A MONSTER WITH A THOUSAND HEADS REVIEWED
“A Monster with a Thousand Heads” is a dark as hell tale about medical coverage. Honestly, I’m surprised that we haven’t seen this movie before in America. Well, we did and it was called “John Q”. So many are going to be willing to give the film a pass due to its international origins, but look past that. What makes this film different than slightly older Denzel Washington vehicles is how dirty it gets so fast. There’s no sense of pomp to what we see Jana Raluy do in this film. Everything is down, dirty and makes you feel all 74 minutes of the film. I’d recommend a rental or stream.

The Plot Thus Far
When Sonia receives the news that her husband s cancer has progressed to a terminal stage, she races to secure the insurance company approval for the care that can help him. Met with indifference and negligence at every turn, Sonia s desperation triggers a primal survival instinct as a series of increasingly violent confrontations unfold. A sharp, urgent tale of a distraught woman intent on protecting her family at all costs, Rodrigo Plá s latest film is an engrossing combination of thriller, drama and timely socio-political commentary.
