  • Campos, a cinematic disciple of Stanley Kubrick and latter-period Gus Van Sant, opts to let the movie do the talking for him. The fact that this is a film of few words only adds to its hypnotic, relentless pull. show more

  • Though thin on story, the film shows poise and vision, using bleak cinema-realité techniques with chilling effect. Campos promises to be heard from again. show more

  • This is a sophisticated stylistic exercise too rarefied for wide audiences, but earmarked for critical kudos. show more
