Billed as a “WTF thriller”, director Miguel Llansó’s follow-up to his 2015 debut “Crumbs” is like “The Matrix” on acid, and is already garnering him almost cult status as a genre and subgenre-defying auteur. The plot: CIA Agents Palmer and Gagano (sporting Robert Redford and Richard Pryor paper face masks) are tasked with the mission of destroying a dangerous computer virus called "Soviet Union". They enter the system using VR but the mission turns into a trap; the virus is far more complex than they ever expected and linked to the darkest spheres of power. A crazy, irreverent cinema cocktail of vintage tropes - and an ultimate guilty pleasure for fans of the absurd.
