Burnt Money

Three Argentinean killers, two of them lovers (Eduardo Noriega and Leonardo Sbaraglia), hide out in Uruguay after a bank heist with a heavy body count and wait for false passports. Under the strain, things start to come apart. Marcelo PiƱeyro’s slick, homoerotic thriller, set in 1965, aims to be as hot as possible, and some might feel it succeeds, but I was reminded of commercials for cologne. In Spanish with subtitles. 125 min. (JR)
