Just when Alberto's situation begins to feel palpably fraught, the filmmaker's aesthetics pull you away when they should deepen the crisis.

A challenging piece of art, but the challenges yield great rewards.

August 3, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It's not a problem that "Cocote" is a fevered art film, but the movie is slipshod arty - a lurching, fragmentary tone poem that relies on too much patching together in the editing room.

Cocote tells a relatively simple story in willfully obscure, opaque fashion. While the pic features many intriguing elements and often proves visually stunning, it ultimately feels a trial to endure.

I wish I were able to give it an enthusiastic endorsement.

Getting one's bearings isn't impossible; it's like divining the trick of a Sunday crossword. But Cocote isn't purely academic. It's alternately clinical and sensual.
