Unnecessary sexual sci-fi endeavor
8 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Palm Spring International Film Festival. Acclaimed Barcelona director Amat Escalante (Heli - 2013 Cannes Best Director) leaps off into the sexual sci-fi world presenting a Mexican family (Alejandra - Ruth Ramos and Angel - Jesus Meza) who are embroiled in a boring and abusive relationship, while he secretly has a sexual relationship with her brother Fabián (Eden Villavicencio). If that's not enough, sexually deprived outsider Veronica ( Simone Bucio) is having the best sex of her deprived life and she's ready to share. If Escalante is banking on his 2013 Cannes win to get an audience, followers may have a rude awaking. While the story (written by Escalante and Gibrán Portela) between husband, wife and brother are solid, and the locations and the cinematography by Manuel Alberto Claro work, introducing Veronica, the alien (who's arrival really isn't established) and the alien back wood's keepers is just silly. "The Untamed" is little more than a sexual voyeur's (Escalante's) paradise of the far-fetched semi-sci-fi kind. #psiff2017
