It has been said and written many times that The Wild Ones is an ambitious film. And it is, because in its complexity we can hint –and celebrate– a will to include cinema as a whole, and to devour it. This which in a few words sounds so vague, becomes something deliberate if you do the exercise of choosing any random shot out of the film’s 130 minutes. Alejandro Fadel starts with a western’s iconography and later uses throughout his journey a series of elements that run through different genres, tones, forms, and references. And the film’s success lies in the fact that it dismisses so much information, turns adventure into a contemplative experience, develops and embodies so many characters –stating on the way the relation between man and nature–, and even plays with realism only to dare breaking it in the slippery terrain of mysticism without the film losing any cohesion because of that. This huge, brave, and impressive bet makes Fadel’s first film something different from any other film produced in Argentine cinema.
