Mexican director Carlos Reygadas' first film is a poetic, existential drama that explores life, death, truth and redemption by following a suicidal old man on his journey through the rugged, unforgiving Mexican landscape. Shot on grainy 16mm, Japon features beautiful, lush landscapes and is reminiscent of Herzog and Tarkovsky in its power. "A confident and achieved debut" (J. Hoberman, Village Voice). Carlos Reygadas---Mexico/Spain---2002---122 mins.
