One of the more talked about films of this year's SXSW has been Omar Rodriguez Lopez's "Los Chidos." Shocking, violent, funny and made in a style unlike anything else at the festival this year (unlike anything you've probably ever seen), the film is divisive, but its differences are what make it interesting and worth talking about. Using, but also breaking convention, stereotype and tropes, "Los Chidos" is a crazy fable that explores socially ingrained cultural problems like misogyny, abuse and consumption. Not everyone is going to get it, but Rodriguez Lopez doesn't seem worried about scaring off those viewers who don't in order to maintain the clarity of his vision.
