Exterminating angel

Carlos Robledo Puch is a classic movie villain – a beautiful young man with an innocent face, a diabolic twinkle in his eye and a complete absence of moral conscience. However, Luis Ortega’s film about this notorious Argentine murderer, robber and kidnapper is no ordinary serial killer movie. Set in early 70’s Buenos Aires, EL ANGEL is a stylish and campy crime caper which is more concerned with capturing the sociopathic world view of its protagonist than with condemning his actions. The result is a deeply subversive film steeped in homoerotic tension.
