Alberto Rodríguez’s “El hombre de las mil Caras”

(#21 of 365) Alberto Rodríguez’s “Smoke and Mirrors” is non-exaggerating, a non-dramatizing story about a con man who genuinely describes the story of a man who fooled the entire country. Supported by the performances of the lead cast, the movie holds onto its position as a drama that was wrongly promoted as a crime thriller.
