Extremely gripping thriller about gay persecution in Franco's Spain. Featuring Mexican hottie Alejandro Speitzer and the always superb Carmen Maura (though let's just say that Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown was a LONG time ago).
Anyone Watching "Someone Has To Die" On Netflix?

Carlos Cuevas from Merli !!! <3 <3
Is there a gay sex scene between Cuevas and Speitzer ??

Let's just say we get full rear nudity from the Mexican ballet dancer with the great ass.

The exchange between Carlos Cuevas and Alejandro Speitzer's characters about being with a man was heartbreaking.

You can also see plenty of Alejandro Speitzer 'The Club' and 'Dark Desire.'

Really exited about this. It looks amazing. And it features the who's who of foreign Netflix television drama. Stars from Elite and House of Flowers, for example.

The English dubbing is hammy at best.

Is it in English?

Switch to subtitles, r9. It's easy.

It's in Spanish R10, just put subtitles.
Carmen Maura is such a bitch in this film. The director was gushing all over Alvaro Rico's social media. Maybe he can include Alvaro in his next project.
Issac Hernandez and Carlos Cuevas have beautiful round asses.

Carmen Maura as a psycho bitch matriarch??? Yes, please.

It's beautifully filmed, but depressing as hell. The dancer, Isaac Hernández as Lázaro , is hot and you get a nice view of his ass in the third episode!

Isaac has a great dancer's body, but the face is a bit rough looking. Alejandro is much better looking.

Like another Spanish (Argentinian) gay-themed film Burnt Money, I felt kind of shortchanged when the only sex scene in this show turns out to be heterosexual (unless you count one second of fully clothed imaginative cruising sex). There are some depictions of gay persecution so graphic I felt almost exploitative. And the story line of Carlos Cuevas is heartbreaking.

Seems odd that the gay character would drag his Mexican friend all the way to Spain before knowing that he was gay or straight. Even stranger that the Mexican didn't leave once he tried to kiss him in the car or even before when he saw how messed up his family in Madrid was.

Both interrogation scenes were brutal and the first one was even horrific. And in some parts of the world that's still happening. The scene where the dancer dances for the bully is so beautiful and yet so sad.
Gabino is telling Alonso, when they are in the car together, how he felt about their encounter when they were children, right?

No, R18. Alonso has not had sex with any man. Gabino is telling him the story about his first time with a slightly older boy near his grandparents’ place in the country in, I think, Mexico.

r20. Something must've happened between Gabino and Alonso. Otherwise, why would Alonso be so terrified about Gabino outing him?
|by Anonymous||reply 21||Last Tuesday at 6:40 AM|
Yes, r21. They were in love or at least very close/attracted to each other when they were kids, 10 years before the events in the show. But I don’t think they had sex. In the car, Alonso asks what is it like being with a man. That’s why Gabino explains his first time. It’s a heartbreaking conversation, as someone else said. Gabino at least escaped Franco’s Spain, but Alonso is trapped. He says he tries very hard, every day to stay in the closet, etc.

r22. Thanks. I didn't pick up on that. I thought Alonso was active since he knew at least one cruising spot. But apparently never hooked up after all.

Was hoping to like it more. It came off like a well filmed Mexican soap. The scene with the two men at the end in the car was well written.
|by Anonymous||reply 24||Last Tuesday at 7:16 AM|
R17 I found that a bit odd. Especially how prior to that they are so close even strangers think they are a couple. The scene in the car was very powerful.

r7. Thank you for the recommendation for Dark Desire. I'll give it a try. I'm currently hooked on Spanish movies and TV shows. I just saw Almodovar's Pain and Glory and it was just as beautiful as SHTD.

I hope there's a season 2. This just seems... incomplete. I'm hoping that the last scene where everyone gets shot is a deja vu/flash before your eyes moment for the gay son and he does something to change the sequence of events and at least saves his closeted ex and straight friend.

It's excellent. Shows how class-bound, racist and repressive Franco's Spain was. The boys are cute. And Maura is a perfect Monster Abuela.

Can the person who dies on Netflix be the one who is canceling all my favorite shows? Hopefully with the heat of a thousand suns.

It's very old school, gay themed, European art house movie melodrama. Very well done.

Woman 1: You're always so charming. What a wonderful speech!
Woman 2: And a lovely day. It was cloudier earlier, but it looks like it's improving.
Amparo (Carmen Maura): Yes, it's a lovely day. I hope it's good for you, too.
Woman 2: Indeed.
Amparo: Although you don't look well.
Posing for a group picture.
Amparo: A pity it was captured for posterity.
