High up in the mountains somewhere in Latin America, a group of teenage commandos hold a prisoner of war hostage in Monos, a gorgeously shot, haunting look at human nature at its fraying edges. None of these children necessarily want to be child rebel soldiers— but this is the life they've been indoctrinated into, and Monos shows the power and danger of mind control and group mentality, especially on youth. The score by Mica Levi ("Jackie," "Under the Skin") heightens what is already a tense mood, and cinematographer Jasper Wolf captures some arresting images.—The Detroit News
