Wild Tales (2014). Written and directed by Damián Szifron. The film starts on a plane mid-flight. Two of the passengers get talking and discover they both know a young man called Pasternak. A passenger behind them pipes up that he also knows Pasternark, followed by another passenger. Wild Tales is a mixed bag of a film, somewhat in the vein of Tales of the Unexpected. There are six short stories, including the very short story at the start of the film. For me, none of the stories are particularly mind-blowing; some are fun, some are rather predictable, and some are just odd (and not really in a good way). It feels like the general trend is downhill during the film. Certainly the acting, direction, and cinematography are all competent. The CGI is average, but it is a low budget film. If you're a fan of short story films and stuck for something to watch, then it's worth a punt I think. 3/5 (Average)
