Aimee Graham & Rosie Perez in Perdita Durango
Rosie Perez - IMDb
I'll get to that in a minute. Then something occurred that caused me to sit up and take notice. No, not the scene where Harley Cross briefly recalls the time he lost his virginity to a rotund woman with an profound pair of sagittally symmetrical indentations on her lower back pound that chaste cock into the ground, you chunky harlot, you I know, that's a weird thing to get excited about it, especially in a movie where James Gandolfini gets hit by a car not once, but twice.
Perdita Durango Rosie Perez is an unscrupulous young woman whose tough childhood has made her self confident and self sufficient. They kidnap a well brought up young couple and begin a hell-raising ride, transporting a cargo of foetuses from the Mexican border to Las Vegas for a Mafia boss. On the way, they beat and seduce their captives, meet double agents, cops, obsessives, murderers, drug runners and others.
Printer Friendly Rosie Perez is pretty goldang talented. Apparently, director Alex De La Iglesia didn't have the sort of dinner-o it takes to get Rosie to unleash her true talents. But he's smart enough not to give her too many lines, saving us the inhuman torture of her squawky voice, which has been scientifically proven to make babies cry.
