-MOVIE OF THE WEEK- Tony Manero (2008)

This is a smart, unique, provocative and darkly humorous film by Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larrain. The film does not only focus on a man's obsession with John Travolta's character from Saturday Night Fever, but is a reflection of Chile, under the brutal Pinochet regime (a topic in which Pablo Larrain furthermore explores in his other filmographies). At times it makes you smile with its dark humor but do not be fooled, as it is equally tragic and disturbing. This being his second feature film really placed Larrain on the map as to one of the most interesting filmmakers to watch.
