LFF 2016 PREVIEW: LA NOCHE


Something never seen in Argentine cinema... an uncompromising portrait about the death instinct and the pleasure principle
Roger Koza, Con Los Ojos Abiertos

Certain to be one of the most controversial films screening in this year's London Film Festival, actor-turned-filmmaker Edgardo Castro's La Noche will be the 23rd and final screening for me at this year's 60th edition. La Nacion's Diego Batlle commented that 'it leaves the always provocative Gaspar Noe [looking like] Robert Bresson,' which is quite the clarion call for this particular cinephile to purchase a ticket pronto! It fulfils a vital part of my LFF mandate too, as an opportunity to see films from all across the globe which I am unlikely to see again in the near future.
