It is the feeling that between yourself and the world is a thick glass wall. You hear and see without really being able to put everything in its usual context. Because of this detached reality, what you see and hear is replaced by something new, where irony does not exist and where perception seems to be guided by something else then what is immediately perceptible. Okay, he's on LSD, I hear you think.
But no; watch El Sur. What actually happens seems to be straightforward, but it's about perceiving what what's happening is actually about. Call me an autist, but it's a clearer reality.
It is crystal clear like after a crispy cold night walking out and realizing this frosty morning will develop into the first day of spring. Open your eyes. Lovely film.
