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
An intriguing exploration into sheer nihilism.
The only people I can see enjoying this are the incest enthusiasts.
Explicit, bizarre and gleefully irrational. The very intense imagery overwhelms some things the movie does very well such as the set design and lighting. At times it transgresses the boundaries of horror, art house and porn, but it does each well in my opinion. The pacing could have been better but if you are into methodical deep dives into depravity this is worth checking out.
Odd film. probably 2.5 to give it an honest rating. Atmosphere was great and some of the scenes done well but there was no understanding of whether this was all drug induced, what was true or wasnt within each persons reality. Maybe it was supposed to be that way but I like a litlle more detail even in an art house film that has this much character interaction
