Bardo, False Chronicle Of A Handful Of Truths, dir. Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Mexico 2022, 160 min., Spanish & English with English subtitles, 15


A fêted filmmaker takes a life-changing journey from his Hollywood home to his Mexico homeland in the first feature for seven years from Academy Award-winning director Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel, Birdman, The Revenant) – shot in vivid 65mm and best seen on the big screen.

Silverio Gama (Daniel Giménez Cacho) is a filmmaker who has been living and working in Los Angeles for two decades. After he wins a prestigious American journalism award, Silverio heads to his native Mexico for the first time in years. But what looks like a simple trip home becomes an existential journey of discovery, as Silverio finds himself forced to assess questions of success and failure, mortality and humanity, family and identity. Beautifully filmed by Darius Khondji (Se7en, The Lost City of Z, Armageddon Time), Iñárritu’s first Mexico-shot feature since Amores Perros is his most personal film yet – and perhaps his most visually spectacular.
