Wild Tales

This film reminded me a LOT of the (amazing) tv show Black Mirror.  I thought that it did a fantastic job laying out some really interesting scenarios.  For example, what would happen if two people with road rage really had the unfortunate please of having to meet face-to-face (this is more interesting in our world of people saying terrible things to each other online).  Would everyone be just as brave?  My favorite story was the last one as it spoke to me personally.  I’ve often prided myself in not conforming to the expectations, approvals and traditions of others – I thought that it did a fabulous job of delivering that message.

I don’t mean this to sound like a criticism but I think the stories demanded more thought from the view rather than entertain them.  Probably the best anthology that I’ve seen since The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.
