The beauty is in the way Alonso observes his characters moving through space and time and measures the beats between the action.

In his fourth feature, Alonso trusts fully in the power of the camera to communicate emotions and connections with a stunning grace and total confidence.

There are no tears, no hugs-not even a gesture of goodbye. Like the weather, the emotions expressed between folks are bitingly cold.

The imagery is meticulous, the pacing carefully measured, and the mood generally melancholy and enigmatic. Whether the film adds up to more than the some of its parts is moot; Alonso certainly seems keen not to give away any superflous information.

Objects have any number of unique symbolic attributes, but their meanings become increasingly and intriguingly malleable through Alonso's patient, long-take purview.

Liverpool opens with a big blast of neo surf, and coasts on that energy for the movie's 84 minutes, ending with a shot of corresponding impact.

To Lisandro Alonso's wandering characters, every place they go seems like the edge of the world.
