Post Tenebras Lux Reviews
I do enjoy movies like this, I'm not just liking it out of pure admiration. It's exciting for me to watch films like this stretch the boundaries of their art form.
Okay, naysayers out? Huddle up and listen close. I loved "Post Tenebras Lux". I love pretty much all movies like this; tough to seek out, and even tougher to comprehend. "Lux" puts "Upstream Color" to shame in terms of knotty mosaics. Or at least I think. It basically boils down to whether or not you have, not only the patience to watch this, but how much enjoyment you derive from seeing random strange images, "characters" you have to describe in quotes, and scenes that repeat and overlap as visual paradoxes unto themselves. Pretentious? Yeah, I guess. The better it sits with you the more you'll want to lick that phrase, though.
"Post Tenebras Lux" translates literally as "after darkness light". I don't know if there should be a comma after "darkness". That's maybe too much of a segregation. And Reygadas, he's anything but classifiable, the keeper of his own crypt of optic, unforgettable rhythm. (84/100)
La historia de una familia que se muda al campo solo ser√° entretenida para una persona, en la medida que se adopte la visi√≥n del Director como propia lo cual es dif√≠cil en parte debido a la estructura narrativa
La fotograf√≠a es excelente a pesar del desconcierto que va causar el hecho de que est√° filmado en un radio de 4 √? 3 que, bueno es un tipo de cinematograf√≠a Interesante
A little girl walks around cows for about 15 minutes, mumbling and then screaming words in spanish. What follows is just nonsense, more mind-numbing scenes like this, some are sequences of a horribly made CGI devil who seems to be coming home from work and an orgy in a steam room.
There are overrated directors whose work I'm not really a big fan of, like say Gaspar Noe, but yet I do appreciate their work to some level and highly anticipate their future work for its originality. I can't say the same of Carlos Reygadas, with this I will probably abstain from seeing any other film of his, I hate movies that make me suffer while watching them and this was just too much of that.
It reminded me of "To the Wonder", which I walked out of 20 minutes in this year, but I told myself not to do the same with this one, I had to stay and see if anything would happen, but nothing happened at all. Along with "Le Quattro Volte" this deserves to be on more lists of the most boring films of all time.
I couldn't find the point to this movie, I still can't and I probably never will.
I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, seriously don't waste your time (unless you liked "Le Quattro Volte".
