Violence is his nature; he cannot resist the fascination of committing crimes. A confused and savage soul hidden behind blond curls and angelic blue eyes, Carlitos is the “Death Angel” who feels no remorse over robberies, rapes and murders. In retro fashion resembling the classic style of Almodóvar (the film’s producer), Ortega (Black Box, 28th) dramatizes the real-life story of Argentina’s most infamous serial killer, Carlos Robledo Puch, in an aesthetically glamorized presentation, turning Tarantino’s ultraviolence into an exercise in style.
