3 stars out of 4 -- It is intelligent and sensitive and assembled with a great care, and worth watching just for its images of the jungle...
Rating: 8.5/10 -- It almost feels like a religious experience, watching a movie that's as beautifully alien and removed from convention as Embrace of the Serpent. Full Review
Way Too Indie
Rating: 4/5 -- The journeys of two explorers, four generations apart, into the Colombian Amazon are beautiful, frightful, and at their wildest, half-crazed. Full Review
Nobody's Reading This But Me
Rating: 4/5 -- Embrace of the Serpent is a mystical movie missile from Colombia. It's ballistic, balletic, sometimes brilliant. Full Review
EMBRACE digs so deep into the void that it eventually burrows out the other side, reclaiming the wilderness as a reservoir of lost memories.
Rating: 3/5 -- Embrace of the Serpent is a breathtakingly gorgeous Oscar-nominated drama that caresses your eyes with its visuals as it bangs you over the head with its message. Full Review
It is a glorious excursion, full of beauty and wonder, but it leaves its viewers more unsettled than before. Full Review
