"Johnny 100 Pesos"
Directed by Gustavo Graef-Marino
Based on a true story,
this is an offbeat, darkly comic thriller of a bungled heist in the tradition of Reservoir
Dogs and Dog Day Afternoon. Johnny Garcia stars as a teenager whose first armed
robbery escalates into a hostage situation when the police surround the building, leaving
no escape for Johnny and his accomplices. The event turns into a media circus focusing on
Johnny as a symbol of what's wrong with the country. Starring Armando Araiza,
Patricia Rivera, Willy Semler, Luis Gnecco. Color. Spanish with English
subtitles. 95 minutes.
