"Tyrel" is a lab experiment with no insight into feelings of otherness beyond the blinding light directed at its wigged-out subject.

Silva's most political work yet--though it is sly and subtle, the intention is palpable, the emotions elicited all too real, and ultimately, "Tyrel" proves to be a fascinating entry in his body of work.
