Critic Reviews for Cielo
It should come as no surprise that McAlpine has a background in poetry. The sky is a naturally lyrical subject and the film is full of contemplative shots, displaying a rich visual language.
Somewhere between a Discovery Channel special and a Koyaanisqatsi-esque head trip, you'll find Alison McAlpine's exquisite portrait film Cielo.
Watching it can't help but call attention to the artifice of moviemaking. The sides of the frame are all too visible. Moody woodwinds fill the emptiness of the space.
McAlpine's work is subtle and sublime; its queries more like answers.
Buoyed by conversations with a variety of people closely associated with this particularly luminous region, "Cielo" should entrance all those who enter its unique atmosphere.
