Man's Castle review

Posted : 1 day, 3 hours ago on 6 July 2015 04:21 (A review of Man's Castle)

Borzage at his best. Poetic as in silent movies, the precarious life (no house, no money, no bags, no commitments but love) makes meaningful the smallest detail, even a flower (there´s one, robbed form Connoly). Young and Tracey looking at heaven crossed by birds, through a 'windoy' in the roof, is great.

The Man Between review

Posted : 1 day, 3 hours ago on 6 July 2015 04:17 (A review of The Man Between)

Delicate in spite of location (Berlin 1953). Mason is a man between 2 connecting systems and between a marriage. Bloom is between too, but her learning, both sentimental an political, is he heart of the film.

Unbroken review

Posted : 2 days, 4 hours ago on 5 July 2015 03:27 (A review of Unbroken)

The heroism of Zamperini becomes so obvious and solemn, that seems a 'selfhelp' literatura hit. It has some masoquist moments, too, that approaches Angelina to Mel Gibson, jaja

The Producers review

Posted : 2 days, 4 hours ago on 5 July 2015 03:24 (A review of The Producers)

It's really funny and great idea for a plot, and Mostel-Wilder makes a great duo. Just a misreading of the idea (as if it were the spirit of the film and not a plot) made this a critic flop in the beinning.

Diner review

Posted : 2 days, 4 hours ago on 5 July 2015 03:21 (A review of Diner)

A mofie for a 'wonderful years generation'. Everything is cute and ok. Strong performances, most in the charm side tan in the histrionic one. Guttenberg is excellent, Dan Stern fighting with Barkin over his records, lovable.

Captain Lightfoot review

Posted : 2 days, 4 hours ago on 5 July 2015 03:18 (A review of Captain Lightfoot)

Tongue in cheek adventure with irish carácter, too shallow to deal with heroism and drama; just romance and fights and little else. Well shot in Ireland, good supporting Morrow, but Not for Sirk

Underground review

Posted : 2 weeks, 2 days ago on 21 June 2015 12:16 (A review of Underground)

Thnaks to the remasterization. Asquith doesn't like to talk and in his avoidance of dialogue he boecomes realist. I like that and the tender approach to urban modern subway life.

Interstellar review

Posted : 2 weeks, 2 days ago on 21 June 2015 12:14 (A review of Interstellar)

I prefer the melodrama in the dusty earth than the space gravity odissey. Tle love above all 5th dimensional metaphisics is plausible thanks to the storng dramatic direction.

Buffalo Bill and the Indians, or Sitting Bull's History Lesson review

Posted : 2 weeks, 2 days ago on 21 June 2015 12:10 (A review of Buffalo Bill and the Indians, or Sitting Bull's History Lesson)

Bill & the injuns, there´s always a lot of characters and details in the frame. I like it, but I like more the autoritative automistycal character of Cody, and his yesmen. Greta narration by Burt Lancaster. Grerat no comment sequence of the meeting of presidente Cleveland with Sitting Bull. The chronicle of a fake epic hero and a sad defeated indian

The Believers review

Posted : 3 weeks, 2 days ago on 14 June 2015 05:08 (A review of The Believers)

A melodramatic beginning,police stuff, and fantastic overtones (good scene the insects in Helen Shaver face); but Schlesinger loses ellegance in the conventional intrigue.

“Great Sturges, he's the one of the best alliances of straightforward Hollywood comercial filmmaking, with good dialogues, acting and even social narrative. Here, the rude friendship between Lancaster and Douglas wins over classical romance lancaster/Fleming and patoligcal bond between Douglas and Jo” read more

“All the scandal coud've been avoided just by changing references to North Corea for an imaginary crazy republic. An 'all is laughable' film with some black humor touches un the shitty song sang by a girl, private jokes as 'I've fucked more girl than Ellen de Generes' ant things like that.

“Tengo una debilidad por Ismael R. Aquí esta más a lo Indio Fernández que nunca, hasta con look Gabriel Figueroa, montaje de 'atracciones', indio junto a maguey. Su indigenismo es de lo más ambiguo, odia tanto como ama, algo así como Columba Domínguez y su atracción patológica hacia Animas. M” read more
