Dry, characterless, and unrewarding Neo-Noir. Bublani’s film is a France/Georgia co-production and it amazingly won an award at Sundance last year. 13 Tzameti attempts to be a brutal and shocking personal descent into hell, following an underground murder game based in Eastern Europe where the players all have one bullet, line up in a line, and spin the chamber. When each player cocks back the hammer and shoots at the man in front of them, the last man alive wins. The characters remain utterly lifeless so it never really matters who lives or dies. More a concept than a film, which is where “popular” independent film seems to be heading all over the world.
