silent light, revisited

Went back to see Silent Light again yesterday. Incredible on multiple levels, but this trailer (not in english) will verify - even thru the muddy pixellations of youtube - one of those levels: the veracity and beauty of the images. there really aren't enough superlatives to properly express my stupefaction, amazement. Last night a couple walked out about 20 minutes in, which only confirms the movie is doing something right (provided you subscribe to the necessity of provocation in cinema, which i do, but which is funny b/c the provocation here is quiet, stillness, long shots, simple narrative). off to find carlos reygadas' other works...
