Refreshingly understated road-trip, where the road's a river and the trip is both the journey and the goal. It's terrifically well shot, deals with it's themes subtly, and encourages an introspection in the viewer without being preachy. Also the shifts between the two parallel journeys decades apart are seamlessly executed, and cleverly illustrate both the immutability of the natural world and man's steady and destructive encroachment into it.

One of the more interesting experiments in postcolonial cinema, though many of its racial politics remain too on-the-nose for me. Can't help but feel I've seen this narrative a thousand times.

Trippad film som rör sig I en narkodimma som blandas upp med en dos indianvisdom. Det later förmodligen helt outhärdligt, men filmen är suggestiv och drömliknande på ett sätt som fångar och håller ens uppmärksamhet I over två timmar. Klara Apokalyps-vibbar. Rekommenderas.

A beautifully-shot film whose setting and characters give plenty of insight into the cultures and beliefs of the indigenous tribes, as well as colonial history. Ultimately the film is not quite satisfying, narratively, as both white mens' journeys come to somewhat intangible conclusions. The film's overall message feels rather ethereal and cryptic, even if the themes of man vs nature, new vs old, science vs religion are plain to see. Visually stunning but not half as fun as e.g. Apocalypto.

Ignorant western explorers ditch married life in search of the Amazon's most sacred (read: awesome) hallucinogen, only to lose their sanity and cause the decay of the native culture in the process. 10/10, would ditch again.

An excellent journey (both concretely and metaphorically) through a breathtaking environment (both corporeal and existential) by a pair and a half of astounding characters (both lovable and despised). And most of all, the use of black and white takes nothing away from the pure color of the jungle. Bonus: no need to change the title when the porn version is (eventually) made.

Despite the strong post-colonial theme, "Embrace of the Serpent" has a certain grace. I thought the racial politics were overstated two or three times, but elsewhere the script is rich and refined. It also has a genuine fascination with the rainforest and its lore, an unabashed, politically incorrect exoticism, which is what I liked the most.

The desire of the white man to understand, control, exploit and ultimately overcome nature is given expression via both the queeste for a plant and the domination of the people revering it, or at least did so before having been corrupted by embracing the serpent. Slights towards regressivism in its biblical, ecological Koyaanisqatsian themes, a nuisance only due the elements conveying that were a bit shoehorned rather than streamlined--the dynamic-maintaining insanity scene being an exception.

1 Juliol 2016 - entretinguda, potser enigmàtica? Però, potser perquè l'hem vist en tres sessions, se m'ha fet poc propera. Ni tansols m'he acabat d'aclarir amb quines preocupacions tenia cada personatge. Els diàlegs semblaven una mica hieràtics, repetitius i canviant abusivament d'idioma. Tot i així, la història és interessant.

El abrazo de la serpiente [Embrace of the Serpent] (2015) is the most earthly spiritual film in black & white you'll see from 2015!

I let myself go with white man's journey to the wholeness and unity of the universe and it gave me a feeling of greatness if not sublime. In that sense this movie could be far more than what it is, if the visual language and storytelling were also celebrating the multiplicity of nature and Pre-columbian people's ways of life, solely relying on b&w doesn't rescue the style and sometimes it got too didactic and lecture-like. But still it rests with you as a voyage, like "Dead Man" of Jarmusch.
