This, alas, is where the rush of end-of-year screeners can alter my judgment of a film.  On the strength of a second viewing yesterday, I would've put this on my Best of 2020 list (probably around #7 or 8), rather than relegating it to Honorable Mention.  Participants here may also find it of interest as a film featuring answered prayer (which I mention in my review), albeit not in ways that the pray-ers intended.

On the strength of this and his first film Ixcanul, I will now watch anything new that Bustamante creates, and I'm eager to track down his second film Tremors, which apparently deals with the fallout of a member of an evangelical community coming out of the closet.

Anywho, here's my review of La Llorona: https://www.patheos.com/blogs/secularcinephile/2021/01/movies-you-might-have-missed-in-2020-la-llorona/

So weird... I saw you posting on this, I believe both here and on fb(?) maybe? And I thought to myself, huh. I don’t remember that movie being all that great. And I thought that for quite a while. Weeks or months? And then I saw the trailer for this film, and whatever I saw, it wasn’t this. 

I am getting old. 

I need to check this one out.

I think there was an American movie a year or two earlier called The Curse of La Llorona - maybe that's what you're thinking of?

That is exactly what I have been thinking of. 

Thanks for helping me get that straight!
