In his bravura feature debut, [Salvador] Carrasco has created nothing less than a dazzling vision of the birth of a uniquely Mexican religion born of the searing fusion of Catholic and Aztec deities.

An arresting, balletic performance by Damian Delgado powers this vividly imagined, elegantly paced mystery play beyond period exoticism to a bona fide illumination of social, and sacred, history.

[Director] Carrasco uses shadows and mirrors to create effects he has no actual budget for. The lack of money shows on-screen but is cleverly hidden by the director's genius for making us care about his story so much that we forgive all else.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
