THE BAR
EL BAR
2017, Film Factory, 102 min, Spain/Argentina, Dir: Álex de la Iglesia
Director Álex de la Iglesia (DAY OF THE BEAST, WITCHING & BITCHING) makes a welcome return with this psychological thriller spiked with black humor. After a patron is killed by an unknown shooter while attempting to leave a Madrid bar, the remaining customers (among them Blanca Suárez, Mario Casas and Carmen Machi) hunker down — and ultimately turn on one another while trying to figure out how to survive and escape.

A STROKE OF LUCK
VILLAVICIOSA DE AL LADO
2016, Film Sharks, 90 min, Spain, Dir: Nacho G. Velilla
Inspired by actual events, this delightful comedy is one of Spain’s biggest box office hits of the year. The small town of Villaviciosa de al Lado is teetering on bankruptcy when salvation arrives in the form of a huge lottery prize and the accompanying national attention. Unfortunately, the winning ticket was sold at the local brothel, and the group of men who bought it must concoct a scheme to keep the secret from their wives while claiming the cash.
