Monos

R, 102 minutes / Cast: Julianne Nicholson, Moises Arias, Sofia Buenaventura

5/5 (1)

"Monos," the third feature from Alejandro Landes, is a breathtaking survivalist saga set on a remote mountain in Latin America. The film tracks a young group of soldiers and rebels (bearing names like Rambo, Smurf, Bigfoot, Wolf and Boom-Boom) who keep watch over an American hostage, Doctora (Julianne Nicholson). Performing military exercises by day and living everyday teenage lives by night, the young commandos form an unconventional family -- but when an ambush drives them into the jungle, both their bonds and their mission begin to disintegrate.

With a rapturous score by Mica Levi ("Under the Skin," "Jackie"), "Monos" examines the chaos and absurdity of war from the unique perspective of adolescence, recalling "Lord of the Flies" and "Beau Travail" in a way that feels wholly original. Landes brings a diverse young cast of both seasoned professionals and untrained amateurs into an unforgiving, irrational and often surreal environment where anything can happen — even peace.

"A towering filmic achievement, 'Monos' pulsates like an inescapable vivid trance, cosmic and terrestrial at once, fantastical and violently stark, about victims and victimizers." --Los Angeles Times
