating of the film The Untamed

    I'm sure that scene will not get out of my head too easily :)

  9. Francisco's rating of the film The Untamed

  10. María F. Guerrero's rating of the film The Untamed

    Sex is a complicated thing - to some, it's the jail that captures our real selves and desires beyond flesh, to others, it's the freedom needed to escape from the maze we have carelessly created to capture ourselves. Escalante beautifully captures the sadistic nature of humanity when it comes to pleasure.

  11. Nuno Lopes's rating of the film The Untamed

  12. Emma Ikikeiram's rating of the film The Untamed

    A pleasing mix between Von Trier, Van den Berghe and ofcourse Żuławski.

  13. Paolo Simeone's rating of the film The Untamed

    The fact that Escalante went back to shoot an average flat movie is already a news. At least it's not a collection of silly shockers to make this generation's critics, who seem to have never seen a movie until the day before, scream and shout in their chairs at any festival.

  14. Max Seqgar's rating of the film The Untamed

    There's something about them tentacles of yours...

  15. Palmat's rating of the film The Untamed

    Good but uneven movie. The domestic side that deals with sexuality, homophobia and misogyny works well throughout but when coupled with the "alien" things become quite nonsensical. It feels like a riff on Possession and Under The Skin without reaching any sort of clarity really. More like adding weirdness just for the sake of weird. Still a singular experience about repressed desires, sex and death.

  16. VENIMOS LOS JODIMOS Y NOS FUIMOS's rating of the film The Untamed

    Algo que ha brillado por su ausencia en la obra de Amat Escalante, es la originalidad. Si HELI no era otra cosa que una recopilación de conocidas notas rojas en forma de película, ésta cinta se puede considerar un refrito de LA POSESION de Zulawski; no obstante, se trata de uno muy digno, en el que Escalante reflexiona sobre la aterradora idiosincracia y la doble moral ocultas bajo una máscara de normalidad aparente.

  17. Kamran's rating of the film The Untamed

    Relationship drama grounds a parallel narrative of supernatural and spiritual exploration. Neither of these two channels are developed fully, however. 77/100 - Very Good. (3.5)

  19. J0NS's rating of the film The Untamed

  20. Egoisms's rating of the film The Untamed

    Difficult and initially unsatisfying, I haven't stopped thinking about since I saw it 2 weeks ago. A complex exploration of the dark side of sexual desire. The film's biggest credit is that its disturbing central metaphor, and the main draw of the film, plays second fiddle to the subtle, penetrating, brilliantly acted domestic dramas. It's almost a more metaphysical, bleaker, deadpan "A Serious Man". It's brilliant.

  21. redux's rating of the film The Untamed

    The slimy creature from 'Possession' is now fucking Mexicans in a backwood hut. Not a wise career move.

  22. Alex's rating of the film The Untamed

  23. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film The Untamed

    Possession + Japanese hentai (tentacular erotica) + Under the Skin + David Cronenberg. With lots of Mexican spices.The English title is vaguely abominable: they should have kept the original, LA REGIÓN SALVAJE. All things considered, The Untamed is an unforgettable cinematic experience.
