Panthergirl's Pick of the Week: The Perfect Crime

Hilarious black comedy, sort of reminded me of "Eating Raoul", another favorite of mine. The Netflix description is as follows:

"Alex de la Iglesia's hilarious crime caper stars Guillermo Toledo as Rafael, a typical Don Juan who enjoys his cushy job as a department store salesman and usually has his pick of the comely female staff. But when his bitter rivalry with co-worker Antonio ends in murder, Rafael must find an alibi -- fast. Lourdes, the one salesgirl Rafael has hitherto spurned, comes to his aid, but at a price; before long, prison seems distinctly appealing. ..."

Unrated, with subtitles. Definitely not for the kiddies.
