Blu-ray Review - Post Tenebras Lux


Interpretational filmmaking should be a great many things. We hope for mystery, symbolism, emotion, and art. To be in the hands of a helmer who takes this responsibility seriously results in dynamic, unforgettable cinema. "Post Tenebras Lux" is determined to stake its claim as a wonder of the subconscious, with writer/director Carlos Reygadas turning on the art-school afterburners to craft a vaguely defined ode to patriarchal concerns, class anxiety, and naturalistic splendor. It's not a feature that welcomes a thorough dissection, since most, if not all the movie exists in Reygadas's mind, where the images hold special meaning and the characters possess significant traits only one man is meant to understand. Undeniably beautiful but exhausting and intermittently intolerable, "Post Tenebras Lux" is one of those pictures that doesn't seek approval and doesn't particularly care if anyone is watching.
