Alejandro Landes' third feature, is a survivalist saga set on a remote mountain in Latin America. The film tracks a young group of soldiers and rebels – bearing names like Rambo, Smurf, Bigfoot, Wolf and Boom-Boom – who keep watch over an American hostage, Doctora The teenage commandos perform military training exercises by day and indulge in youthful hedonism by night, an unconventional family bound together under a shadowy force known only as The Organization. After an ambush drives the squadron into the jungle, both the mission and the intricate bonds between the group begin to disintegrate.

An experience at once jagged and lyrical, brutal and beautiful, angry and abstract, scattered and wholly singular.

It is alternately sensuous and scary, thrilling and appalling, with a dark heart of horror at its core.
Mark Kermode, Observer

Monos is one of the year's most extraordinary films. Its feverish visuals rupture any sense of surface realism, creating a disarming, almost surrealist universe where anarchy takes hold.
Maria M. Delgado, Sight And Sound
