  • The experience must have been a cathartic one for Reygadas, but at 177 minutes, audience members who survive this marathon round of couples therapy deserve to charge an hourly rate.

  • An alluring spectacle - but shallow and self-indulgent.

  • Interludes of bulls locking horns in the twilight are a blunt visual metaphor which seem a little crass for this light-fingered director, but this is otherwise his most dramatically terse and conventional work. And definitely not in a bad way.

  • Reygadas seems to have locked himself into an unusually narrow position. Juan and Esther may have a fascinatingly novel and multifaceted marriage, but the picture that emerges, courtesy of Juan's perspective, is almost punishingly one-sided.

  • The rare spiritual drama that not only feels genuinely mysterious, but also appears to have been made by people who are aware of and interested in their human characters' flaws.

  • The fifth feature by the often-controversial and always-intriguing auteur feels profound in intention and poetically grand in scope. Reygadas, for the first time, appears less slightly cerebral and more approachably terrestrial.
