70mm at Aero theater with Ron Howard in person. Brought me back to being an 8 year old kid. Playful, imaginative, hilarious. Val Kilmer is amazing. Warwick Davis was only 17 years old when leading this movie. I cried twice. Good shit.
A beautifully observed film that achieves simplicity through concise and unflinching tableaus of an elderly couple trying to survive in the harsh Andes terrain. The first film ever to be entirely spoken in Aymara, an indigenous language from the south of Peru and Bolivia, the two leads give performances that can barely be characterized as acting. Left me pondering the spiritual complexities of old age, companionship and the erasure of culture.
