This man knows exactly what he’s doing. (At least, when he’s making movies.) I had no trouble with the subtitles — it’s a visual story anyway. And it took only a few minutes for me to relate to the characters. They may be ancient Mayans, and I may be a Polish Jew babyboomer who grew up in the Bronx, but we have the same elemental things in common.
In fact, the last time I was mugged was an awful lot like the final scene in the movie.
