Dir. Lucrecia Martel. Argentina/Brazil/Spain/France/Netherlands/Mexico/Portugal/United States. 2017, 115 mins. Digital projection. In Spanish with English subtitles. In a remote South American colony in the late eighteenth century, officer Zama of the Spanish crown waits in vain for a transfer to a more prestigious location. He suffers small humiliations and petty politicking as he increasingly succumbs to lust and paranoia, progressively losing hope as well as his mind. The latest film from Lucrecia Martel (The Headless Woman)—one of the world’s greatest living directors—is a tonally and stylistically singular work, adapting Antonio di Benedetto’s 1956 classic of Argentinean literature into a mysterious, modern masterpiece in its own right.
