Mick LaSalle's review of the new Mel Gibson film is a delight:
In any discussion of "Apocalypto," which deals with the twilight of Mayan civilization, a delicate distinction must be made. It would be inappropriate and probably inaccurate for any critic to pronounce on the mental health of a filmmaker based on his movie. Yet no description of "Apocalypto" can even begin, much less be complete, without noting -- say, in a colloquial, nonclinical, anecdotal sort of way -- that it seems like something made by a crazy person. It's unrelenting, a succession of blood-soaked disaster, an artfully designed parade of cruelty that would make the Marquis de Sade get up and say, "Enough already."
Sounds like fun to me.

Interesting. Kim reports that the film really is as crazy as advertised.

What can I say.. Indeed some episodes are too cruel. I'd like to add that I liked Dalia Hemandez's play.
