In director Adrián García Bogliano's stylish if uneven thriller, Cold Sweat, a lovesick Argentinean (Facundo Espinosa) discovers that crazed geezers are holding his girlfriend captive. The movie is a commentary on the atrocities committed by the military junta of the '70s and '80s — and an excuse to have actress Camila Velasco undress really slowly because her clothes are covered in liquid dynamite. B.
