Deep in the remote mountains of somewhere that might be South America, a ragtag band of barely adolescent soldiers belonging to a shadowy guerrilla organisation are occupying a derelict ruin, guarding Doctora, an American engineer, hostage. While awaiting orders that may never come, a fracturing of power and a breakdown of loyalties in the group begins to take hold and an extraordinary descent into a form of unhinged and surreal savagery unfolds. Winner of the Special Jury Award at Sundance, Landes’ visionary third feature feels like a fever dream. With its striking baroque aesthetic, otherworldly setting, and a superb, otherworldly score by composer Mica Levi, this feral and furious drama is an astonishing piece of work.
