Meurtre à Pacot

Raoul Peck Haiti, 2014

DrFirestone's rating of the film Murder in Pacot

Stark and down-to-earth. This film explores the social and political interactions, including the foreign (ex-colonial) influence in Haiti, where in the context of the earthquake some elements of reality start to re-emerge in brightened contrast. It manages to tackle the topic in a subtle and sometimes even beautifully poetic way. Powerfully minimalist acting, solid cinematography. Totally unexpected - excellent film!
