WFC Mexico: Japón

I like the grainy film. 8mm? 16mm? Lots of ISOs? But even though I really like it visually, I’m afraid the film kinda lost me. Perhaps I’m just not in the mood for the languidity? (That’s a word!)

And I guess you could see the film as a series of deliberate provocations? There’s somebody killing a bird inexpertly (censored on this DVD version because British people don’t much enjoy cruelty to animals), there’s a guy masturbating (for real), there are horses fucking, there’s the sex scene with the older woman, there are dogs kicked and dead cats thrown around…

But, like.

Japon. Carlos Reygadas. 2002. Mexico.

Grapefruit margaritas

Shake with ice. Strain into a sugar rimmed glass.

I prefer it with no rimming.
