  • Battle in Heaven

    2005. Mexico/Belgium/France. Written and directed by Carlos Reygadas. With Marcos Hernández, Anapola Mushkadiz, Bertha Ruiz. Reygadas's second film—stark, violent, and sexually explicit—created shock and controversy upon its release. Working without a screenplay and with a cast of nonactors, including his father's ex-chauffeur in the lead role, Reygadas creates a compelling portrait of a man's crisis of conscience after a kidnapping goes awry. This uncompromising vision of a world spinning out of control presents a potent critique of religion, patriarchal power structures, and an antiquated class system. In Spanish; English subtitles. 88 min.
