Violeta Went to Heaven

Violeta Went to Heaven ★★★

The way this film anchors its decentered, back-and-forth-in-time pseudo-MagicRealist narrative meander to a highly specific, very physical, very *present* evocation of Chilean landscape and human environments reminds me of Leonardo Favio; I liked this a lot. It doesn't quite have the breadth of Favio's imagination at its disposal, though; there are places where it goes a bit flat.
