A deconstructed adaptation of Dante’s Inferno, taking place at a bathsalt-fueled fighting ring in Miami’s underworld. More an experience than a narrative, filmmaker Julian Yuri Rodriguez takes us past the thin veneer of civilization to I Sol Tace (where the sun is silent), a place where all our preconceived notions of entertainment and beauty are challenged.
"Mind-bending and voyeuristic... explores and questions what we find engaging and beautiful... The experience is seedy and brutal, with hellish yet celebratory undertones. Dizzying and visionary—almost like Gaspar Noé's "Enter the Void"—this is a freakish carnival of curiosity with death and sex as the stakes...The film is indeed beautiful, with a sweaty, smoky aesthetic... Ultimately Rodriguez has created a near-sensory experience through stunning visuals and his distinct ability to twist a story." -Cool Hunting
"Gritty, grimey, rough and not for the faint of heart." -Film Threat
"C#ckfight is unsettling and dark: Gaspar Noé and Lars von Trier are two obvious influences. But the film also has a distinct look and feel, along with an unexpected sense of strange, only-in-Miami humor - all evidence of a true directorial vision." -Miami Herald
