When the renowned journalist Silverio (Daniel Giménez Cacho) returns home to Mexico City after years away, he finds himself caught between worlds. He's raised his family abroad, the mythologies of his birthplace have become tangled with those of his chosen home, and the present moment feels unfamiliar and volatile. Alejandro González Iñárritu (The Revenant, Birdman, Babel) taps his own experiences as he makes his first Mexican film in years, creating a work that's both rapturously epic and stirringly intimate. Cinematographer Darius Khondji and Production Designer Eugenio Caballero materialize an expansive geography that glides through urban bustle and the turbulent landscape of the mind. Giménez Cacho carries the film's sophisticated tonal shifts—from wildly funny to arrestingly poignant to sublimely surreal—as Iñárritu seeks to capture the complexity of life, with its heart-piercing intensity and tragicomic drift. Bardo is a transcendent experience.
