ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the film Secuestro Express, directed by Jonathan Jakubowicz. His film is a breakneck-paced, visceral account of the kidnapping of a wealthy young couple by three friends from the violent ghettoes of Caracas. But Secuestro Express' unflattering portrayal of contemporary Venezuela angered the government. And the movie's critics have not resisted attacking his Jewishness. It features a fine performance from the Argentinian actress Mía Maestro.
