EXTRATERRESTRIAL (2011) movie review
Extraterrestrial (2011) d. Vigalondo, Nacho (Spain)
From the creator of Timecrimes comes this amusing diversion about a couple (Michelle Jenner, Julian Villagran) waking up after a one night stand unable to remember each other, the night before, or when the hell the giant UFOs showed up around the globe. Following his turn as the “sad clown” in Alex de la Iglesias’ The Last Circus, it seems like character man Carlos Ereces is turning into a hot ticket, having shown up already on the festival circuit in Game of Werewolves and here as the creepy amorous next door neighbor nursing a yen for the luscious Jenner. Very funny comedy that focuses much more on the human interactions than the potential alien threat.
