Talk about Jumper. In the Mexican feature Enlightened Blood (La Sangre Iluminada), which played Friday, Feb. 29, at Cinequest in San Jose, some kind of cosmic nose bleed sends characters careening into the bodies—and lives—of complete strangers. With both the memories of past lives and all the cares, joys and woes of new lives, they attempt to navigate large stretches of emotional terrain while the clock ticks. And then, when perhaps they have found love, they migrate again and must start anew. It’s like horizontal reincarnation at an accelerated pace (and a lot like David Lynch, circa Mulholland Dr. and Inland Empire). Eventually, one old man begins to put the pieces together and makes contact with the people he has encountered and occupied in the past. I’m not sure that I put the puzzle together correctly—for obvious reasons, keeping the characters straight is difficult. But the overall sense of regret that must come from dropping in on a life you didn’t create is palpable and painful. Two performances stand out: Enoc Leaño as Eugenio, an average guy who finds his deepest love when his meets a quiet, tender woman named Isabel (Leticia Gutiérrez). The film shows agains on March 3 at 9:15pm and March 5 at 4:15pm at Camera 12 in downtown San Jose. For complete coverage of Cinequest, check out Metroactive.com.
