We gave it a B
Ex-cartoonist/Almodóvar acolyte Àlex de la Iglesia smoothly orchestrates The Perfect Crime, raucous black comedy about an ambitious salesman (Toledo) who accidently offs a rival. Toledo attractively boomerangs from macho to vulnerable; Cervera (20 Centimeters), as an ”ugly” colleague who makes his life miserable, spars with screwball spunk. Snappy, but not as sharp as it thinks it is.
EXTRAS De la Iglesia and co-writer Jorge Guerricaechevarría ruminate on Kubrick and Buñuel (an obvious influence) in their wry commentary.
