P3Nd3Jo5 is a title that in order to be heard must force its graphic nature and be pronounced “Pendejos”. The music score goes from electronic cumbia to opera, passes through Los Violadores, and stops in a boy that plays his guitar. There are conversations we don’t hear: they become intertitles like in silent cinema, which is also targeted through the iris, a quote to Dreyer’s PASSION DE JEANNE D’ARC, the black & white cinematography, and even the format: 4 wide by 3 high. The skies, the boys, and the streets: Perrone’s usual themes featured in a different aesthetic, with lots of travelling shots in the skateboarding scenes and the walks. P3Nd3Jo5 is a lot of things within Perrone’s cinema: a summa, his longest, most excessive, ambitious, and perhaps visually beautiful film. (Buenos Aires Film Festival)
