CASA DE CONFUSION

This is my comment in THE EVENING CLASS’ blog:

This post is great. I just watched CASA DE LAVA and don’t understand it at all, especially what happens during the last 10 minutes of the film. So I read your post and other things that you link to, and I find them very helpful.

I especially like this sentence in your post

–“Costa cautions that Casa de Lava is a confusing film that leaves the viewer a bit lost.”—

I totally agree with it. I guess my confusion after seeing this film results partly from the fact that I watch it on a small screen, and it may also result from the use of ellipsis in its storytelling, which reminds me of such films as AU HASARD BALTHAZAR. I hope I can understand this film better if I re-watch it, or if I find any writings about the last part of the film.
