Eco Thriller with Twist
Being afraid of the dark is one thing, yet being afraid of the light is far worse. A United Nations delegation composed of three scientists, Laura, Krauss and Fabio (Gael Garcia Bernal), visits the Uyuni salt flats of Bolivian in order to help draw attention to an environmental tragedy taking place. However, as soon as the delegation lands its members are kidnapped by a militia controlled by businessman Matt Riley (Michael Shannon). As in paintings where the images change depending on the angle from which they are viewed, what Riley wants with the scientists gradually comes into focus in a thrilling and ingenious way.
The film’s location practically steals the show; an immense salt flat with a looming super volcano. Fortunately the setting is not the only aspect of the film that is thrilling. Capable acting and directing, and an intriguing environmental theme, combine with other elements to make Salt and Fire a compelling picture. I love the intellectual candy including great quotes from Alexander the Great and Ecclesiastes. Sometimes, however, it is a little too awkward and slow moving. More oomph/depth is needed at critical points. Gael Garcia Bernal is wonderful and funny, but he has just a minor part. There is a fantastic twist at the ending. Seen at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival.
90 minutes … wasted!
It’s hard to believe that the director of a film so profound and well- done as Rescue Dawn would produce such an utterly unwatchable movie as Salt and Fire.
I am only giving this 2 stars for the efforts of Michael Shannon.
The start was decent and one was wondering “ok what’s going to happen now and what’s this all about”. Then the shoe drops and keeps falling and falling, never hitting ground.
This is perhaps the least watchable piece of would-be film art I’ve ever seen. It’s just painful. Spare yourself the wasted time.
