Critic Consensus: Zama offers a series of scathingly insightful observations about colonialism and class dynamics -- and satisfyingly ends a long wait between projects from writer-director Lucrecia Martel.

Critic Reviews for Zama
A brilliantly discomfiting portrait of European colonialism and its discontents...
This is one of the most atmospheric and transporting films I've seen all year, and also one of the best.
As it goes, Zama ponders the unanswerable question of what kind of life, exactly, is worth living.
An elegantly lensed and slowly percolating satire of 18th-century colonial misadventures, adapted from a 1956 novel by Antonio Di Benedetto.
The material comes from a celebrated 1956 novel of the same name by Antonio di Benedetto, but Martel's close-ups of her red-faced leading man -- scored to a plummeting synth straight out of Scarface -- edge the film into comic territory.
