Gout undermines his own spiky, ambitious narrative with all the visual interference, as dazzling as it often is.
"Days of Grace" is a potent and vigorous film. It may not illuminate the depths or explore the causes of Mexico's crisis, but it mines that crisis for memorable images and dramatic scenes.
Most of this frantic moviemaking is more disorienting than riveting.
The dizzying narrative pings hither and thither, with first-time director Gout confidently deploying different screen ratios and film stocks to remind the audience where they are in the timeline.
The rapid-fire editing and an interesting musical score make you so dizzy it's very hard at times to follow who is doing what to whom and when. Still, there are nifty twists in the histrionic, compelling storytelling.
It does have enough action to be entertaining and it will give a lot more to the viewer who can work out the style intricacies.
The best Mexican splatterfest since Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia!
Eventually, the film's impressive array of formal pyrotechnics overwhelms its morals.
This is all very impressive in its scope and moral reach, and the movie, with its extensive use of handheld cameras, sweaty close-ups and violent encounters, is visually striking.
It may feel more like pulp than art house, but it still maintains its grip, bound together by a score composed by Nick Cave, among others.
So confusing (especially if you're a football dolt) that you may have trouble identifying the different narrative strands. It's still gripping.
There are characters who help to connect the stories and provide a straight line through a very twisted narrative. In its best moments this is an exciting, involving multi-story thriller.
There are some amazing long takes here, yes, and the brutality depicted is really appropriate; however, it seems more than evident that Gout is only aiming for style, putting together three stories using absurd twists that render the whole meaningless.
