Crimen Ferpecto (Ferpect Crime) (2004)

Film review

Outrageously dark and fun to watch, this off-kilter comedy by Spaniard Alex de la Iglesia is about Toledo, a ladies’ man who accidentally kills his work-rival in a scuffle to become store manager. Subsequently pulled into a blackmail marriage by the least pleasant looking woman, Lourdes, in the department (because she helped dispose of the body), “The Perfect Crime” is a well made film with homages to Hitchcock, and unabashedly anti-consumerism and anti-romantic comedies.

Rating: 7/10
