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 Argentinian director presents the life of Don Diego as a oneness in which time stretches and shrinks at will. [Full review in Spanish]
In the land of [director] Lucretia Martel's sun, the only thing that can be done, if at all, is to wait for Godot. [Full review in Spanish]
As it turns out intriguing images, amazing sound design, and formal control are not enough. Especially if your movie is plotty.
