Think Luis Buñuel spliced with Hieronymus Bosch.
Serving as co-editor as well as writer and director, Emiliano Rocha Minter is very much the author of all the chaos wrought here, and his thoroughly arresting vision could squat quite comfortably alongside Hieronymus Bosch's depiction of hell.
This is dirty, abusive, sticky, heartfelt (?), enlightened (??), intellectual (???), deranged, offensive, damningly provocative filmmaking at its...most...unhinged?
Challenging, daring, provocative, disgusting - We are the Flesh is all those things and then some, but also superbly crafted and always visually compelling.
Until the thought-provoking, from-left-field twist ending, We Are the Flesh mostly seems like a series of sick tableaux, dredged up from the director's subconscious and then splattered across the screen. But there's genuine artistry even to this film's most exploitative moments.
For every moment of sick visceral genius (e.g. whenever Hernandez or Evoli are left to their own devices), there's another of clumsy metaphor (e.g. the limp punchline of the movie's final minutes).
