fernando posted a review of 3 notti d'amore

“A deception, even Spaak is radiant. Castellani tires to be comic and dark ans is helped by Salvatori ans sicilian maffiosi clises. Comencini has a one enlarged and simplified idea (she goes fot the priest and becomes nun when he goes for her), and Franco Rossi is a second Risi. Bah” read more

fernando posted a review of Fences

“Honestly, I think Wilson is a little overrated. I don't think Denzel is too teathrical, I think the play is too classy even with its deep broken characters.” read more

“It has its good moments musical and non musical (the 'schrek girl' lookalike cinderella dreaming with his prince, the quest in the forest) and all the merchandisisn art concept.” read more

fernando posted a review of Jimmy the Gent

“An interesting racket: expert genealogists that seeks heirs to huge fortunes. Cagney is more incipient than Bette here, and Curtiz doesn't put too much punch this time.” read more

fernando posted a review of Distant Drums

“The easy grandeur, great guy with hawksian (or walshian, whatever) sense of responsability, semi civilian semi militar, and a different landscape (Florida Everglades) for old Raoul.” read more

fernando posted a review of China

“I read a wrong reference pointing this film as antecedent to 'Secret onf the incas/Indiana Jones' kind of hero. Instead is adventure with pro belic war allied China theme, and overreaction to rape of girls.” read more

“Great guy Dieterle. One of the most bizarre Hollywood films (it begins with a little pig that breaks his foot), wonderfully casted, Ed Arnold is brilliant talking and sleeping, Simone Simon is cat people years before.” read more

fernando posted a review of The Salesman

“Farhadi depicting 2 or 3 levels of his underdeveloped overrated movie land. Mmmmm. Having in mind that they are actors, that they act as idiots over the accident (don't go to the police, try to make justice with their own hands), I think an oscar was too much.” read more

fernando posted a review of Tanna

“Ambitious, extreme being fluent and harmonious, not arguing about fiction and documentary, just making the tribe like what they are narrating.” read more

“Neither sequel, nor prequel; a variation on the same, with sporadic touches, mostly regarding non humans. I don't like Felicity 'stardust' Jones, a bit corny a bit fantastic superwoman.” read more

“Caine is ok in this light thriller on ominous subject (nazi lagacy) in wich Frankenheimer is really down.” read more

“Good stories but the compete against each other fot attention. I prefer the hideous mother killed by his son, ant the dual choral (because there are many storiies and characters and because there´s a group of marginals trying to have a parade).” read more

“Impossible not to make somethinf out of this story. Don't like the narration, recalled from a present wich is not a special one. Volonte is ok, the parents don't act like tne 'contadini' they are.” read more

fernando posted a review of Plucking the Daisy

“Well paced comedy, so light even in its provocative striptease background. But more determinant is the small town (Vichy) background, and the Gelin's stereotypical seductive guy.” read more

“Long, dry, too selfconscious and talky in Milloud character always making speeches on the cemetery, characters bound for sacrifice and heroism; but impressive production for a poor cinema standard,” read more

“Minor Goulding but somehow, thanks to Riskin small talk on democracy and free extravagant little john does as Gwenn here, has its charm. A rare sequence with McGuiere, Lancaster and Millard Mitchell, through a window shop.” read more

fernando posted a review of Sweepings

“Bert Pardway, one of the Barrymore´s sons (played by George Meeker) is subtlety despised by his dad because, instead of being manager of the Bazaar, he prefers to do the 'window trimming'. ¡An early 1933 precode suggestion that a man who likes interior decoration is gay! Al least, that theme would” read more

“De Santis at his most underlined, hiper dramatic, leftist approach. ?Riso amaro' is much better and eben sexier (well Lucia Bose is nice when she laying with and lying to handsome Raf).” read more

“Small Rossellini, a comic light but holistic (small village with poor and rich, bad and evil, religion and some paganism in the americans) ambition. The non actor are really non actors.” read more

fernando posted a review of Doctor Zhivago

“Lean's splendour. The poetic, melancholic, a bit corny and egotistical Zhivago´s point of viex. Landscape and set design and photo (the sunflower almost crying in a somber interior) are not formalism, are moving.” read more
