"Neon Bull"

I saw this film at TIFF, but wasn't in the proper frame of mind for it so I left halfway through knowing it would probably be playing another film fest, which it did. The Festival du Nouveau Cinema de Montreal. It's a hypnotic blend of raw natural instinct mixed with the most primordial sexuality imaginable in a movie. I really dug it, there are some scenes in Gabriel Mascaro's Neon Bull that just hypnotize. Yet, at its core the scenes are nothing more than rodeo people interacting with one another or doing their work. Every scene is filled with some kind of sexual allure, all done in a kind of cinema verite doc-style manner. You should check it out.
