La Barracuda is one of the promising, yet ultimately disappointing movies of IFFBoston. It cannot seem to decide what genre it belongs in. Jason Cortlund and Julia Halperin’s film is partially country music tribute, partially family drama, and partially psycho-stalker thriller. In trying to encompass all of these elements, the film fails to cohere. This is disappointing because the premise is compelling and the style intriguingly macabre.
