Meurtre à Pacot

Raoul Peck Haiti, 2014

Mugino's rating of the film Murder in Pacot

Peck cited "Teorema" as an influence, which only just begins to describe this film. Set entirely amidst the ruins of a condemned villa -- with cracks in the foundation and the stench of death rising from the rubble -- tensions ratchet up in the oppressive absence of hope. Absolutely engrossing and masterfully crafted.
