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.

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.

Often drolly, coolly morbid, Post Mortem also operates just as effectively in a more nakedly direct register.

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.

September 13, 2011
An enigmatic but utterly distinctive and troubling film.
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
Larrain's particular style has fervent devotees, but it can be a little too airless and pre-determined for its own good.

If you're fascinated by the fall of Salvador Allende (who, of course, started his career as a physician) the wounded bodies on display will almost certainly break your heart.

Impressively directed and superbly written, this is a powerful, thought-provoking and ultimately disturbing drama with stunning production design work and another superb central performance from Tony Manero star Alfredo Castro.
