Amazing cinematography by Sergey Urusevsky. This will be my new touchstone when trying to describe Benoît Debie’s unhinged floaty style via Zbigniew Rybczyński, a style in motion without composition but with directedness, perfect for immersive cinema.

Also, nice healthy dose of populist, anti-capitalist, anti-colonial propaganda, while characters remain flawed, complex, symbolic. Especially Enrique, unable to separate the individual from the cause, whether a dead friend, a still living assassination target, or his downfall in a single evil policeman.
