Critic Reviews for La Llorona
"La Llorona" avoids the tropes of horror... Instead, this smart and elegant film feels like a languid bit of cinematic magical realism where strange things happen - and the real horror lies not in the supernatural but in the savage acts of men.
What I love about this film is the way it blends genres... It has everything you expect in a horror movie -- things that go bump in the night -- but in this much more sophisticated way.
What stands out about the film is the pain that lies underneath Bustamante's placid compositions-an anguished desire for justice that, like the Weeping Woman herself, still cries out to be heard.
It's not just a creepy story, but a painful reflection of injustice.
With precise framing, compositional flair and a steady hand, Bustamante layers the story, adding daubs that suggest rather than explain.
