Batalla en el cielo

Carlos Reygadas Mexico, 2005

Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Battle in Heaven

Two things that don't mix: the "art film" and pornography. Wish they would stop trying. Most of the time, as here, the work comes off as something dreamed up by a pretentious adolescent. Again Reygadas apes great filmmakers of old (Bresson, Tarkovsky), but he'll always lack that one essential thing: soul.
