Bertoldo, Bertoldino, and Cascacenno review

Posted : 4 days, 9 hours ago on 28 March 2015 09:25 (A review of Bertoldo, Bertoldino, and Cascacenno)

It goes better and better, from the vulgar and escatological to the sublime. Every feeling and element of the film in congregated around Tognazzi'a deathbed. Great comic costumes.

Mandy review

Posted : 4 days, 9 hours ago on 28 March 2015 08:31 (A review of Mandy)

As an anticipated telefilm, too focused in a lcinical case, didactic on the education of deaf children, with some corny twirls, but a nice balance. Goold noble Hawkins, in silent love with proto feminist Phyllis Calvert.

Indiscreet review

Posted : 4 days, 9 hours ago on 28 March 2015 08:28 (A review of Indiscreet)

I love Gloria, specially singing dubbed in close up with her long hair. Subtle plot on unneccesary sincerity, but not an essay on morality and lies.

10 Rillington Place review

Posted : 4 days, 10 hours ago on 28 March 2015 08:25 (A review of 10 Rillington Place)

Cold, somehow sloe, realistic, refined dialogue by Attenborough, an ellegant exploration on cruelty and pervertion for a sick man in an oppresive context (you almost share his superiority on his wife, great passive character).

The Notebook review

Posted : 1 week, 3 days ago on 22 March 2015 02:33 (A review of The Notebook)

Effective love story combined with selfhelp plot of Garner making alzheimer(amnesia for old ladies in melodrama)patient Rowlands, remember their own love story by telling it as a novel. Too manipulative, corny some moments, aggresive in osme other moments...

The King and Four Queens review

Posted : 1 week, 3 days ago on 22 March 2015 02:27 (A review of The King and Four Queens)

Ahead of its time; everybody is crooked here but love makes Clark chose Eleanor. Big momentos of Raoul mise en scene, populating the frame with the five (including mama Jo Van Fleet) girls around Clark.

In Like Flint review

Posted : 1 week, 3 days ago on 22 March 2015 02:22 (A review of In Like Flint)

I understand why Austin Powers loves and imitates this. Flint/Cobunr is sexy, free inspired, egotistical, still a macho in a world populated by scheming beautiful girls. Great Jerry Goldsmith score.

The Geisha Boy review

Posted : 1 week, 3 days ago on 22 March 2015 02:19 (A review of The Geisha Boy)

Slow pace and too long routines for moments, but it has other great 'reduction to absurd', naif provocative gags (insinuations of a erotic symbolic world for children with geishas). Literal japanese abstraction, with paternal feelings.

Journey to the Center of the Earth review

Posted : 2 weeks, 6 days ago on 13 March 2015 02:22 (A review of Journey to the Center of the Earth)

License to straight fantasy, in contrast to first part in Edimburgh. It lacks of tthe rythm and energy of the classic adventure, but the set design, the FX and acting by Mason, pretty Dahl, are worth the film.

On the Beach review

Posted : 2 weeks, 6 days ago on 13 March 2015 02:15 (A review of On the Beach)

In spite of some terrible 'deep and solemm' close ups confronting the atomic apocalypse, Kramer never loses control. I like everything about Ava, the romantic getaway to the trout season, the scenes in the submarine outside San Francisco.

“Maybe the best Losey. It's beyond scheme and illustration, beyonn it's theatrical source even it is respectful of dramatic scenic unities (but I love how it embraces illustrative image,still photos, that are not flasjback but thesis, filosophical points). Courtenay is wonderful, Bograde is sutterin ” read more

“Life's a tale told by fools. Maybe the best by Dumont becuase there´s an intrigue, a plot, plantings, surprises and, yes, that passionate embracing of life from the poor devils mind, that exceeds any kind of filosophy. In the end I didn´t know to cry or laugh and the police officer had the same di” read more

“Too 'clicheesque', Boyer as a spaniard is a 100% french. In spite of that there's a noir romantic feeling thanks to wonderful Bacall. Paxinou is ok.Lorre repeats.” read more

“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 abou” read more

fernando posted 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.” read more

fernando posted 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).” read more

“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).
