  • The ending of Carlos Reygadas’ drama is set in a wooded Mexican landscape. That’s where Regadas (“Silent Light”) overdoes everything in a self-indulgent presentation of trite fantasies masked as memories. show more

  • Pretty pictures alone do not in themselves great cinema make - not for the first time, Reygadas' waywardly wilful approach to screenwriting and structure severely outweighs whatever fleeting pleasures his movies may impart. show more

  • Post Tenebras Lux works so well because – even at its most random – it always feels like more of a single portrait of a man in crisis than it does an impish bouquet of provocative incidents. show more
