What's happening lately with genre films in Latin America? 

Our contributing writers in Chile, Peru, and Mexico tell us about, respectively: (1) a new comedy that bears more than a passing resemblance to a Wes Anderson joint; (2) a gritty thriller in which Carlos Alcántara explores his dark side -- we've got the trailer; (3) one of the best Mexican films in recent memory -- we've got two clips to back that up. Click through the gallery below to cast your eyes upon the photos, posters, clips, and words. 

Jaime Grijalba Gomez, Ernesto Zelaya Miñano and Eric Ortiz Garcia contributed to this story.

Chile's Wes Anderson?
Reporting By Jaime Grijalba Gomez in Chile

El Incontrolable Mundo del Azar (aka The Uncontrollable World of Chance) looks like Wes Anderson, but it's three stories about three characters' encounters with chance. Fernando Lasalvia wrote and directed; it's his feature debut. Rodrigo Lisboa, Rafael Janssen, Elisa Zulueta, Fernando Larraín, Nissim Sharim, and Maria Elena Duvauchelle star in the comedy.

A synopsis posted at IMDb states: "Three episodes with surrealistic comedy elements compose No Control in a Random World. A Chilean kid who speaks only in German language; a man fighting with his mind about their way of living; and an old couple trying to solve a problem in silence, an uncomfortable and violent silence are the main elements of this film about how humans have no control in their decisions and how they easily accept all life mutations, even if they are the weirdest ones."

Watch the trailer below. The film opens in Chile on Thursday, June 26. More information is available at the official Facebook page. Click through to see more photos from the movie.
