No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Mr. Hernández's attempt to put an interior landscape on film a la Pasolini may seem stultifying and pretentious, but it's also a brave dark experiment.
Hernandez's desire to utilize all the armaments of the filmmaker hits the viewer with a visceral force.
A murky and morbid dirge of a gay romance set in Mexico City.
Self-indulgent in the extreme, Julian Hernandez's laconic ode to heartbreak feels like the work of a lovelorn teenager.
Julián Hernández has ... a film that will remain in memory for along time for anyone who knows the ecstasy of early love suddenly dissolved by unaccountable abandonment.
A ponderous, quiet little mess that has nothing to say and no idea how to say it anyway.
A self-consciously arty piece that may be psychologically useful to its writer-director but is torture for its audience.
Combined with the careful posing, enigmatic action and flowery language, it all amounts to something less than an 80-minute Calvin Klein advertisement.
A Thousand Clouds of Peace is a difficult film, both in form and substance, but it's that form and substance that makes it worthwhile, raising it above the level of typical angsty gay art-house cinema.
Idea and technique are of some interest here, but, in the end, not enough.
