Nine Meals from Chaos (2018)

More a cinematic poem than a conventional film (though it does have a narrative thread, and an important a 'reveal' at the end - though one which may require viewing the film in the light of the director's commentary on the blu-ray disc, where the ending, which might seem confusing, is explained). The landscape through which the kids trudge is breathtakingly desolate (and sublime and beautiful in its desolation). The landscape is made even more stark by a sort of desaturation of the colours which is very effective indeed. To me this film is utterly unique, a work which vividly conveys a kind of pessimism, but in a beautiful way. In other words, it is a sublime work. I can only convey the mood of the film with a quote from Shakespeare: "Understand more clear, What's past and what's to come is strew'd with husks And formless ruin of oblivion" (from Troilus and Cressida). Iván Noel has a unique cinematic vision, and I am very much looking forward to his next offering.

10/10

(Screencaps below are from a bootleg DVD I obtained some time ago, and the visual quality is not as good as the blu-ray.)
