Cannibal (2013)

This was pretty damn amazing. The confidently slow storytelling, with a lot of silent moments and never revealing what Carlos was thinking constructed a captivating pathos that nefariously had you in its absolute thrall. It was done so perfectly in fact that for the last thirty minutes  I was speculating like a madman where the movie was going with it all and how could they possibly end it. And the ending really is the only thing that I didn’t really feel lived up to the rest of the movie. That’s not saying it has a weak ending, quite the opposite. The ending made perfect sense with the narrative, I just would have personally preferred if it had just cut to black in medias res, leaving you decide what happened next. To me it would have had more powerful conclusion, but I understand that it was necessary thematically to underline the Catharsis that has occurred with Carlos.
