Jaime Rosales, The Extraordinary Ordinary


Based on the true story of two Spanish police officers killed by suspected Basque separatists in France, Jaime Rosales’ Tiro En La Cabeza is a fascinating experiment in film making.

Our take

This second part of our Jaime Rosales series boldly reframes Spanish political cinema by tackling an endemic terrorist conflict with striking formal rigor and urgency. Shot in its entirety from a distance, this chilling exercise in voyeurism dissects the act of looking and the act of killing.
