El Sicario, Room 164
Gianfranco Rosi
2010 - France/Italie - Couleur - 80'

In a motel room, at the US-Mexican border, a "sicario" sits in a chair, his face hidden by a black veil. A "sicario" is a hit man. This one had a poor childhood, he kills for drug organizations and for the government. Today, he expects to die but first, he seeks to recount his twenty years of kidnapping, torture and murder. This film is his confession based on the essay The Sicario written by Charles Bowden published in 2009 in Harper's Magazine.
