The Hourglass Sanatorium review

Posted : 2 days, 15 hours ago on 22 April 2014 02:34 (A review of The Hourglass Sanatorium)

So bizarre, so fantastic, so rooted on the uneasy to understand nostalgia and feelings of the main charácter about his past in a jewish town in prewar Poland; that I can rate more tan 3 stars. But here is a 'sculptor in time' as Tarkovski would say.

Frozen review

Posted : 2 days, 15 hours ago on 22 April 2014 02:30 (A review of Frozen)

Because of the musical, I rate less tan 3 stars. Can't stand the booking marketing by Disney, searching for a Broadway hit while making a film, for a song hit while having a great icy spectacle. The main motif, the icy heart, gets lost in the shenanigans

Tizoc review

Posted : 1 week, 2 days ago on 15 April 2014 02:58 (A review of Tizoc)

No me cansa la audacia dentro de lo oficial y nacionalista. María de virgen a su pesar y Pedro de indio esforzado, vamos, debió resultar algo más terrible, sino fuera por la convicción que pone Ismael Rodríguez en todo lo que hace. Infante y María están tan forzados, que Rodríguez idea la secuencia del sueño de Tizoc que se cree hombre de ciudad para bailar con ella, ja.

The Visitor review

Posted : 1 week, 2 days ago on 15 April 2014 02:54 (A review of The Visitor)

Pietrangeli was really underrated, this a character film, with looser and miserable Perier, and tramp and corny Milo, monstruous Adorf (Cucaracha), and yet how lovable and close to us they are.

The Adventures of Pinocchio review

Posted : 2 weeks, 4 days ago on 5 April 2014 08:51 (A review of The Adventures of Pinocchio)

For some times, more a nightmare than a dream, Pinnochio is really upset, moved, funny, when he has to be so. Fantasy, as in the best tales,is driven form a harsh life.It is so clear for Comencini, that every actor understands it, ando you don´t feel no contrast between the realistic rural winter settings, the old port, and the stomach of the whale. Wonderful

Partner review

Posted : 2 weeks, 4 days ago on 5 April 2014 08:44 (A review of Partner)

The themes are almost clear (the double, the artifice, the theatrical way of affirm politics, ¡it's 68!)but narration is obscure. It´s a pity BB loses the story of a teacher (you get in glimpses, when Clementi is alone in the ruins). The Tina Aumont partl reciting publicity is so aged. Reminiscences of Godard.

It Happened in the Park review

Posted : 2 weeks, 5 days ago on 5 April 2014 01:19 (A review of It Happened in the Park)

Sketches with one director, one big multiclassist location (Villa Borghese) and modern and not too picaresque stories. The last is the best, most because the noble whore Franca Valeri. She could be Cabiria.

Me, Me, Me... and the Others review

Posted : 3 weeks, 3 days ago on 31 March 2014 03:48 (A review of Me, Me, Me... and the Others)

Blasetti under the skin of Fellini.He even quotes "Otto e mezzo" and has Mastroianni as the simpathetic suicidal looser.

Questa è la vita review

Posted : 3 weeks, 3 days ago on 31 March 2014 03:43 (A review of Questa è la vita)

4 good tales by Pirandello. The best is Zampa's "La patente" with Toto as a 'gafe' (a bad luck guy) that causes accidents to eweryboy and decides to make sich condition profitable. Dressed in full black, Toto is greta. The Fabrizi episode has great acting by himself,the Soldati one is light and the Pastina is neorrealist.

The Locket review

Posted : 3 weeks, 3 days ago on 31 March 2014 03:38 (A review of The Locket)

Cheap psicological argument, so truculent and ioncredible that Mitchum, as cool and inteligent as anybody, commits suicide because silly Laraine Day is more trustable than him. Brahm is enough good filmmaker to make tolerable such things.

“Rare man, Corbucci. When more light and frivolous, bitter in his commnentary on corrupt revolutionaries, deadly bandits, greedy women, vengative militars. Nero's one deadpan characterization contrasts with vital and clownesque Musante (he is a real clown in his showdown with Jack 'Curly' Palance in ” read more

“A good Ridley Scott in years. Dialogues are a bit abstract and affected but they have to pose a theory on the extrme narcoviolence in Mexico. As Brad Pitt says to Fassbender, all the the killings and decapitations are to keep the cartel's image. They point to you, the one who threats them or deceive” read more
