The only thing better than Carlos Reygadas’s groundbreaking, otherworldly third feature, Silent Light, is the first 10 minutes of his new, 110-minute feature, Post Tenebras Lux. You have to picture this: a little girl, a huge field, lots of dogs, cows, horses, muddy puddles, dark trees, dark clouds, cracking thunder, a flash of lightning, the darkest night. The scene captures, like no other movie I can remember, the human animal’s precarious place in a vast and terribly indifferent universe. After those 10 minutes are done, you can leave, as the rest of the film is so-so and too long. (Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave,, 7 and 9:15 pm, $10, July 26–Aug 1)
