A Woman Like Satan review

Posted : 1 day, 1 hour ago on 22 November 2014 05:02 (A review of A Woman Like Satan )

A pretext to undress BB. in exotic Seville. I cant' stans BB dnacing flamenco, as poor Duvivier can'r stand the comparison with what Von Sternberg and Buñuel made with the same argument.At least, the decadence of Antonio Vilar is ok in the last segment. And Seville is wonderful.

The Rose Tattoo review

Posted : 1 day, 1 hour ago on 22 November 2014 04:58 (A review of The Rose Tattoo)

Rare film,the semi rural Louisiana suburb atmosphere, the surroundings of Anna´s house, collides with the theatrical text. I like the result, mostly becuase of Anna, sexy, crazy, mystical in every frame. Lancaster is risible at her side.

The Fake review

Posted : 1 day, 1 hour ago on 22 November 2014 04:54 (A review of The Fake)

I love the argument: the bad one is right, the good ones are imbeciles conspiring to make the real badmen win. I'd love to watch it with humans.

Posted : 1 week ago on 15 November 2014 08:31 (A review of The Only Game in Town)

Stagey in spite of good Decae's photo and Stevens directorial touches, because its episodic with long dialogues; but ypu canfeel the desert peopled by machines and bets of Las Vegas, through Liz's window.

Nice, cute, funny little, NY, metalinguistic romantic comedy. It laughs at all the topics and cliches of its genre.

Five Miles to Midnight review

Posted : 1 week, 1 day ago on 15 November 2014 05:20 (A review of Five Miles to Midnight)

Inverosimile plot, 'dead' Perkins can't stay with Loren if the film doesn't bild up a psycho atmosphere. An Litvak doesn't. Loren is forced to some histrionic moments, but they´re not enough.

The Emperor of Peru review

Posted : 1 week, 1 day ago on 15 November 2014 05:15 (A review of The Emperor of Peru)

So rare and subversive film for kids. Liz, the older, tells Hoang, the refugée, that he is gonna marry his mother and kiss her as in TV, !and it sounds so naif! Good ol Micky Rooney is dignified with his locomotive.

Coherence review

Posted : 1 week, 1 day ago on 15 November 2014 05:12 (A review of Coherence)

Simple, effective, it goes ok till the confusing and mathematic middle, but ends in a good stroll of Em gazing through windows to her other realities.

Five Star Final review

Posted : 3 weeks, 1 day ago on 1 November 2014 04:06 (A review of Five Star Final)

How strong and determined to say something was Warner and Le Roy's films in the aerly 30s. One of the most direct indictments against press,even is too obvious in some texts. Nice touch Aline MacMahon in love witg Robinson, and pervert Karloff posing as priest.

The Male Animal review

Posted : 3 weeks, 1 day ago on 1 November 2014 04:02 (A review of The Male Animal)

Amused by some modern quotations to Sacco and Vanzetti, communism, anarchism and liberalism/humanism against and above all, plus screwball psico geender stuff. Everything so slight. Nice cast, Eugene Palette great. He uses the word 'wishywashy'.

“Strong character Ryan, explaining his greed to everybody. He is worth the film. Boetticher is just learning how to seize the west, qith some good shots (the gang at night, the pastures, the welcoming of the boys).” read more

fernando posted a review of The Front Page

“Optimization of typecasting: Carol Burnett as vulgar but strong hearted whore Molly Malloy, Matthau as grumpy cinic editor, Lemmon as less cinic but poignant and talented journalist), with addition of gay David Wayne (he is great). So quick that you forget the theatrical basis and one principal set.” read more

fernando posted a review of The Dance of Reality

“Lo mejor de Jodorowsky. Cronológica, maravillada sin excederse en detalles pues todos fluyen de lo más bien en el absorvente paisaje de Tocopilla. Ni se siente lo episódico. Me encanta el detalle de la esposa cantando todos sus parlamentos. La vuelta a la semilla de Jodorowski.” read more

“Slow, long by comedy standards,verborragic scenes, but one solid argument: everything in the film points to the charitative spirit of Cooper ans its limits. Couls be the parabel of the good man.” read more
