Our Time
aka Nuestro tiempo
First screened in September 2018
Director: Carlos Reygadas. Cast: Carlos Reygadas, Natalia López, Phil Burgers, Rut Reygadas, Yago Martínez, Maria Hagerman, Eleazar Reygadas. Screenplay?: Carlos Reygadas? None is credited, and none is evident.

Twitter Capsule: Oh, sweetie. Imagine making Silent Light but deciding what you really need to do is cultivate your inner Vincent Gallo.

Second Capsule: The self-pity, gross gender politics, and muddy, unpleasant storytelling in Our Time are not wholly surprising but its visual ugliness is.

VOR:   Presumably has some value to the Reygadas clan, who made this in-house self-own. He shoots like nobody else, but even that mark of distinction fades.
