New Starburst review. El Gigante is a short film full of brutal violence and grindhouse gore directed by an awesome Mexican girl named Gigi Saul Guerrero, who I will be interviewing at some point, hopefully in the not too distant future.
Like thousands of desperate Mexicans, all Armando wants is to start a new life in America. After a coyote fleeces him to take his wife and daughter over the border, he is left with no money to pay for his own passage. Lost in the desolation of the desert borderlands, what appears to be salvation ends up an agonising mauling at the hands of the monstrous luchador El Gigante. Read the rest here.
