fernando posted a review of The Las Vegas Story

“More romantic than noir. The idea that Price gambles his wife, a necklace and the money he hasn't, is not underlined as it deserves. Russell is better than Mature.” read more

fernando posted a review of On Trial

“Switzerland is a good background to a sordid -even a bit washed- story. The paralell of Vanel's son and Vanel himself revisiting the case is ok. Grandma Berthe Bovy has the best lines.” read more

fernando posted a review of The Emperor Waltz

“Excellent. Not a minor Wilder. He makes a statement on monarchy and class division against singing american brute pragmatism, using wisely the clises. Fontaine is better than ever. More than austruhungarian monarchy, the satire goes to freudian psycoanalisis applied to dogs!” read more

fernando posted a review of The Wicked City

“Ravishing Maria Montez. Illiminates (or gets noirish) everything. And has the dialogues for it, even inventing her birthplace once and again. Lilly Palmer miscast.” read more

“Good paced, choral, in love with Sicily, tolerant in name of chuch incarnated by Chevalier. Dickinson is sex in revenge but funny, never tragiv even Lisistrata is evoked.” read more

“Good cheap natural in its exotism noir from John Farrow. Ladd has good dialogues against beautiful untrustful Gail Russell.” read more

fernando posted a comment about Anuk Steffen

“Its german realistic pace doesnt help its commercial punch. The governess is to stereotyped from a bad childish film; but all is better in the country with grandpa Bruno Ganz.”

fernando posted a review of To Paris with Love

“Too light, too easy comedy pushing Paris clisés to a idiotic extreme that converts the city in a small resort where everybody meets anytime by hazard.

fernando posted a review of Woman of Straw

“Has its moments, especially with Richardson's hidden death, but resumes badly in the end. Knox is a lousy detective and Gina a stupid italian nurse till the happy end” read more

fernando posted a review of Much Loved

“Marrakech as never seen before, in and behind turism. Whores arent idealized, just depicted, followed in their routine. Not victims, not bitches. Even when they try saudi clients.” read more

“Too manipulating, but very well paced. Girardot is excellent in close ups, with just one tear. Pradal is too old and too miscast.” read more

“Vadim plays Ophuls in a lighter and sexier way (too many gentlemen with tricky hands while delivering good dialogue). Spaak is prettier than ever transformed by Bernard Noel.” read more

fernando posted a review of Medeas

“Subtext is much bigger than text. You can't know theré´s a criminal mind there, even the trivia says that director Pallaoro based the idea on a criminal case. Nothing happens with mute Catalina betraying his husband with the gas station man.” read more

fernando posted a review of The Commune

“Ok feel of period. Some stereotipical guys in the edges and corny sides (the death of little boy), but gets intimate in the main family, in Anna's crisis and Erick's affair.” read more

“I won´t discuss Chomsky's abbility to explain and teorize, adding examples and references and 'historicizing' at the same time. It's a pitty, directors don't pause to resume or contrast. They just count 10 principles.” read more

Requiem for the American Dream

5/10

“Gomes is a little tired. The chaffingers story is long, reiterative. The Scheherezade sotry is better: really enchanting, naif, aquarian.

“More philosophical than the other tales. Simon is really desolate in his evil rural ways and I love his return to home to have a decent meal. Dixie the dog "a machine of love and oblivion" has just a glimpse of grandeur. The judge's tears is sharp and simple.” read more

“The idea is laboriously established, first with a self documentary descirbing Gomes's inner mood and portuguese historic condition. First story is 'pasoliniesque', but the cock's trial and the girl in love that puts tue country on fire, is top.” read more

fernando posted a review of The Memory of Water

“Bize es afectado, como sus actores. La estructura está bien, pues uno intuye la tragedia del hijo muerto en la piscina; pero la pareja está llena de afectaciones (la profesión rebuscada, las líneas).” read more

fernando posted a review of The Apostate

“No está mal, salvo actores más o menos débiles, como el director. De todos modos, el protagonista luce una aniñada provocación hacia el mundo que es lo mejor. Final redondito.” read more

“Thriller antisistema con una protagonista sobregirada pero coherente en su moralidad. El hijo adolescente le hace buen contrapunto con su indolencia, que resulta en sensatez. Lo bueno es que se decanta rápido.” read more
