Paul's rating of the film Memoria

A film that makes us connect to the ever present past. Colombia serves not only as the beautiful backdrop but as a place that aches with history. Swinton is at her restrained best. The pacing is masterfully crafted just like each shot. Every scene carefully informs how we experience the abstract ideas of the third act. And the ending made my jaw drop for some time. Its transcendental while being totally grounded.
