Official Competition

Official Competition on IMDb

When a billionaire entrepreneur impulsively decides to create an iconic movie, he demands the best. Renowned filmmaker Lola Cuevas is recruited to mastermind this ambitious endeavour. Completing the all-star team are two actors with massive talent but even bigger egos: Hollywood heartthrob Félix Rivero and radical theatre actor Iván Torres. Both are legends, but not exactly best friends.

What we think

Even when Official Competition is lighter on laughs, it’s kept compelling by Cohn and Duprat’s formal ambition.

What others think

It’s a very funny film, sending-up human absurdities without being too mean. Cruz is a talented comedian, but she smartly plays it straight-ish here.
Cath Clarke The Guardian
Relentlessly funny, buoyed by the dangerously committed turns by its very game cast.
David Jenkins Little White Lies
The actors are subtle — Cruz and Banderas can be hilarious with a narrowed eye or a puzzled frown — but the screenplay, co-written by the directors with Andrés Duprat, is nowhere near as sophisticated.
