Rey is a weird and sometimes wonderful film, featuring moments of piercing, memorable strangeness ...
Rey is a bold, freakish marvel, a bottle in the ocean of cinema, but worth cracking open-it contains not one message but a whole mass of them, scrawled in many different scripts and colors with artisanal passion and (sometimes) genuine inspiration.
The actors seem to be non-professionals portraying their ancestors. However, the rest of the film does serious damage to the idea of following a straightforward and believable narrative.
It's rather laborious, but vivid enough to be worth a look if it's your kind of thing -- as it might be if you like Werner Herzog, Alejandro Jodorowsky or Guy Maddin.
Referring to the great final sequence of Irma Vep (Assayas, 1996), the film becomes a formalistic rerun that completely demolishes the story of De Tounens in a beautiful piece of fine chaos... [Full review in Spanish]
It's visionary, brave, memorable, but it also occasionally slips off of that aesthetic and intellectual tightrope of pretension/non-pretension, with little chance of this particular dialectic finding (or even seeking) resolution.
