SORCERY (BRUJERÍA) tells the fascinating story of the La Recta Provincia witch trial in 19th century Chile in a dull and dreary way. There’s resonant anti-colonial themes and an amazing performance from newcomer Valentina Véliz Caileo but the whole film around it feels so lifeless and flat, a slow burn that doesn’t lead to any explosion. SORCERY is interesting as an attempt to do what critics said KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON should do and show the murder of Indigenous people by white settlers from the perspective of the victims rather than the murderers but the overall result is disappointingly forgettable.
