  1. DSPRKY's rating of the film La ciénaga

    Bourgeois malaise and the breakdown of class relations are depicted via queasy cameras and extreme close-ups, but there's also an interesting gender angle here (one that runs through Martel's other works too). What's not shown is as important as what is. Editing is tremendous.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film La ciénaga

    > Désagrégation et décrépitude des relations intra-familiales, dans une composition cinématographique réussie qui rappelle les mêmes préoccupations dénonciatrices d'un Torre Nilsson, en mode réactualisée. www.cinefiches.com

  3. Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film La ciénaga

  4. truffraud's rating of the film La ciénaga

    lazy, soothing, a little dark around the edges. a slice of balmy summer life.

  5. MONSIEURDE's rating of the film La ciénaga

  6. Miguel Antunes's rating of the film La ciénaga

  7. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film La ciénaga

    It's pretty rare to see something so narratively diffuse with so many characters not get bogged down or tiresome. at once formless and deliberate

  8. Mtume Gant's rating of the film La ciénaga

    This lady is a master. One of the best Directing runs of the first decade of the 2000's and this debut ranks with some of the best ever. A gripping look at the contentious, racist classism of the Argentinian ruling body as they slowly decay. Brilliant in every way

  12. Andrew Miller's rating of the film La ciénaga

    The scrape of chairs around a sickly pool... that sound stayed with me, and Martel has continued to make great films since.

  13. narwhal44123's rating of the film La ciénaga

    Starts with a bang, then withers out a bit, still a great showing of a desperate family. 3.5

  18. Héctor Olguín's rating of the film La ciénaga

    Su atmósfera, sus personajes bien perfilados, sus diálogos, sus acciones, su fotografía y su sonido atrapan. Y uno termina deseando un tinto con hielos (¡ja!).

  20. Atzin Ortiz González's rating of the film La ciénaga

    Lucrecia Martel's striking debut is a masterclass in filmmaking: a brilliant film full of well accomplished ideas. A subtle, keen & disturbing dissection of family decay that manages to create a menacing atmosphere of danger throughout. A contemporary masterpiece of Latin American cinema.
