Nelson Carlo de los Santos Arias República Dominicana, 2017

OFF_FRAME's rating of the film Cocote

Loved the bold stylistic choices here and the throbbing, rhythmic soundtrack that contrasted so beautifully with the natural sounds of daily life. Cut out about 20 mins of death rites and I would have given it another star. It's more of an experience than a character study in that the number of close-ups on Alberto are so few it's hard to really get inside his head but fun to join him. 3 stars
