Few things are more rewarding (to this particular cinephile) than an artist launching out to do cinema in an entirely new way and achieving a fruitful synthesis. COCOTE is a supreme exemplar. The assemblage of formal approaches here is not only arresting but speaks to personal and spiritual dislocation. We almost never see films of such a vision as this made by the inhabitants of generally overlooked regions.
Digital. Aspects of contemporary cinema, LEFFEST 1: to make various styles within the same narrative, pretending to be meaningful for that very reason - that is, make the narration more significant than narrative - if it's a merit of a cinema that has always been modern, it is also a demerit, when it's random and pretentious, forcing so much to be "wow". This is an extreme case of that expenditure.
