Misunderstood review

Posted : 1 day, 1 hour ago on 28 February 2015 11:18 (A review of Misunderstood)

Comencini knows everything about children (I've read his statements on this films in Jean Gili's book on him). Great little scene the one in the boat where Andrea 'fonds' his lost mother in his little brother.You laugh (with the racist 'blague') and cry without being pushed to do so. Great film about kids not for them.

Totò e Carolina review

Posted : 1 day, 1 hour ago on 28 February 2015 11:10 (A review of Totò e Carolina)

In spite of a loose middle section, with Toto and situations too repeated; some very nice touches embracing thiefs, a hipocrit priest, an amoral lost girl (Ferrero is ok). Toto clowns in a well structured background. Strange touch the one of the communist team singing in the truck and helping Toto.

Giovani mariti review

Posted : 1 day, 1 hour ago on 28 February 2015 11:05 (A review of Giovani mariti)

Bolgnini's 'I vitelloni'. Modern,tender (Giulio's love for Laura and every scene regarding Blain and Lualdi). Is obvious that Pasolini's script loves young men (Cifariello conquering Koscina in his swimming suit, has all the repressed energy of the province).

Clouds of Sils Maria review

Posted : 2 days, 10 hours ago on 27 February 2015 02:30 (A review of Clouds of Sils Maria)

Good portrait of a star in distress; but everyone is in distress specially the new and more psycho generation incarnated by Jo Ann. Don't like the too wise and somehoy shallow dialogues, specially Kristen Stewart's: she is a superconsciousness.

Instructions Not Included review

Posted : 2 days, 10 hours ago on 27 February 2015 02:27 (A review of Instructions Not Included)

Tan manipulador como efectivo para el público que busca el combo de comedia con melodrama (sorry por el spoiler, pero el truco para hacer morir a la nena en lugar del padre, es bien pendenciero). Si hubiera corregido lo monstruoso que resulta su personaje y el de la nena, era otra película más creíble, pero menos rara.

Magic in the Moonlight review

Posted : 2 days, 10 hours ago on 27 February 2015 02:23 (A review of Magic in the Moonlight)

Yes, a minor Allen but everything is ok. Acting by Firth, Emma is gorgeous specially in the ball, the feelings are not radical, nobody gets really hurt (not even dear old aunt), as if nothing is too deep in the Cote D'Azur.

Jersey Boys review

Posted : 2 days, 10 hours ago on 27 February 2015 02:19 (A review of Jersey Boys)

The Good Fellas of pop & rock, Clint instead of Scorsese. The script is too buy finding dramatic edges (the mafia background)but the film and its spirit is harmonic.

Jauja review

Posted : 2 days, 10 hours ago on 27 February 2015 02:16 (A review of Jauja)

Alonso es un experto en el plano largo lleno de tensión, belleza de paisaje, violencia y sexo a punto de explotar. Sobre la precariedad de esta gente en un viaje a no se donde y en medio de la nada, pero en vísperas del baile del ministro; la precariedad se vuelve anécodta y situación extrema, la hija se fuga con el soldado prisionero, cae, se presume, en la locura del misterioso Zuloaga. Pero todo era un proyección desde la normalidad de un presente europeo...

Escape review

Posted : 1 week, 1 day ago on 21 February 2015 03:41 (A review of Escape)

Ok direction and acting,but too dependant on the escape, there are few moments to stay with Rex's and his thoughts, and Manki can't make much with untasty Cummins.

Crossed Swords review

Posted : 1 week, 1 day ago on 21 February 2015 03:33 (A review of Crossed Swords)

Lollo work). represses her sexiness and Flynn is obliged too exagerate his impossible youth and skills to jump form windows (a lot of visible stunt work is involved). Story is ok with banning of single man in the town and all women saving them by flirtinf with the guards).

“Carroll is excellent as the adventuress with a secret and a heart and Crain is more then ok. ¡It´s Dorothy Parker in the script! Well, Carroll has good lines and theres a lot of hipocresy and innuendo in all the cast. Don´t like the aging of Carroll and Sanders.” read more

“The 7th Lewis and Martin and the plot establishes clearly, with some dramatism between routines, who is who in the funny duette. Not so good gags but you can feel the armony and the tension of the pairing.” read more

“Touching in the beginning and ending, but slow and talkie in the middle. Sullavan is a world apart in acting, she is convincing in each inverosimile scene, and you can feel harsh Marshall smelting at her side. Owen is excellent, and Morgan, the looser millionaire has a great line: "If there´s a goo” read more

“Good grumpy old Otto seems to in love with Maggie and hier ingenue agresiveness. But its more in dialogue than in gestures and mise en scene. Too speechy for suc a gret director. Holden and Niven ok, even Dawn Addams.” read more

“One of the best Altman´s. Great sense of period in the air and in the road (the radio soundtrack is precise), the lost America before new deal. Keith and Shelley make a wonderful, naif, alternative, revolutionary couple without the Bonnie and Clyde glamour. Chicamaw is a stunning brute and Uncle T ” read more

“Subtle, good acting, great vital scope, cold coastal russian landscape used as well as Ceylan in "Winter sleep". Eliptical sometimes, long and static in other, but advances with hard beats. The leviathan whale, is a good motif, in skeleton and alife just in a glimpse.” read more

“Deserved to be one of the 8 nominees. Straight, well acted (Carell is the best, Tatum imitates wrestling gestures), good use of the ambiguity of wrestling phisical touches. The big conflict (poor devils, the wrestlers)is between Carell and his mother (the best scene is when she enters the training r” read more
