Silent Light

4

Sunrise, sunset… Existing inside two breathtaking time-lapse shots of the world fading between night and day, Carlos Reygadas’ extraordinary third film is something else. After the enigmatic Japón and provocative Battle in Heaven, the Mexican auteur tracks his camera into another story of forbidden love (between a married God-fearer and his mistress) and reaches an emotional landscape of overwhelming intimacy and immensity. Only the ending jars: this guy isn’t Dreyer, but boy does he want to be.
