There are no talking foxes in Amat Escalante’s latest whatist, but chaos still reigns.
And though “La región salvaje” translates literally as “The Wilds,” one struggles to imagine a more fitting title for this surreal erotic thriller than “The Untamed.” The Mexican auteur, who last divided audiences with the punishing “Heli” (for which he won Best Director at Cannes), takes a cue from Andrzej Żuławski’s “Possession” in his tentacled pulse-pounder about the pain and pleasure of love in all its forms. This is the kind of experience that might tell you more about yourself as both a viewer and a person than you’re comfortable knowing.
The film’s deeds make good on such words, with brief glimpses of the pleasure-giving entity raising more than just eyebrows. This force is described as primitive, but really it’s a kind of longing, both sexual and romantic, for the sort of intimacy that can only be found among friends and family. Once it wraps its tentacles around you, “The Untamed” doesn’t let go — and you might not want it to.
She came in touch with mixing in 2016, music and electronic media had always been topics in her life.
She has been attending music school for 9 years, playing mostly violin and piano. But since she was exposed to electronic music, this influenced her decision to continue on the path of music but through mixing. Koúkla is inspired to capture electronic world music, where she combines endless blends of tech-house, progressive house and mind-altering oriental tones with a pinch of acid.
Her sets are an exchange of melodic phrases that blur the lines between genres and allow its blend of synthetic, electronic and organic sounds to fill up any room.
