Damn. Shaman got abs.

Embrace of the Serpent

Ciro Guerra's dazzling, Oscar-nominated, black & white drama is inspired by the real-life journals of European explorers Theodor Koch-Grunberg and Richard Evans Schultes). The story takes place in the Amazon basin in two different historical time periods. In 1909, a gentlemen explorer is led on a journey by a wise, young shaman to locate a miracle plant. Some 30 years later, a German ethnobotanist hunts down the now-aged shaman to confirm the existence of the curative plant. Crossing ethnology, ecology and mysticism, Guerra's primal, "Apocalypse Now meets Aguire, the Wrath of God" drama explores how European and Native American cultures have influenced one another--and generally not for the best. In Spanish, Portuguese, German, Catalan, Latin and Amazonian with English subtitles. FULL REVIEW: Trippy Colombian adventure tale takes us up the river and out of our heads by Devin D. O’Leary (3/10/2016). 125 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 3/11)
