Neon Bull

Neon Bull ★★★★

Reviewed on Cinema Eclectica.

Gabriel Mascaro spoke of this film as a film where categories are always shifting, but to me it felt more like a film of opposites, where each discrete element casts some new light on its reverse. We understand the humans in light of the animals, we understand the men in light of the women, we understand the adults in light of the children. It develops its themes and ideas in a gradual, lucid and satisfying fashion, and also features a slapstick aside where the hero and his friend have to steal some horse semen. That's what you call playing both sides of the audience, there.
