Belinda S. (niara) from NEW YORK, NY
Reviewed on 5/29/2012...
There are some films that I have seen in my lifetime that creep into my bone marrow and stay there. This is one of those films. I'm grateful I did not see it in the theatre; my weeping needed to be private. Gorgeous, horrific, brilliant, almost seductive in its beauty. Javier Bardem took my breath away. Masterful performance. This film reminded me to stay hopeful about cinema and filmaking today, just when I had nearly given up hope. Don't expect overt explanations, car explosions and comedic dialogue. If you want an experience, if you want to be moved, if you want to be reminded of the directors who are out there still taking risks and the handful of studios willing to oblige, this is the film for you.
