Who has never gotten up with the feeling that they should have stayed in bed? One of those days that for whatever reason nothing works out for us, and that little by little they start to get complicated in such a way that you can’t find a way to improve it. Either because you’ve gotten off on the wrong foot, or because you’ve had an evil eye cast on you, or because it’s simply the day that Murphy’s Law becomes reality. Be that as it may, we have all faced, in one way or another, a day when nothing worked out for us. But what if we ran into someone who has a worse day than ours? With a starting point as simple and everyday as a road discussion, “Wild” shows us how a day that starts badly can end horribly badly without even realizing it.
Released in theaters on January 6, it arrives this Friday at Movistar Estrenos Wild, movie directed by Derrick Gone which presents us with a story full of rhythm and violence, in which the viewer witnesses how a person’s life can change in just an instant, almost without realizing it. Taking as references titles such as The devil on wheels, Never play with strangers O A day of fury, the film starring Russell Crowe and Caren Pistorius tells accurately and forcefully, a story that barely gives us a break throughout its ninety minutes.
What if the stranger you honk at is a man about to lose his mind? Russell Crowe he puts himself in the shoes of Tom, a man whose life has ceased to have meaning. In the middle of a mental breakdown, he crosses paths with Rachel (Caren Pistorius), a young mother who is late for work and nervously reproaches Tom with the horn for not moving his car at a traffic light. A simple action that many of us have done at some time (do not hide or look the other way), will be the trigger that will start a dangerous game of cat and mouse in which the expression “Road rage” it will take on a new meaning and will go beyond any limits Rachel has ever imagined.
Savage doesn’t invent anything new, but he doesn’t need it either. The movie written by Carl Ellsworth (Disturbia, The last house on the left) che continues throughout his footage, keeping us glued to the screen, with its frenetic pace and its scenes loaded with violence and tension. Russell Crowe is overwhelming and compelling, playing a man who has lost everything and who does not care about the consequences of his actions. Far are their characters from Maximum Meridio O Jor-El, meeting here with a totally unrecognizable and unrecognizable New Zealand actor. If he already surprised many of us by his interpretation of Roger Alies in the magnificent miniseries The loudest voice (available at Movistar +), in Salvaje he composes a wild character but aware of his actions, with a look that by itself makes your sphincter shrink in fear.
Despite its apparent simplicity, Salvaje manages to surprise us on more than one occasion with more than one script twist, which will make us rethink how everything will end for the antagonist of Russell Crowe, the South African actress Caren Pistorius who, after a television career in Australia and New Zealand, made the leap to cinema with The Light of the Oceans, which we have subsequently seen in Slow West next to Michael Fassbender and in Cargo with Martin Freeman. In the case of Wild, Caren Pistorius plays a single mother who works as a home hairdresser, and who tries to raise her daughter in the best possible way. Traffic and the loss of a job will only be the beginning of your problems, on a day when a green light, the honking of a horn, and the use of certain words will make your shitty day much worse.
Salvaje is a very enjoyable film, thanks above all to its frenetic pace and to a script that manages to surprise us, despite the apparent simplicity of the story.. With an overwhelming Russell Crowe giving life to a totally unhinged character (which comes to the head with the original title of the film), Wild achieves its purpose of keeping us glued to the screen for an hour and a half. Action, violence, frenzied chases and tension make up a film that starts from an unfortunately so everyday premise, such as a traffic light, a horn and a situation that ends up getting out of control. And, is that for better or for worse, reality is stranger than fiction, and Salvaje reminds us of this in a convincing and open way.
