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.

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.

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.

A chilling exploration of the 1973 Pinochet coup soaked in metaphor but rooted in dreadful fact.

Larraín's clever use of almost humorously unconventional framings, expressively washed-out colour tones and mysterious low-key performances brings together human comedy and historical tragedy to unique, and surprisingly emotional, effect.
