Brief thoughts on My Mexican Bretzel (2020) NYFF 2020


Vivian Barrett's diary forms the narrative thread of a film created via found home movies.

Interesting restructuring of reality tells the story of a woman and her former flier husband. It blends together seamlessly to the point that we fully accept the events on screen as being the actual events. Watching the film I got lost into the story and never considered that it wasn't "real"

This is a wonderful  piece of movie magic.

One of the great surprises of the NYFF.
