Description

A surreally entertaining neo-noir based on a true crime that shocked Mexico, Arturo Ripstein's Bleak Street tracks an ill-fated encounter between two desperate old prostitutes and twin mini-luchadores. The Mexico City they traverse during their nocturnal adventures is a grotesque carnival of crime, loneliness, and poverty. All these characters can do is journey ever deeper into the night, with no escape in sight, until fate brings them all together. (2015, 99 min, digital)
