The film is strange enough to resist the worst of the old clichés, which is to say it resists moral certainty… It is a glorious excursion, full of beauty and wonder, but it leaves its viewers more unsettled than before.

What Ciro Guerra has thus accomplished with Embrace of the Serpent is not only a creative re-contextualization that redresses the shameful practices of a national history, but also a mode of storytelling that communicates in compelling, humanistic terms. As a result, Embrace of the Serpent has reached an international audience moved by the film’s respectful and relevant portrait of a world heedlessly forsaken.

Pivoting away from a Herzog-style view of this wild space as a merciless and chaotic proving ground for dreamers and maniacs, Guerra instead approaches it from a native perspective. Embrace of the Serpent thus yields a much richer portrait of the region than perhaps any before, infusing a fresh perspective and rich imagistic style into its slippery depiction of Heraclitean unity and flux.
