josé neves's rating of the film Timbuktu

The three previous films I know of Sissako put him, from my point of view, in a prominent level in the current panorama of contemporary cinema. This one, unexpectedly, is much lower: preserving some of his ironic and temporal suspension - like, for example, "La Vie sur Terre" - and "Bamako" 's political simulacrum , apart from the initial and final scenes is a film diluted in a formless intentionality.
