Profundo carmesí

Arturo Ripstein Spain, 1996

ramosbarajas's rating of the film Deep Crimson

In the end, it is a grotesque and horrifying story of what two individuals do to feel loved. As the film unravels, their actions become more despicable but with the masterful movement of the camera wandering the sordid interiors and the long takes, one feels part of the story as a detached voyeur. The film hits several high notes wonderfully that one begins to wonder why it isn't included in the cinematic canon.
