Dir. Lucretia Martel. 2017, 115 mins. In Spanish with English subtitles. With Daniel Giménez Cacho, Lola Dueñas, Matheus Nachtergaele. In a remote South American colony in the late eighteenth century, officer Zama of the Spanish crown waits in vain for a transfer to a more prestigious location. He suffers small humiliations and petty politicking as he increasingly succumbs to lust and paranoia, progressively losing hope as well as his mind. The latest film from Lucretia Martel (The Headless Woman)—one of the world’s greatest living directors—is a tonally and stylistically singular work, adapting Antonio di Benedetto’s 1956 classic of Argentinean literature into a mysterious, modern masterpiece in its own right.

“A cinematic marvel”—Manohla Dargis, The New York Times (Critic’s Pick)
