Jason's rating of the film Cocote

Few things are more rewarding (to this particular cinephile) than an artist launching out to do cinema in an entirely new way and achieving a fruitful synthesis. COCOTE is a supreme exemplar. The assemblage of formal approaches here is not only arresting but speaks to personal and spiritual dislocation. We almost never see films of such a vision as this made by the inhabitants of generally overlooked regions.
