As Mil e Uma Noites: Volume 2, O Desolado

Miguel Gomes Portugal, 2015

josé neves's rating of the film Arabian Nights: Volume 2, the Desolate One

The inconsistency and irrelevance continue to dominate the second volume of this filmmaker authorial saga, not reaching the desired nonsense parable for the second episode or the rural semiotic epic for the first. However, in sparse instants of the third episode, despite a traditional dramaturgy, there are few moments of a less indistinct formality. Very little to keep on taking the cloud for Juno.
