  • Life Kills Me

    2007. Chile. Directed by Sebastián Silva. With Gabriel Díaz, Amparo Noguera, Diego Muñoz. Life and death come wrapped in a mutual embrace in this absurd, poignant comedy about an unlikely friendship between a morbidly obsessed drifter and a grieving young cinematographer at work on a seriously schlocky low-budget horror film—scenes from which constitute the only color sequences in this intentionally gray-toned homage to melancholy and rebirth. Reveling in a blend of sardonic humor and loving characterization, Silva (The Maid, 2009) displays a sure, discerning style in this compassionate vision of frail, unforgettable lives. In Spanish; English subtitles. 81 min.
