The one word to describe La Soga is visceral. From the opening scenes of familiar Dominican life with the pulsating Palo music in the background, La Soga grabs you by the collar and doesn’t let you go until the closing credits. This movie will make you laugh, it will make you cry but more importantly it will make you think. There is a scene earlier on in the movie, where a time-lapse slaughter of a pig takes place. You see everything from the initial kill, to the removal of the pig’s hair as well as the gutting out of its innards. To say this movie is violent is an understatement. But it is not gratuitous violence. It is violence that illuminates and illustrates the realities of everyday existence for many of the inhabitants of this picturesque but troubled island nation.
