Is there ever such a thing as too much Diego and Gael? Obviously not. And as nice as it is to see our boys together again in Carlos Cuaron's Rudo y Cursi, it’s also cool to see what they can do apart.
From the producers of Amores Perros comes the stylized crime caper Nicotina, new on DVD from Lionsgate today. Lolo (Diego Luna) is a computer hacker who teams up with two amateur criminals in a deal with a Russian mobster involving the exchange of diamonds for computer access to Swiss bank accounts. But Lolo's obsession with a woman threatens to blow the entire deal. Though its U.S. DVD release got delayed, Nicotina is a Guy Ritchie–esque thrill ride that is definitely worthy of your time. Mexico certainly thought so: In 2003, it was the highest-grossing flick in Luna's home country.
