La mujer sin cabeza

Lucrecia Martel Argentina, 2008

ginobartolomi's rating of the film The Headless Woman

Feels something like a modern day Jeanne Dielman...was the concussion meant to wake her up to the routine or even the boredom of her life? Or was she more lively before the accident..? The scene of Vero hitting the dog (?) and riving off itself is jolting and stunning, it makes the entire film worth watching, but I would have loved to have seen a little more character buildup prior, creating a little contrast.
