The Sentimental Engine Slayer
Omar Rodriguez Lopez, Tatiana Velazquez, Nomar Rizo, Rikardo Rodriguez Lopez, Kim Stodel / Fiction / Spanish, English
Omar Rodriguez Lopez, leader of progressive rockers The Mars Volta, turns filmmaker.
In a hazy, fractured world of model cars, prostitutes and junkies, an insecure young man grapples with his identity. As a director, Lopez employs the same creative daring he displays as a musician. Completely abandoning the linear, he boldly delivers a jigsaw of characters, scenes and emotions that gradually revel enigmatic depths.
