We Are The Flesh
Directed by Emiliano Rocha Minter
In post-apocalyptic Mexico, a creepy man forces two siblings to fulfill his dark desires in exchange for shelter. Though they’re resistant at first, Lucio and Floria quickly realize if they want to eat, they better do what he says, no matter how repulsive it may be. To say any more would spoil things, but if you’re a fan of foreign arthouse shockers that mix sex, violence and scary surrealism, like Carlos Reygadas’ BATTLE IN HEAVEN, Pasolini’s SALO and Jodorowsky’s THE HOLY MOUNTAIN, you need to check out Emiliano Rocha Minter’s transgressive terror tale.
In this explicit terror tale, a creepy man forces two siblings to fulfill his dark desires in exchange for shelter.
Cast: Noe Hernandez, María Evoli, Diego Gamaliel
A memorable experience at the cost of a movie that can be easily followed. You will find gore and taboo subjects being explored in 'We Are The Flesh' but what starts as a straightforward story soon becomes a surreal journey of pain and instinct. Personally, I really liked it but it may not appeal to those who want a clear cut story. If you're a David Lynch fan, you will find something to enjoy with this movie.
Profoundly weird. More of a 2.5/5. Not for the faint of heart.
Dreary and pretentious art film, redeemed somewhat by the attractive lead actress who is naked for much of the film.
Don’t watch this for the plot (there isn’t one, really). It’s an art film, but not a pretentious one—just a kookie one. If that sounds appealing, then give it a go. Then maybe call your siblings and tell them you love them.
