The Columbian submission for the Academy Awards, Monos reminds us of Lord of the Flies, and captivates us with its striking baroque aesthetic, otherworldly setting, and ingenious reframing of the war film—one that uses adolescence to insinuate a youthful but elusive dream of peace. A ragtag band of child soldiers occupy a derelict ruin atop a remote mountain where they watch over a “conscripted” milk cow and a kidnapped American engineer, Doctora (Julianne Nicholson). But after an attack forces them to abandon their base, playtime is over for the motley young crew. (Columbia, Argentina, Netherlands, German, Sweden, Uruguay, 2019, 102 Mins, R, English & Spanish | Dir. Alejandro Landes)
