Critic Reviews for Zama
Zama, despite its setting, isn't such a radical departure for Martel; it preserves her talent for tracking an individual through chaotic social spheres ...
The frustrating nine-year wait for new material from Martel has done nothing to blunt her exquisite, inventive command of sound and image, nor her knack for subtly violent exposure of social and racial prejudice on the upper rungs of the class ladder.
The film's pleasures are that it's filled with very funny bizarre scenes.
Cleverly drawing on her protagonist's predicament, Martel offers a scathing satire of colonialism as she documents the mental deterioration of a man left hanging, existing on a diet of promises, promises, promises.
...a complex story, allegedly subtle. [Full Review in Spanish]
