Jauja | Blu-ray Review

25 August 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Like each of Lisandro Alonso‘s cinematic offerings that came before – La LibertadLos MuertosFantasma and Liverpool – the Un Certain Regard debuted, Fipresci Prize winning Jauja regards the solitary man facing the exactings of life, nature and the human spirit. But something is quite different here. There seems to be some kind of scripted narrative, lavish costuming and even what many would call a proper movie star in the robustly mustachioed Viggo Mortensen. Yet by embracing these glacial shifts in the filmmaking process itself, Alonso has elevated his art from contemplatively ethnographic to something much more strange, exciting, illusive and illuminating.

For the first time in his career, Alonso parsed out something resembling a working feature length script in partnership with the Argentinian poet Fabián Casas whom he’d worked with previously on untitled Albert Serra addressed short and took on Mortensen as both his leading man producer on the project, »

Interview: Lisandro Alonso On Why Viggo Mortensen Was the Ideal Partner for 'Jauja'

20 March 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In Lisandro Alonso's "Jauja," a Danish explorer (Viggo Mortensen) wanders into mysterious region of the Argentinean desert in search of the eponymous mythical land. In the process, he loses track of his teenage daughter (Viibjork Mallin Agger) as she runs off with one of the officers who has joined them on their journey. Set during some non-specific time in the 19th century, "Jauja" assumes a dreamlike logic as it follows Mortensen on an increasingly expressionistic quest that finds him trapped by the mysteries of his own mind. Read More: 'Jauja' on Criticwire When "Jauja" premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year, the Argentine director was hardly a fresh name on the circuit, having garnered acclaim for slow-burn narratives including "Liverpool" and "Los Muertos." Nevertheless, "Jauja" marked a new stage of his career, finding him collaborating with a name actor for the first time as well as a co-writer, »

Notebook Reviews: Lisandro Alonso's "Jauja"

19 March 2015 6:53 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Now, out in cinema's theatres, and certainly back in the Cannes Film Festival where the Argentine film Jauja premiered, there is a distinct, complacent absence of adventuresome cinema. After a six year wait for director Lisandro Alonso to follow-up his masterpiece 2008 Liverpool, we finally have a new adventure.A fan of Alonso's work knows that his films are literally adventures, travels that are physical, bodily travails pushing through landscape. Jauja, his 19th century tale of a Danish military engineer who sets off into barren Patagonia to search for his runaway daughter, is more of the same, but still radical.Radical for getting Viggo Mortensen to play that engineer, to speak good Danish and stilted Spanish, and to become a body to press upon Alonso's prehistoric landscapes. Radical for its old fashionedness, shot in curved-edge 1.33 on film with sky and ground in frame, with that frame bisected by the horizon, like John Ford compositions. »

Video Interview: Lisandro Alonso & Viggo Mortensen (Jauja)

19 March 2015 4:05 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Lisandro Alonso and Viggo Mortensen are oddly like magnets – figures that on one side might resist one another, yet on the opposite sides naturally embrace one another, working perfectly in tandem toward one common goal in which creation and collaboration naturally flourish. Alonso, being an Argentinian director whose oeuvre almost almost solely constructed of mysterious works (even to the director himself), such as Los Muertos or Liverpool, that follow solitary men along near silent journeys into the harsh wilderness, and Mortensen, a multilingual Danish-American movie star whose reserved every-man persona has been marched on screen from Mordor to Millbrook to great acclaim, yet they share both a deep respect for transcendental cinema and a strikingly admirable lack of pretensions when it comes to their own investment in the medium. Their first collaboration, and Alonso’s first project working with not only a professional actor, but with an actual script (written »

Review: Beautiful, Philosophical, Episodic 'Jauja' Starring Viggo Mortensen

18 March 2015 3:35 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A strikingly shot odyssey that makes extensive use of the dramatic, varied landscapes of rural South America and moves at a pace that would see it quickly outflanked by the average glacier, “Jauja” may involve the talents of the biggest star he’s ever worked with in Viggo Mortensen, but it’s resolutely a Lisandro Alonso film, for better, or if you like watching things happen, largely for worse. We can’t say we’re massive fans of the director’s previous features (2008’s “Liverpool” and 2004’s “Los Muertos” feel like the closest siblings to "Jauja," and both frustrated the hell out of us), but the director has gained a fairly worshipful critical following elsewhere, especially among the “narrative”-is-a-dirty-word brigade. Still, we were hopeful that his tendency for tedium might be mitigated this time out, as the film not only stars an actor we admire, but has a relatively »
