In the spotlight

“We Are the Flesh,” “Bleak Street”: The work of Mexico’s best-known directors can be pretty wild. Think of “The Revenant,” or “Children of Men” or “Pan’s Labyrinth.” So can you imagine what the country’s more underground filmmakers are up to? No, you can’t. Here are a couple of examples to prove it.

In the dystopian nightmare “We Are the Flesh” (Arrow Video Blu-ray and DVD), a brother and sister find shelter with a crazy hermit, who puts them to work building a strange cavelike structure while he vents crackpot philosophy and urges them to have sex. Explicit and gross.

Also dark and grimy is director Arturo Ripstein’s remarkable “Bleak Street” (Kino Lorber DVD), which spends a few days and nights in Mexico City’s lower depths. Its focus is two aging prostitutes who can neither compete with younger women nor stop working, and twin mini masked wrestlers who toil in the shadows of the star luchadores whom they serve as mascots. What happens when they cross paths is unbelievable, even if it’s based on truth.

“Allied”: As suspenseful and emotional as “Allied” is, the plot of this World War II thriller could be fuller. Husband-and-wife spies Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard met doing dangerous undercover work in Nazi-occupied France. After they marry, she falls under suspicion of being a double agent, and he works to exonerate her. So what you’ll remember most are director Robert Zemeckis’ boffo set pieces, including a torrid love scene in the middle of a sandstorm and a scenes of life — a woman giving birth, friends partying — during the Blitz.

Also: “Doctor Strange,” “Moonlight,” “Rules Don’t Apply”
