paul oram's rating of the film Batalla en el cielo

Another one of Reygadas' troubled souls at a moment of crisis, caught in the battle between his own cultural values and raw compulsions. That'll be good old 'Catholic guilt' then. Of course subjecting his viewer to overweight people having sex, he forces us to confront our own cultural prejudices - Manet's Olympia springs to mind. So Mubi, will you treat us to another Reygadas in 30 days? Hope so.
