a powerful and driven depiction of physical extremes
2 November 2018 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

I had rather expected some sort of Cronenberg inspired piece, so for once was very surprised indeed by what unfolded before me. Early on it reminded me of the 1969 Japanese film Blind Beast where a couple arranged themselves amidst a cavernous space formed from enlarged sculptures of physical forms. The couple become increasingly obsessive towards each other but things do not go as far as they do in this Mexican outing. I have heard it mentioned in the same breath as the films of Gasper Noe, compared to Eraserhead and also Pasolini's Salo, so you get the area we are coming from here. I would say this was more extreme and uncompromising and certainly more explicit. I understand the director was making a point, in this desperate depiction of degradation, that has its roots in Mexican society back to Aztec times and some basic conflagration of sex, death, pain and retribution. It is certainly a powerful and driven depiction of physical extremes that doesn't shy away from anything. So, be warned.
