Unhurried in its pacing, exquisitely photographed and very sparing in its presentation of bloodshed and violence, "Cannibal" observes but does not comment.

This, technically, isn't a bad film in the slightest. It's beautifully filmed with an excellent central performance from Antonio de la Torre. But,… More
