Editorial Reviews

Arturo Ripstein, master filmmaker of the Mexican cinema, offers this fractured fable with an absurdist edge that serves as homage to his mentor, Luis Bunuel.
A doomsday cult called New Jerusalem takes its belief system from old biblical epics of the 1950s, particularly Cecil B. DeMille s Ten Commandments. As church elder Papa Basilio explains, God created the world, movies also create the world . . . it s the same holy act. On an old abandoned soundstage, cult leader Mama Dorito addresses the congregation as Papa Basilio projects 16mm prints of his beloved movies. When Mama Dorito realizes she is dying, a replacement must be named.
Two icons of the silver screen, Katy Jurado (El Bruto; One-Eyed Jacks) and Francisco Rabal (Sorcerer; Nazarin), bring their considerable star power to the roles of Mama Dorito and Papa.
