The immensely powerful closing tracking shot should be enough of a reason to see this mesmerizing fable. I welcome Carlos Reygadas to the soon-to-be-one-of-the-greatest directors hall. May he continue making amazing films like his first one...

The movie was horrible. It was incredibly slow and tedious, with long lengths of time devoted to watching a 50-year old guy sitting doing nothing with no dialogue and no music.

It was incredibly slow and tedious, with long lengths of time devoted to watching a 50-year old guy sitting doing nothing with no dialogue and no music. It was painful to watch. And it was disgusting. Ten minutes are spent watching a naked 50-year old guy stroke his thing, and 15 minutes to watching the same guy have intercourse with a naked 80-year old lady. Avoid this movie like the plague. Expand

One of the most amazing films I've ever seen. The way Reygadas uses the widescreen camera is amazing and the much-touted last scene is one of the most amazing travelling shots ever composed on film. No joke. Collapse

This director is brilliant. It is an extremely slow film, but the director's eye is astonishing and he gives you a great sense of being in Mexico. If you like mainstream movies, stay away.

Watch out for these art-film types who think this bore-fest is beautiful. It surely had an odd lot of characters. The group of workers and the singer was like a bad acid trip. I watched half of this movie with one eye opened, the other half Watch out for these art-film types who think this bore-fest is beautiful. It surely had an odd lot of characters. The group of workers and the singer was like a bad acid trip. I watched half of this movie with one eye opened, the other half with both eyes shut! Expand
