Umbracle ★★★★

Three minutes in it seemed to be veering on a low-key thriller take on Akerman's HOTEL MONTEREY, which I'd have dug fine, but it gets a lot more polymorphous, taking break neck curves into everyrhing from political lectures to sexy times to Christopher Lee reading "The Raven" to slaughterhouse footage set to pop music. And yet it burns through with a revolutionary ardor and anger - this is one of the few films I've seen interrupted by a political speech where said speech is actively necessary to understanding the rest of the film - which *almost* provides a satisfying backbone.
