MoMA's week-long series Mexico at Midnight: Film Noir from Mexican Cinema’s Golden Age opens today. "Twice in this series," notes Alan Scherstuhl in the Voice, "in Julio Bracho's Crepúsculo (Twilight) and Roberto Gavaldón's La Diosa Arrodillada (The Kneeling Goddess), horny swells decorate their homes with a life-size nude sculpture of the woman they cannot have, a clever way to work some nipples onscreen in a Catholic country: In Diosa, María Félix stands fully clothed beside her own stone rendition, seemingly amused at how much she outclasses the art department's chiseling. Those eyebrows, black swoops that suggest distant bird-wings at sunset—those can't be bought." » - David Hudson »
