obese in length and overflowing in pretension like so many prototypical art films

If you're in synch with its heartbeat, and with Reygadas' tendency to pursue visual detours that intensify the film's sensual impact, this is a remarkable first effort that is equal parts disturbing, bold, mysterious and primal.

Its pretensions have the ring of, if not exactly a vanity project, a strictly personal obsession.

The sacrificed female body is used to resurrect a condemned soul and with her ascension comes the spiritual renewal of (The) Man.

All these references, though, form a jambalaya that doesn't go down so easy.

The one thing that is clear from Japón is that a major new visual stylist has hit the screen and that Reygadas' first film represents the beginning of an auspicious career.

Unfolding at an elliptical pace that feels like a revelation, or tedium, or both, Japon recalls the glory days of 1970s art-house filmmaking.

Unlike a lot of young filmmakers, the 31-year-old Reygadas takes his ideas about the world and our place in it as seriously as his filmmaking ambitions.

Reygadas grapples with the most elemental of issues ... and the result is sly, touching and more than a little loony.

Reygadas has an impressive eye for otherworldly landscapes and an impressive ear, too.

It's not a movie to see if you're in a hurry, but its deliberate pace and thoughtful mood are refreshing antidotes to the hyperactive speed of most Hollywood pictures.

Reygadas has talent to match his ambitions; or, rather, gifts that undercut them sufficiently to give his film a prickly, haunting poignancy.

A notably confident and achieved debut, amazingly shot in 16mm Cinemascope.

Should do for Mexican existentialism what Love Liza and Leaving Las Vegas did for good old American gluttony.

Reygadas has fashioned a slow-burning meditation on life and death, faith and rebirth.
