Personally this was good experience for me. And a moving one. But it does demand some work on the viewer's part. A "work of art" isn't merely work for the artist alone.
Every second of its over three hours is so tightly choreographed, every slightest movement so obsessively under the director's control, that it might as well be claymation. It is bloodless and cold, so cerebral that the flesh on abundant display might just as well be clay in an animator's studio.
As long as I had no idea who anybody was, how they were related to one another, and what the point of the movie was, I was fascinated just watching the people move like dancers through the fantastic sets and landscapes. But when its point began to come clear, that point was so trite that I wished it had stayed cold and confusing but fascinating to watch.
Overall, though, I'm glad I watched it, because it changed ME in a way I never would have expected. I discovered for the first time that I've spent all my life thinking of Mexico as a barbaric country full of poverty, drug lords, brutality, violence, filth, ugliness and absolutely nothing worthwhile. A country like that could not have given birth to a movie as accomplished and sophisticated as this movie is, so I'm completely overhauling my attitude toward our neighbor to the south.

I am not fond of fantasy on how the film made. It is very slow. This film is good for those who are into emotions. Perhaps, needs improvement on editing and baseline.Published 11 months ago by TrailWolf131
Hernandez film techniques are evident but the scene of desert is hard to follow since I did not have the background of the legend that was being used.Published 12 months ago by Manuel Rivera
Very long film, but I never lost interest. It's really deep, gotta read between the lines to figure where it's going. Enjoyable. Guys are very bone hardening cute.Published 12 months ago by R Perry
An Avante Garde film. Not a movie if you are interested in an action packed film or one with a lot of drama. Spellbinding in its simplicity.Published 14 months ago by KrissKringle Sprinkle
