Recomienda | The Witch
Robbert Eggers no podría iniciar su carrera como director cinematográfico de una mejor manera que presentando The Witch, película de horror ambientada en el siglo XVII.

Tomando los archivos, mitos y leyendas de la época que documentan la cacería y quema de presuntas brujas, Eggers construyó una historia en la que una familia de fanáticos religiosos se ven orillados a exiliarse en las orillas de un bosque, lugar en el cual se ven constantemente acosados por una bruja. Lo anterior los lleva a caer en la paranoia y desconfianza, logrando así que la puritana familia se vea desintegrada e incluso orillada a tomar decisiones que resultan por demás drásticas.

Si bien The Witch se presentó hace un año durante el festival de Sundance, obteniendo así Eggers el premio a mejor director en la sección de drama, fue durante el primer cuarto del año cuando la película llegó a diversas salas de cine del mundo, específicamente durante el mes de mayo a México.

Además de contar con una historia que parece haber salido de la peor de tus pesadillas, The Witch cuenta con un trabajo técnico de primer nivel. Desde pequeños detalles como que el dialecto utilizado por los personajes emula a la perfección -o casi a la perfección- el utilizado en la época en que se sitúa, hasta los bellos encuadres que bien podrían convertirse en pinturas (y que por momentos muestran una clara referencia al trabajo de Francisco De Goya). Tampoco podemos dejar de enfatizar cada una de las actuaciones, remarcando por completo la realizada por Anya Taylor-Joy en el papel de Thomasin y a Harvey Scrimshaw como Caleb.

En conclusión, The Witch es una película que disfrutarás en todo sentido, seas o no fan del horror. Sólo el tiempo me dará la razón -o no- pero me atrevo a decir que esta película se convertirá en una de culto dentro de su género. Incluso me atrevo a decir que es el equivalente a The Shining en nuestros tiempos.

Actualmente Robert Eggers se encuentra trabajando en un remake del clásico Nosferatu (F.W. Murnau, 1922) y ha declarado que en un futuro le gustaría continuar trabajando dentro del género de horror, lo cual no podría dejarnos más emocionados al conocer el potencial con el que esta nueva promesa cuenta.

Si bien The Witch tuvo una fuerte presencia en las salas de cine del país durante el mes pasado, actualmente son pocas las salas y horarios que aún la mantienen en exhibición, sin embargo, la versión en formato casero se encuentra ya a la venta.
