El Crimen Perfecto

Spaniard Álex de la Iglesia (Acción Mutante, Día de la Bestia) could be one of the best filmmakers you've never heard of. This fast, viciously funny Spanish/Italian crime comedy follows the adventure of Rafael (Guillermo Toledo), a fast-talking salesman who was literally born in a mall. Our anti-hero works in the women's section of an upscale Madrid department store where he seduces consumers and jockeys for the coveted floor manager position. One wickedly deadly accident later, and Rafael finds himself blackmailed by a Plain Jane saleswoman with love on her mind. Things get progressively uglier from there, leading to increasingly surreal situations--all of them infected with de la Iglesia's trademark brand of madcap horror. In Spanish with English subtitles. 105 minutes
