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
Never been to Mexico, but from the little that I know of it, I'm not so shocked by this little hotbed of horrible poetics. It was a dark dance on the theme of latin love, death & desire. Still cringed during some scenes though. Giving 5 skulls not for enjoyment, but for its boldness and artfulness. Loved the comment below that all reviews are right. Strange how each one of us intakes things differently...
only thing i got from this movie is its good to go nuts with duct tape lol
Couldn't get past the first incest scene.
Commentor atmospheric said it well. This movie tries way too hard to be shocking and pretends there is some deep philosophy behind it. Wow, humanity is brutal and violent at it's core...what a hot and original take 🙄. I've never watched such a lazy movie masquerading as something profound, and I've seen a lot of bad movies.
Similar to Mother! (2017) Cool, allegorical film. Nietschean or Judeao-Christian, not sure which in the end. Eschews realism and demands participation to create a subjective experience and force thinking upon an audience. I could have used more hints at the intention of the last quarter of the film unless it was more or less more of the same message... Real question is: Where are the eggs from? Enjoy
