Norte, the End of History

Norte, hangganan ng kasaysayan

Instrueret af Lav Diaz
Filippinerne, 2013


A man is wrongly jailed for murder while the real killer roams free. The murderer is an intellectual frustrated with his country’s never-ending cycle of betrayal and apathy. The convict is a simple man who finds life in prison more tolerable when something mysterious starts happening to him.

Norte, the End of History Instrueret af Lav Diaz
The temptation is to call [Diaz’s] shots simple, or austere, but they’re actually quite complex and ambitious. Yes, he avoids extraneous camera movements (though he’s not above a careful dolly shot or pan), but he composes with the skill of a great painter, playing his foregrounds and backgrounds off one another in ways that draw us into his lush frames. Diaz creates entire worlds within these lengthy static shots, and you can lose yourself in Norte’s impeccably filmed landscapes and interiors.

It’s not so much that the director is swinging for the fences of film history as he’s collapsing the distance between his own film culture — which is still primarily regarded as exotic by Western programmers and festival gatekeepers — and the rest of cinema — even as at the same time Norte stands apart by dint of its length and general severity.

Norte is both a radical departure for Diaz and a perfect gateway into the director’s work. For one, it’s conventionally handsome; though much of his output from the past decade was produced on noisy consumer-grade video and desaturated into black and white, the crisp-looking Norte finds him working in color for the first time since 2002’s shoestring sci-fi flick Hesus The Revolutionary.
