boring and then eh
First journey into the world of Reygadas and I was absolutely blown away.
Neo-realist elements seamlessly blended with some transcendental inexplicable moments,
incredible imagery and an exploration into a world of faith that I know next to nothing about.
Will definitely be back for more
I put this film off for way too long because it was a Photo-Novel, but this was not anything even remotely close to a disadvantage. The still images which the film is comprised of perfectly capture the dream-like instability of time. A fantastic story which would have worked in literally any medium, found the perfect one as we see here. Knowing this was the inspiration behind Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys also makes it an interesting watch. Will have to without a doubt explore more of Marker’s work.
