What makes the movie smart is its refusal to cast Troy, a difficult role well-played by Epino, as strictly a villain. Instead, Mendoza delves into the cycle of violence that can be passed down through generations.

The complex tonal, textural and thematic mix here doesn’t always work, but it’s always interesting and often invigorating.
