Carlos Reygadas' 2007 film Silent Light was a work of earth-shattering cinema that vividly reminded many cinemagoers why they love seeing movies on the big screen. So how does Reygadas follow up a verifiable masterpiece? Six years on, Reygadas delivers another visual tour de force, an enigmatic, elusive film that presents a family of four. A blend of memoir, observations of Mexican life and a paean to the country's beautiful landscape Post Tenebras Lux is bold, visually arresting and arguably the only film to ever feature the devil (all red luminescence) in such a dramatic manner. Reygadas has once again created a complex work that may initially confound, but is also, like its predecessor, richly rewarding.
