Casa de Lava Dirigida por Pedro Costa
…If one combines this struggle with Costa’s uncanny and always evolving talent for composition and color, the overall aspiration resembles both what Godard has called “the definitive by chance” and the fusion of fiction and documentary sought and found by Kiarostami… Casa de Lava may be the film of Costa’s that poses the most constant and furious tug of war in his oeuvre between Hollywood narrative and the portraiture of both places and people, staging an almost epic battle between the two.

Elliptical, stylized melodrama whose narrative shortcomings are compensated by the powerful mood of eerie alienation it conjures.
