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
Wow is all I can say super dark, joy to watch
i liked it,but im not sure,if im right about ,what i think it means,was it a party,where they were all stoned,and the man at the end,just left,and went home,or is that a to simple explanation?
I'm having trouble deciding what to say about this movie aside from that I hated it. Maybe I hated it because I didn't understand it, but I don't think so. I think the intended message was pretty clear, it was just a derivative message delivered as on-the-nose as it gets. The cinematography was inspired, I just wish the story and the acting had been even half as inspired. Three skulls because it was so well-shot. if not for that it'd be a low two, maybe even a one.
It reminded of a cross between Ken Russel's The Devils, Darron Aronofsky's Mother and Gaspar Noe's Irreversible. Transgressive and disturbing...sure; But this film's not the scariest I've ever seen.
If you're into sorcery and sex magic this movie may be for you. It's definitely not for everyone.
