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.
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.
Cocote is an enthralling film about religion, family and tradition which mixes cinéma vérité and gritty realism to produce a slippery hybrid
Nelson Carlo de Los Santos Arias' fiction-feature debut is truly emblematic of the blurring of genres and forms at cinema's front lines.
A muddled revenge crime drama.
Cocote is as clear as day and as bewildering as a nightmare, as chaotic as a whirlwind and as calm as the Caribbean Sea.
Grafts a fictional narrative onto the sturdy stock of documentary filmmaking.
Gorgeous, restlessly creative hybrid fiction combines ethnographic documentary with improvised drama to explore a clash of two religious identities.
