Tabu (2012)


An evocative blend of old-school movie techniques dating all the way back to the silent period. After all this is a reimagining of the Murnau’s seminal Tabu. Miguel Gomes’ rendition is like a beautiful and poetic pop song of 1960s world music. It has countless “oh wow” images and a sly sense of humour which go a long way in breaking down its art house aesthetic into something far more accessible and stylish. I want the soundtrack. I’m also now totally game for Gomes’ thee part Arabian Nights epic.
