    The movie rarely, if ever, feels mechanical. Instead, you may find yourself marveling at the fertility of an imagination that could allow itself to toss so many vivid characters and stories—enough to supply four or five movies — into one generous package.

    Wild Tales represents the work of an exceedingly skillful storyteller.

    Wild Tales rockets along with sleek, amoral charm and a masterful sense of cinematic storytelling; it’s worth noting that one of the producers is Spain’s Pedro Almodóvar.

    It's crisply and cleanly shot throughout, and the filmmaker shows a rare feel for how to not only make comedy land, but also to make it actually feel cinematic too.

    The infectious dark comedy Wild Tales (Relatos salvajes) argues that payback is more satisfying when it’s doled out in fiery, bloody and outrageous doses.

    Damián Szifron’s Wild Tales almost feels too audacious, too crazy, and, in some ways, too slight for the Oscars.

    Revenge may be a dish best served cold, but Argentine writer-director Damián Szifron allows it to sit until it congeals in the dreary six-part anthology Wild Tales.

Several characters throughout become unhinged in the most logical and entertaining ways. Its a movie with highly intelligent people acting in purely emotional ways and everything just feels right. Major kudos to the director for pulling this off. Go see it immediately. Expand

This is one of the best movies EVER made in history. Every story is so well acted and directed in a way that it is impossible not to relate to at least one of them, and to truly understand the pains that each character goes through. It is a movie that deals with very delicate and serious issues, but they are presented in such a predictable manner that it is impossible not to laugh, being a movie that is a perfect tragicomedy.

The characters are interesting and the situations are inventive. Each one of them is creative enough to have been developed into a full-length movie, but the abbreviated length, robust pace and imaginative direction keep make one immensely entertaining. My favorite was the conflict between the Audi driver and the "redneck" (wickedly dark with a delightful ending). Expand

I didn’t like all the “tales”I had read a lot about this film, and even with subtitles it was an extremely enjoyable, fast-paced, funny film. I didn’t like all the “tales” equally, but they all held my interest and made me laugh, regardless of the cruelty inflicted in some of them as people went wildly out of control. The subjects satirized were contemporary and apparently are common to everyone all over the world – and these situations were not as trivial and juvenile as in many American comedies, which seem to be mainly about hangovers and acting stupidly. In this film, people made fools of themselves for good reason, even if, of course, their reactions were just a bit exaggerated. The comic acting was great. Expand

    This movie was an Oscar contender in a foreign language category.
    It is somewhat an unusual tragicomedy, where people die and it's amusing It is a social satire consisting of several unconnected novellas, some are more serious than others.
    Situations are intentionally surreal to underscore the absurdity that we see too often in our lives.
    I would give it another name: "Revenge", because it's all about getting even.
    Good piece of entertainment. In Spanish with English subtitles.
