Post Tenebras Lux

High-Def Digest
2 January 2014
  • Conclusion: 'Post Tenebras Lux' will be a difficult or maddening film for some, and a work of indecipherable art to others. It mixes genres at will, leaves segments seemingly unresolved, and thinks of chronology as something for others to worry about, and yet Reygadas has made a gorgeous, film that's worth...

  • Conclusion: "Post Tenebras Lux" doesn't carry the psychological weight necessary to expand on its soulful intentions, too distracted with abstract visions such as a red devil who appears twice during the effort, meandering through a house while carrying a tool box.

  • Excerpt: Post Tenebras Lux opens with two of the most astonishing sequences in recent memory. In the first, a little girl of about 2 or 3 wanders gleefully across a muddy landscape filled with cows and large dogs, taking evident pleasure simply in being alive.

  • Summary: Didn’t come together for me as much as Reygadas’ previous film Silent Light did, but honestly I don’t know if or how I’d change a frame of it. This arcane, time-skipping autobiographical meditation on family, life, Mexico, or whatever, is totally mesmerising in parts, off-putting in others, as...
