For his first feature film, Ryan Prows combines the American thriller and its many protagonists with elements of Mexican folklore. A Mexican wrestler anxious to pay tribute to a mythical father figure casts off the shackles of a sordid organ trafficker. He encounters a number of weird characters, such as a young man just out of prison, who doesn’t seem to realise he has a swastika tattooed on his face.

Lowlife has all the attributes of modern pop culture: it conveys the heritage of Tarantino and makes multiple allusions to iconic modern works, such as Breaking Bad. But, at the same time, Prows crafts his own personal tone, plainly surrealistic.
