THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER | Callback: Málaga Review

By Jonathan Holland

"Folks who are nostalgic for the days of Henry, when portraits of serial killers were suitably seedy and unpleasant rather than high-gloss and Seven-inspired, will be happy to see that Callback fulfills their requirements to the last sordid letter. Carles Torras’ third feature, and his first in English, is inevitably uncomfortable viewing but also is his most accessible outing to date, basically a minimalist character study of an unhinged wannabe actor for whom the American Dream is showing not the slightest sign of becoming reality."
"Bacigalupo’s squirm-inducing creation of Larry (...) It’s testimony to Bacigalupo’s performance that the residual effects of the pathos which this generates last even after he has started to commit his atrocities."
