A woman who is about to die calls the town’s priest and hands him a scapulary, saying that she knows of its great powers. Anybody who does not believe in them will end up dead.
It may be redundant to say this about any film photographed by Figueroa, but: CINEMATOGRAPHY! It is glorious, perfect and awesome. There was more than one moment that made me go "what?" The editing and sound design do not stay behind, and we end with something incredible. I am not feeling the story as a whole, since it feels a bit fragmented, but the rest is very good. I definitely need to rewatch this. Soon.
