    The Soft Skin

    ★★★★★

    I tell people my favorite movie of all time is “The Soft Skin” and they’re rather surprised by it or confused since they either don’t know what the movie is or think liking this movie that much is inferior compared to the other works of director Francois Truffaut (which I also enjoy very much).

    Not the first of its kind, but a defining & epic title of the Spanish Quinqui genre. 

    Navajeros (released in Mexico as “Dulces Navajas”) tells the life & death of real-life Spaniard criminal called “El Jaro” who has a long rap sheet. El Jaro and his gang little by little gain notoriety by robbing & assaulting people and even when it feels like the end of El Jaro by getting locked up, he manages to escape and continuing this audacious lifestyle.

    Navajeros is intriguing…
