The debut feature from Spanish wunderkind Alejandro Amenábar (Open Your Eyes, The Others), Tesis is a thriller starring Ana Torrent as Ángela Márquez, a film student who, while researching for a thesis paper on violence in cinema, stumbles upon a snuff film featuring the murder of a former student at the university. Enlisting the help of classmate and violent-movie buff Chema (Fele Martínez), Angela begins an investigation into the crime that leads them to several suspects. One of them is Bosco (Eduardo Noriega), a handsome classmate to whom Angela finds herself attracted, much to the chagrin of Cheme. Tesis was the recipient of seven awards at the 1997 Goya Awards including Best Film. ~ Matthew Tobey, All Movie Guide

too spooky for me by winky July 24, 2002 - 3:11 PM PDT

truth be told, i couldn't even watch the end of this film. it was just too believable, too disturbing for this meek horror neophyte. but the 50 minutes that i did watch were gripping, tense, and unfolding towards an unpredictable, albeit horrific, ending. the occasionally uneven hand in the editing room only added to a sense of gritty authenticity, enhanced by the voyeuristic filming perspectives that make you feel like a participant in this demonic plot: while watching the film, you are placed in the eerie seat of the underground audience that supports snuff films. seriously creepy stuff.
