Smokers Only (Vagón Fumador)

With its languid, mesmerizing atmosphere and its weird nightmare world of color, light and blurry-eyed imagery, this racy Argentine flick feels like a cross between Chungking Express and Requiem for a Dream. Sadly, it's not as good as either of those. First-time writer-director Verónica Chen concentrates on a semi-suicidal singer and a bisexual male prostitute who meet on the streets of Buenos Aires. A dangerous game of love and sex breaks out between the two, but is soon smothered by Chen's too-sleepy, go-nowhere script. 91 minutes
