‘The Cordillera of Dreams’ Review: From the Heights to the Depths


The nice Chilean documentary filmmaker Patricio Guzmán doesn’t grapple with the thought of eternity in his new image, “The Cordillera of Dreams.” He sits with it, patiently. He considers it by way of metaphor, as his digicam slowly considers the chain of Andes Mountains that makes up the cordillera of his film’s title.

Drone pictures are overused in films, usually predictably so; this chic movie, although, abounds in nice, distinctive ones. Guzmán’s lens flies the approach you would want your personal eye might, unveiling unimaginable pure magnificence and revealing secrets and techniques: a labyrinth of gorges for example. The filmmaker’s narration nuzzles up to the metaphysical, and ceaselessly anthropomorphizes the mountains that virtually seal off Guzmán’s homeland. But given his personal story and the story this image wants to inform, the film toggles between heights and depths.
