Intriguing and ambitious, if rather messy, political parable in three parts. Hugely popular singer Pachito Rex is going for the presidency, but is shot at a rally - and the rest of the film charts the consequences of that act for the alleged murderer, the investigating cop, and the architect of his mausoleum. It's a film about demagogy, democracy, corruption, compromise and despair, yet doesn't find anything very coherent to say about any of them. That aside, low budget digital technology is effectively used in an imaginative evocation of the the future.
