Savages is curious, in that it’s not the sort of film you might associate with the often solemn, politicised pictures of Oliver Stone. In contrast, this is a lively, breezy crime-thriller, buoyed by a sunny tone, some very dark humour, and – a few bland leads aside – some very memorable characters.
With seven shorts directed by seven directors, 7 Days in Havana is less a feature film and more a collection of shorts unified only in celebrating an incredible city. If narrative isn’t really your thing then it’s well worth a look, even if it’s only to check out the beautiful, undulating Cuban women and some equally beautiful shots of Havana, but at over two hours long you’ll find yourself thinking that maybe A Mini-Break in Havana might have done the trick.
