Synopsis
Argentinean filmmaker Edgardo Cozarinsky's 2005 feature Night Watch (or Ronda Nocturna) is a searing, scorching character study of Victor (Gonzalo Heredia), a young hustler dealing and pimping on the streets of Buenos Aires, with a calm demeanor that masks a nasty, virulent temper. When a series of external threats -- including an attempted homicide and a broken affair -- rob Victor of his bearings, he must suddenly reassess his values and priorities by taking a long, difficult journey into the dark night of his own soul. Night Watch co-stars Rafael Ferro and Moro Anghileri. Cozarinsky wrote the original script. ~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide

Dark Night of the Soulless by talltale May 14, 2006 - 7:38 AM PDT

From Argentina (and not to be confused with the Russian sci-fi/fantasy film of the same name), NIGHT WATCH follows a very pretty young male prostitute during his night's work/play. Slowly, it becomes clear that all here is not to be perceived as real, since fears and fantasies mingle with life and sex. Along the way, there is an extraneous, full-frontal shower scene that clearly was added to insure that gay audiences get what we paid for (this seems particularly extraneous since all the sex scenes are so discreet).

By morning, the main character is supposed to have gone through his "dark night of the soul." But because he is relatively soulless, or the moviemaker has been unable to open him up (perhaps he did, and there wasn't much there), your reaction is likely to be a shrug. Otherwise the movie is somewhat hot, somewhat interesting, somewhat intelligent--and not quite up to a six-point, better-than-average level.
