  1. Jonathan Smith's rating of the film Post Mortem

    Perhaps my favourite end to a film ever - a seemingly endless static shot of Mario burying his loves & fantasies under a barrage of furniture. The tragedy and comedy of the scene, along with the striking composition, epitomise Larrin's Post Mortem. The muted colours & dour performance from Alfredo Castro carry a sombre gravitas to the political backdrop, but the film is striking sinews rather than a full bodied work.

  2. McOpinionated's rating of the film Post Mortem

    Creepy, brilliant topic, but seeing this so soon after Tony Manero nearly lowered my score - it was too similar a character. And the emotionless thing... quite appropriate to the plot but tiring to watch this "trilogy" in a short window.

  3. mootz15's rating of the film Post Mortem

    A. Castro shines again as the 'disturbed nobody', the new man of the dictatorship. In this sense, the movie is similar to Tony Manero but there is more context here (historical, social) and a sense of a real tragedy unfolding. The final scene is, as several other reviewers have pointed out, a hypnotic and brutal statement - on Chile, on love, on revenge. Poor dog.

  4. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Post Mortem

    Another very good film from Pablo Larrain, featuring another great central performance from Alfredo Castro, this may not be as good as some of his other works, but it's still an interesting and worthwhile viewing experience.

  5. Jegsy's rating of the film Post Mortem

    What begins as an engaging insight into ordinary lives in extraordinary times, with some exceptional dialogue that captures how people don't really listen to one another, evolves into a far broader and all encapsulating meditation on desire, violence and the limitless capacity of human cruelty that arrives at the same time as the potential for mercy and kindness.

  6. Dimitris's rating of the film Post Mortem

    Shocking & disconcerting from the 1st frame until the last.Armstrong's and Larraín's compositions are slightly off,the colors muted,the image blown up from 16mm,the unnecessarily long duration of the shots unnerving & Castro's performance chilling.The result is horrifying; a nightmare you can't wake up from: The closest we'll ever get in feeling how the Chileans must have felt during the first days of Pinochet's coup

  7. SiIencio's rating of the film Post Mortem

    Dark reflection of one of the most tetric periods in recent Chilean history. Larraín cleverly explores those harsh crucial days cunningly reaching the heart of the conflict marching his characters along the beat of a danse macabre. Life already seems to have abandoned everyone on the eve of death at a time when love trudges through mud, unconvinging, ineffective, doomed to fail.

  8. Steve G.'s rating of the film Post Mortem

    That's the smallest frying pan I've ever seen.

  10. Rodrigo's rating of the film Post Mortem

  11. bagno's rating of the film Post Mortem

    2.5 finale della madonna

  12. Matthew Martens's rating of the film Post Mortem

    A post-love, post-life, past-loss story. Very great, very grey, very grim, and very grinding, with a side of harrowing wry.

  13. Absentia's rating of the film Post Mortem

  14. Levent Güçer's rating of the film Post Mortem

  15. Dries's rating of the film Post Mortem

    Gli ho preferito Tony manero ma qui c'è un piano sequenza finale che è D-E-V-A-S-T-A-N-T-E !!!

  16. Zepo's rating of the film Post Mortem

    Con sus planos alargados, el director no sugiere a teflexionar en las terribles dictaduras militares que se vivieron durante décadas en el sur del continente Americano. La óptica de la guerra dsde una morgue, y desde la mirada fria y gris de un personaje comun y corriente es sumamente interesante. La autopsia de Allende: magistral.

  17. Charlie's rating of the film Post Mortem

    ¡Qué historia! Terrible la visión de todos los cadáveres. Hubo momentos en los que sentí una mezcla de dolor y náuseas. El final angustia.

  18. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Post Mortem

    The historical horror show of Chile... very scary.

  19. El Mau's rating of the film Post Mortem

    que valientes son algunos hombres con un poco de poder o con un arma en la mano, de esos sobran en México... con que sencillez se muestra el horror de lo que somos...

  20. Ricardo Corona M's rating of the film Post Mortem

    Las pilas de gente por los pasillos de la morgue sabiendo que su destino final será una fosa común y el registro anónimo en una hoja burocrática te dan una idea del impacto que este régimen de terror tuvo en la vida de los chilenos. La escena final y la autopsia del presidente Allende son magistrales.

  21. Rayo's rating of the film Post Mortem

    Chachis la disfrutó mucho de cabo a rabo. Yo pienso que el principio carecía de coherencia y un hilo conductor.

  22. Nancy Stark's rating of the film Post Mortem

    Telling analysis of the petit bourgeoisie, piling up furniture to entomb its fantasies of conquest and rescue. Post mortem, indeed. And NOT a comedy by any stretch of the imagination, except maybe the scene of him joining in when she was crying.

  23. Nelson Núñez's rating of the film Post Mortem

    Una historia de amor tragicómica y patética enmarcada en los últimos días del gobierno de Salvador Allende. La aridez de la historia sumada a una puesta en escena rigurosa y minimalista produce un efecto de distanciamiento excesivo para mi gusto. Afortunadamente, la película levanta vuelo a partir de la autopsia del presidente. La escena final también es digna de mención.
