Batalla en el cielo

Carlos Reygadas Mexico, 2005

Ben's rating of the film Battle in Heaven

Confronting, both thematically and (especially) visually. The film blends religious symbolism with a narrative of poverty and class division, suggesting the path to salvation, and its terminus, can take many forms. A melancholy film personifying a nation's domestic issues.
