LOVE ME NOT
A mysterious man is held in a maximum-security prison on a desert military base — for announcing his foreboding prophecies. Salome, the daughter of the base's corrupt commander, becomes obsessed with him. Set amid a war in the Middle East, this farce tells the biblical story of Salome and John the Baptist in a modern, surreal way. This film shines with its excellent cast, which includes cult favorite Lola Dueñas from Pedro Almodóvar's films.
