El Abrazo de la Serpiente (Ciro Guerra, 2015)

Colombia está haciendo películas cabronas. El Abrazo de la Serpiente (Embrace of the Serpent), de Ciro Guerra, es la mejor evdidencia de ello. Bella película--filmada en 35mm, blanco & negro:


There’s nothing like it. Video is good for artificial lighting and urban stories, but I don’t trust the perfection of the video image. For the portrayal of nature and natural light, film is irreplaceable.--Ciro Guerra
Mítica, mística, política & onírica. Estoy de acuerdo con @jhoffman---
Ciro Guerra’s gorgeous picture just has that ripped-from-your-dreams sensibility, where surprising turns float alongside a story you feel like you’ve known your whole life. Embrace of the Serpent is the type of film we’re always searching for, yet seems so obvious once we’ve found it.
