“THE BLUE EYES— A Life Changing Experience


A Life Changing Experience

Amos Lassen

Director Eva Aridjis’ “The Blue Eyes” is the story of an American couple who travel to Chiapas, Mexico, where they have a life changing encounter with a shape-shifting witch, Yaxte (Ofelia Medina). Stray dogs, hallucinations, fevers, nightmares, and earthly temptations drive a wedge into their relationship and their anthropological getaway. What if Karen (Allison Case) and Paul (Zachary Booth) can’t escape their strange encounters? Are the sins of their forbears to blame for a Mayan curse?

Good performances and an excellent script make for an interesting film.
