About Carlos Reygadas

I saw "Japon" in the theaters. I went with some friends and they couldn't handle and had to leave. We didn't know what we were getting ourselves into. This film is haunting and beautiful and fucked up all at the same time. The sparse dialogue helps to foreground the poetic use of anamorphic 16mm. The high angle shot looking on the main character as he lays on the horse carcass has forever stayed with me.
