fernando posted a review of 4 for Texas

“3 stars just because Aldrich amuses in some rare moments and Ursula is a astonishing as Anita is aleady a relaxed beauty. Aldrich tries to find an amusing tone and misses the point most of the time.” read more

fernando posted a review of The Shining

“Reconciliated with Kubrick. Terror movies has evolved in such way that Shining looks ok for me. Isolation and fatalism, psycho and evil; the two forces combine well, here. Nicholson presneted at least half of his tics.” read more

fernando posted a review of Norman

“The character is better than the film, it looses too much inexplaining a lot of roundaabouts, instead of stretching the story and intensifying its best moments.” read more

fernando posted a review of Mayerling

“More than I expected. There's elegance, sense of decadence being constraint, romanticism build up with some subtlety in expense of the political background, perverse undertones (incestuous guilt between Ava and Sharif), and some fantasy in the ballet as seen by Deneuve and Sharif.” read more

fernando posted a review of The Zookeeper's Wife

“Corny to say the least. Chastain acts as shw wants to, adding a whimsical sexy/froid look that makes me laugh sometimes. A washed up great war drama with too shy animals.” read more

fernando commented on a review of 13th
The documentary is focused almost exclusively in proving its argument that mass incarceration is black oriented. That´s the point of the director, that's what I see and respect; but it's a pity that

fernando posted a review of Scaramouche

“I love this so much, this is Les enfants du paradis (Granger and parker are actors, remember) meets MGM's Hollywood, with a grand chorepgraphic finale. Yes, an unexpected masterpiece by George Sidney and by a big studio.” read more

“Huston's western balad. Lily Langtry is poetry for Judge and we undesrstand it as we see Ava. The non extreme violent elegant mexican friendly Huston is at his best.” read more

“I like that it is not ambitious, Losey doesn't portray a definite Trotsky or Mercader, they're are impredictable, non conformist, a bit fatalist but unsure of what to do. Schneider is a poor passionate woman.” read more

“Goodbye Duvivier, it's a tongue in cheek misterious non ambitious sexy plot (Senta is sexiest than ever, Delon is cute and mature).” read more

“De Mille contributing a bit late to war effort. He identifies with a doctor maybe because he is difficult to identify with an obedient GI Joe. The exotism is kept as a non invasive background.” read more

fernando posted a review of Something of Value

“Kind of funny how easy is to put hard themes as segregation and terrorism, because they are in far Kenya and terrorist are blacks from mau mau. Poitier is really good crying in most of his scenes. Hudson is a non crying white.” read more

fernando posted a review of Loving You

“Deke Rivers a good character for a just born star. A bit washed up drama, Kanter is a poor director (Lizabeth Scott doesn't know what to do, Wendell idem) that´s why is difficult to understand double entendre between all of them and their reactions” read more

“The best of the first Presley´s. Good idea to situate him in the birth of jazz New Orleans, working in Bourbon stree to make a living between hudlums, hustlers, an d a stubborn father (Jagger) who doesn't understand Tennessee Williams” read more

fernando posted a review of Pepe El Toro

“Hubiera quedado en díptico, con "Ustedes los ricos". Pero los Rodríguez quisieron exprimir la saga, dejaron la mayor tragedia en off para justificar la muerte real de Blanca Estela Pavón y le dieron a Infante una cualidad fantástica sin tratarla como tal: todo le sale mal.” read more

fernando posted a review of Dead Ringer

“The film is as aged as Bette. Lacks rythm, action, passion. The crime and the motifs are so cold and unexplained, the second characters are so useless and wasted, Malden for instance.” read more

fernando posted a review of Ahora soy rico

“Mejor que su precuela "Un rincón cerca del cielo". Grandes bloques narrativos, con Infante asciendo en fortuna y desgraciándose a pesar de la abnegación de Marga y de su amigo millonario Tony. Interpreta bien a José Alfredo en la cantina.” read more

fernando posted a review of A Patch of Blue

“A world apart for Elizabeth Harman. She lacks fury, because she has just one breakdown and is too strong for resist the humiliations. Winters is so convincing in such a oprobious role, that she deserved her oscar.” read more

“Kind of funny to see the private sponsors of the film after explaining that it hasn't received state sponsorship (OAS, Odebrecht, Camargo Correa and so on). It is hagiographic and has moments of doubt, but just strategic and political doubts (to strike or not to strike this moment), not moral” read more

fernando posted a review of 13th

“Good point, well explained and repeated and analized in its historic evolution: mass incarceration black oriented, in a way is a continuation of slavery. But they don't explore, don't even discuss a contestative theory: You do need to have punishment and prisons, ¿don't you? And there are also whit” read more
