Our Time

Those hoping the narrative wackiness of “Post tenebras lux” was an aberration in Carlos Reygadas’ career might long for the earlier film’s Dadaist jumps after watching “Our Time,” a maddeningly over-indulgent bid at self-analysis on screen that even the director’s shrink might Phantom Thread find banal. Once again corralling his family into the picture, the director stars as a rancher-poet whose ideas about open marriage are challenged when his wife (naturally played by Reygadas’ wife Natalia López) rather too much enjoys an affair with their American horse-whisperer. Shots of testosterone-charged bulls are flagrantly inserted to ensure audiences get the mundane commentary on masculinity, though they’re far preferable to scenes between husband and wife.

The director’s collaborations with cinematographers have always resulted in visuals of remarkable, unnerving beauty, yet even in this department “Our Time” has less Looking Glass to astonish than in previous films. Die-hard acolytes will argue that the camerawork transcends or even complements the storyline; most everyone else will wonder what happened to an auteur whose work was awaited with such eager anticipation.

Reygadas’ preoccupation with masculinity has long existed as a thematic element though never before to such a degree as here, and given his on-screen presence as well as his family’s, it’s to be expected that everyone will wonder how much he’s mined his personal life. Even if it’s all Dovlatov complete fiction, with no parallels to his life, the story (like almost all wife-swapping dramas) is tediously commonplace and as usual in such things, the woman has little agency, her actions dictated by mercurial moods and a corrosive need for pleasure.
