JAUJA

(2014) dir Lisandro Alonso w/Viggo Mortensen, Viibjork Malling Agger, Ghita Norby [109 min; DCP]
Captain Gunnar Dinesen (Mortensen), a military engineer on assignment in 19th century Argentina, travels into the bleak wilderness of Patagonia when his young daughter disappears one night. Dineson’s journey is a philosophical one that leads to a haunting and ambiguous conclusion.

(3½ of 4 stars) “Alonso sustains an atmosphere of otherworldly immanence in a vivid setting, with a style involving long takes with characters posed as if in tableaux vivants.” – Peter Keough, Boston Globe

★★★★★ “Part meditative, realist anti-western, part metaphysical, Tarkovsky-esque head-scratcher.” – Michelle Devereaux, The Skinny

“I never once doubted that I was in the hands of a master filmmaker.” – Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture

“There’s so much to take in here that at times I almost felt as if I were absorbing it through my skin.” – Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice

“A film to make you wonder.” – Alex Dudok de Wit, Time Out London

NYT Critics’ Pick “There is wit and mischief in the way Mr. Alonso plays with the relationship between what we see, what we don’t see and what we expect to see.” – A. O. Scott, New York Times
