Stellet licht (Carlos Reygadas, 2007) aka Silent Light
Silent Light (Carlos Reygadas, 2007)
The biggest disappointment of the year for me...I mean, yeah visually I can understand the comparisons to Malick, as it looks a lot like Days of Heaven in some parts, but so what...it has to amount to something. I haven't seen Ordet, from what I've read he sort of copies a lot from that film. It also reminds me of Bergman's trilogy a little bit and even Tarkovsky, but I don't see it as anything more than an amateur trying to mimic the greats, but failing to come up with something original let alone engaging.
