No problem, let me know how it goes! It's ridiculously hard to find where this is going to be playing. If anyone finds a good source for finding out I'd appreciate the share. Maybe they're just not going to be doing any longer theatrical releases.

*Opening in San Francisco on the 30th, that's where I'll be:

Seen it twice now, going to see it again. Agree with all of the above. I have zero idea how some couldn't enjoy this one, this level of honest filmmaking is rare and pure and entertaining as hell.
"Labor of love" is an understatement. There is a level of LAYERED DETAIL in this film that I barely ever experience, and these details are evidence for how far this man dug for the film, and also how infinitely complex he feels the universe he portrays is. Reygadas is using cinema as a tool to explore the mysteries of life. The facts are given, and they speak for themselves. And if there are any flaws with the film, this honesty and search for truth makes the flaw an integral part of the piece.

I felt sort of lucky to see this one in theaters.

New trailer

Have paid little attention to this film, just saw this trailer. That was simply magnificent. Some of those shots were-jaw dropping.

I'd put this guy in that small list of truly great filmmakers working today. I'm still thinking about it. Interestingly enough, he has the same production company as Apichapong "Joe" Weersanthukul's(I tried) films. These two filmmakers feel oddly from a similar vein to me.

Exclusive Script Extracts and Storyboards from Carlos Reygadas’ Post Tenebras Lux

http://filmmakermagazine.com/66982-exclusive-script-extracts-and-storyboards-from-carlos-reygadas-post-tenebras-lux/#.Uq-LrPYilGQ

I always wanted to see the way he writes. Through the rigid shot-by-shot, listed script, surprisingly comes poetry.

Loved these two particularly rare, enlightening lines:
"Everything is mixed in her. She cries, but looks with the amorous fragility of children. Soon she is full of sexual pleasure. And as though fainting, between steam, sweat and tears, arriving at orgasm."
"Rugby in England. Teens playing with fear and determination. In peace, not out of ecstasy."


This is now on Netflix Instant

This really didn't seem like 2ish hours, it dragged me in an unexpected way. Each scene felt so involved that I never really felt out of it. The 4:3 approach was a little bizarre at first along with some of the framing choices but visually it was stunning, not just in the environment itself but there was an incredible sense of colour to it. I feel the basic idea of this film could have been approached conventionally, in fact there is a fairly consistent narrative througout so some of the future sequences/other diversions came across as curious choices.   
Also, Rut Reygadas is absolutely adorable.

It's funny, at the end of it all, the main thought that sticks in my head is that there might finally be a dude who could adapt 100 Years of Solitude- but then I realise what a restriction that would be upon him.
