POST MORTEM (Pablo Larraín, 2010)

Larrain seeks out the most grotesque lives on the fringes of Pinochet's Chile (in this case our blank-faced hero assists at very graphic autopsies) and parses through them for symptoms of the regime's virulence. He shapes his characters and storylines through a singular macabre/nauseating sense of humour that is in equal parts ingenious and stunting.
