In my opinion El Desconocido is one of the most impressive films. The term 'Best' is as you know a relative term. What you or I consider as the best may not even be in someone else's list. So the general rule is to proclaim the one which majority of the folks like as the best. Nevertheless, according to me the following can be regarded as some of the finest movie ever made. It’s not surprising that Dani De La Torre can produce a good film from nothing. El Desconocido is the only movie I saw full, more than once. Everytime I watch El Desconocido movie online, I'm really enjoying the music, it is just pure soul of this movie. I can't say that I'm a big fan of Thriller, but I liked it!. Now, watch and enjoy :).... Show more
