Aurora: Directed by Cristi Puiu. With Cristi Puiu, Clara Voda, Valeria Seciu, Catrinel Dumitrescu. Viorel a 42 year old man troubled by obscure thoughts drives across the city to a destination known only to him.

“I was amazed to find this one on Netflix, got thru three hours OK. Puiu himself as the bitter divorcee Viorel does a fine turn, consistently sour-faced, obnoxious, and aggressive with everyone he has to deal with.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI wouldnu0026#39;t over-react to the washed-out winter grime of Romania, u0026quot;minus 11 in the capitalu0026quot;. Itu0026#39;s more of a backdrop than a critique. Puiu is interested in the moods of the scenes and angles, as our disturbed non-hero angles across rail lines, city streets, suburban alleys, and apartment corridors.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe end stage, where Viorel explains too much to the viewer, but also barely explains anything, is fun. And not inconsistent with how we humans are.”
