Uneven but not terrible

I saw this movie recently and found it pretty interesting though not overwhelming good. It follows a family and community in Nicrauaga as they talk about the past war and there is a lot of focus on the Evangelical religious beliefs of some of the community, including talk about demons and ghosts.

I would have liked to have seen more focus on the misogynistic views of some of the men but that wasn't really investigated, and we didn't learn a lot about anyone except the elderly mother, the daughter and the twin brothers, and really only one brother of the twins. Cock fighting was presented as a 'normal' pastime. It did focus on an area of the world that not a lot of movies are made about, so it is fairly unique.
