Post Tenebras Lux
POST TENEBRAS LUX (light after darkness), ostensibly the story of an upscale, urban family whose move to the Mexican countryside results in domestic crises and class friction, is a stunningly photographed, impressionistic psychological portrait of a family and their place within the sublime, unforgiving natural world. Reygadas conjures a host of unforgettable, ominous images: a haunting sequence at dusk as Reygadass real-life daughter wanders a muddy field and farm animals loudly circle and thunder and lightning threaten; a glowing-red demon gliding through the rooms of a home; a husband and wife visiting a swingers bathhouse with rooms named after famous philosophers. By turns entrancing and mystifying, POST TENEBRAS LUX palpably explores the primal conflicts of the human condition.

ENTRANCINGLY BEAUTIFUL. As beguiling a cinematic object as one is likely to encounter this year a personal work in which autobiographical content is lyrically transfigured and elevated to cosmic heights.  Dan Sullivan, Film Comment
