A dapper salesman in a Madrid department store (Guillermo Toledo) lives a life of consumerist splendor, parading around in the latest fashions and bedding his beautiful clerks in the furniture department, but after he's passed over for a promotion his resentment draws him into a tangle of criminal intrigue. Spanish cult director Alex de la Iglesia made his name with scruffy black comedies like Mutant Action (about terrorist freaks) and The Day of the Beast (about a trio of oddballs hunting down the Antichrist). This is his most interesting examination yet of human oddity, expanding the theme into a satire of advertising and consumer culture while unreeling a tale of sex, lies, and homicide that recalls classic late-40s noir. In Spanish with subtitles. 105 min.
