Embrace of the Serpent

Brilliant. Two ethnographers visit the same Amazonian shaman decades apart, showing the short and longterm impacts of imperialism. Breathtaking cinematography and excellent performances, especially from Antonio Bolívar and Jan Bijvoet. Gave me a lot to think about without being unnecessarily coded. Didn't know about chullachaqui before this, really interesting concept/tradition that I want to look deeper into.

Spoiler for .:
Loved the usage of the jaguar and the snake. If the sympathetic though occasionally oblivious main white characters weren't obvious enough, I think that this film was very pro-ethnography which makes sense given that it's inspired by two real ethnographic journals. Karamakate sees Theo as an extension of imperialism, but realizes too late that he's the jaguar and Theo's the snake, implying that Karamakate is the root of his death. In the end, Karamakate takes the role of the snake and gives Evan the spots of the jaguar and disappears in the morning. Karamakate realizes how people like Evan can be a vessel for his culture when he doesn't have youth to influence, and embraces it as a part of the circle of life like the predator eating prey. The jaguar mainly preserves the presence of itself, but that snake is still a part of it.

Thought that it had an excellent realistic message that handled it without going into white saviour, patronizing, or straight up racist tropes that a lot of films along these lines fall into.


5/5

Plus they ALWAYS give horror moves bad reviews unless they’re really artistic.

I mean, people who don’t like horror movies to begin with shouldn’t review them

I recently watched a french film called The Intouchables. I think it's somewhat old, but excellent and absolutely worth your time.

As far as newer films go, I recently discovered Midsommar, and I am addicted. It isn't really a horror film to me, and I find it a bit weird, but there is something I just love about it, and I've watched it a few times since.

For films in general, my husband and I started watching the James Bond series. We are up to On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

This was great, I love the awkward little trailer trash lead. Reminds me of me.
