Marble Kombat!

You know how when you hang out with a bunch of foreigners, it can sometimes be hard to tell if they’re joking, so you just kind of laugh nervously and try to pick up on body language? That’s how I feel about this trailer for a 2003 Mexican movie about underground marble battles.

Talk about un lugar fantastico. I actually think this might be the most amazing movie ever made. The keyword tags on IMDB are “Bar, Absent Father, Broken Glass, Child Hero, Coming Of Age”. Apparently there are no keyword tags on IMDB for “Marble Wars” or “Hitting Jars Of Marbles With A Stick” or “Drug Dealers But For Marbles” or “Illegal Fight Clubs But For Marbles.”
