"Palabras encadenadas" (2003) aka "Killing Words" is an unrecognized neo-noir thriller and crime story. A man (Darío Grandinetti) seeks revenge upon his divorced wife (Goya Toledo) because she lied about him at their divorce hearing a few years ago. He kidnaps her and subjects her to intense psychological pressures, telling her how he has become a serial killer and that he intends to kill her. In the movie's complex time structure, the man-wife duel is developed in flashback while a police investigation is occurring. Police are investigating Toledo's disappearance and bring in Grandinetti for questioning, at which time he doesn't call for a lawyer but provides explanations for their evidence, which is only slight. He doesn't call for a lawyer, preferring to duel and outwit them.
