Genre maestro Álex de la Iglesia, whose My Big Night was last year’s Opening Night Film, returns to the Festival with this wicked little chamber thriller that will keep you on the edge of your stool.
The Bar focuses on a huddle of clients held hostage in their beloved local after an unseen gunman kills one of their peers. With the gunman threatening to liquidate anyone who leaves, the regulars try to determine the rationale behind their being targeted. As they do so, queasy secrets begin seeping out.
With its high-concept, The Bar echoes Hitchcock and Buñuel, not to mention Tony Scott and Larry Cohen. Its distinctive black humor, ingenious characterizations and manic style, however, are 100% pure de la Iglesia.
