Tremors (2019)
aka Temblores
First screened in October 2019
Director: Jayro Bustamante. Cast: Juan Pablo Olyslager, Mauricio Armas Zebadúa, Diane Bathen, María Telón, Pablo Arenales, Enrique Argüello, Ayla-Elea Hurtado, Joaquín Illescas, Sergio Luna, Mara Martinez, Magnolia Morales, Alejandra Estrada. Screenplay: Jayro Bustamante.

Twitter Capsule: Less stylistically nimble than Llorona, but Bustamante plays a long game of narrative complication. Strong on character.

VOR:   Film gives and then erodes the impression of tracing old beats in coming-out melodrama. Push-pull rhythms and conflicts steadily set this apart.
