Magallanes ★★★★

[Seen at the 2016 Nashville Film Festival]

Very gritty, well-written character study about a former soldier that gets caught up in a blackmail attempt gone awry.

Excellent performance from Damián Alcázar as the lead. The character journey for Magallanes is a complex one and he nails it at every beat.

Hopefully this gets some traction with U.S. audiences. Well worth your time.
