August 21, 2012
Unfortunately, as beautifully presented as it is, and no matter how creepily authentic the autopsied and rotting cadavers look, Post Mortem is D.O.A. in the suspense department.
June 21, 2012
Unfortunately, the pacing also moves at a zombie shuffle, with shots held past the point of ennui to agony.

Post Mortem is - intentionally - not an engaging movie.
April 12, 2012
Larrain crafts Post Mortem as a slow, quiet character study, narrowing in on Castro in his home and office while the world outside descends into madness.

Post Mortem starts out at a crawl, but it gathers emotional momentum as it pushes forward.

April 11, 2012
The violence in Chile in 1973 when the government of Salvador Allende was overthrown seen through the eyes of a mortuary assistant.

The first half's pretentiously doom-laden vibe suggests the film is slowly tunneling up its own rigor-mortised rectum. Patience, however, will be rewarded.

[A] grim, intense, mordantly comic little film...

Often drolly, coolly morbid, Post Mortem also operates just as effectively in a more nakedly direct register.
April 10, 2012
A chilling exploration of the 1973 Pinochet coup soaked in metaphor but rooted in dreadful fact.

Pablo Larraín keeps the army's brutality off screen to amplify a sense of oppressive malevolence.

It's by no means an easy watch, but it's a rewarding and disturbing one.

September 13, 2011
An enigmatic but utterly distinctive and troubling film.
September 11, 2011
It's a bleak film that becomes positively numbing in its relentless pursuit of that perennial theme, the banality of evil.
September 9, 2011
Larraín keeps the action tightly focused on his small cast, closing in on a claustrophobic, macabre ending that works as a neat summary of all the deprivation and cruelty that has led up to it.
September 9, 2011
It's a frequent complaint that some movies are just too damn slow. And this Chilean film feels like it lasts for days.

Larrain's particular style has fervent devotees, but it can be a little too airless and pre-determined for its own good.
