La Ciénaga

La Ciénaga ★★★★

Southern (American) Gothic! The air is thick with humidity and thunderstorms are always lurking about as this Mandingo-esque (i.e. physically afflicted, racist, and F'd up) family festers in the stagnant pool of their social class. This is all oppressive atmosphere and icky relationships that rot quickly with all that moisture in the air. Happy Labor Day!
