This movie sucks and not because I watched after West Side Story (I could have watched afterBlack Widow). It sucks because Miranda has no sense of the cinematic space.

Spielberg makes us forget the earlier version from 1961.

Io Sto Bene (2020)
The movie starts off very well and the acting is pretty good, but the shift between past and present doesn't make much sense. Messy, to say the least.

Titane (2021)
A vibrant provocation that ends up as a moving love story with an odd couple of father and daughter ... or son.

Encanto (2021)
Too bad this was Disney's 60th animated movie. A story written under the guidance of the most conventional algorithm and eight perfectly forgettable songs. [Full review in Spanish]

A good social and youth melodrama that cannot and does not want to hide the influence of Abbas Kiarostami's cinema.

A remarkable debut by Mehdi, an extraordinary performance by Sami Bouajila. Of the best of Arab cinema seen last year.

2.5/4
The Power of the Dog, eighth feature film by the Oscar-winning New Zealand filmmaker Jane Campion, belongs to that strange category of films whose hidden meaning is defined in his last scene. Sometimes even in his last image.

A small movie in which apparently not much happens until you realize that everything has happened and that you cannot forget it.

A film that is sometimes difficult to watch and, at the same time, difficult to take your eyes off the screen.

A solid dystopian drama that, as is often the case with formula, is more about the present than the future.

An imaginative and charming film not despite its financial limitations but, in part, because of them.

Multiple movies for one ticket. Some are interesting, others not much. Good musical selection, no doubt.

The Closet (2020)
A solid horror film that also works as a powerful social denunciation. The worst horrors are not supernatural.

What has happened to Hollywood cinema that it seems impossible that a movie like this could be produced today? Spoiler: Hollywood infantilism.

Annette (2021)
What a frustrating movie. I understand why there are people who do not like musicals.

2.5/4
A vibrant and emotional indictment about the consequences of the gig-economy within a middle class family. Loach directs like he's young and pissed off.

Land (2021)
A bland melodrama about a woman who isolates herself in the mountains of Wyoming to seek to survive a certain personal trauma. Impeccable landscape photography, good performances and a real waste of time.

The movie has some good ideas but after the interesting reboot of 2018, this second part of the final (?) Halloween trilogy is a disappointment. But entertaining.

Dune (2021)
A spectacular but empty film. A single scene from David Lynch's failed version - Kenneth McMillan floating in the air and laughing wickedly - is more cinema than this entire movie.

Halloween (2018)

Even at its 80-minute length, the story feels long, especially at the beginning, in its contemplative ramblings.

Dune (1984)
Of course, this movie is very flawed. But Kenneth McMillan laughing, preying on his victims and floating in the air ... I saw this movie at the premiere and I have never forgotten those images.

A movie that could have been made yesterday. The corruption that he portrays is still so rampant and perhaps it is worse because now these types of characters do not have the power they had.

2.5/4
Made over five years, this semi-fictional chronicle about a group of eight Spaniards who pass from adolescence to early youth, ends in the midst of a pandemic. A fascinating time capsule.

Halloween (1978)
Halloween is still the best slasher in movie history.

Didactic and repetitive, although Ben Affleck seems to have had a lot of fun. And the duel is exciting, I have to accept it. But stop mentioning Rashomon, please.

Well directed and with a remarkable performance by Rebeca Hall. Not even the inconsistent ending manages to sink the film.

The most interesting thing is the way in which it underlines the obvious: this whole family is nothing more than a bunch of sociopaths willing to kill each other. They are criminals, but unlike the original Sopranos, they are never that interesting.

Macdonald's rhythm can be confusing: he interrupts himself without any justification, until one realizes that everything is perfectly planned so that the joke settles and we keep laughing while we ruminate on the meaning of its impassive punch-lines.

What is the function of the court jester? Tell the truth. Sure, it makes us laugh too, but the laughter caused by the jester's ridiculous behavior is usually a poisoned apple. Dave Chappelle is a good court jester.

This movie works more like an experimental theater piece. I wish Villaronga had made it that way. In this way, surely I would not have seen it.

Blue Moon (2021)
A well-intentioned film but chaotic in form and substance. What was the San Sebastián Jury thinking?

A prison drama like you have never seen, more interested in the act of telling stories than in the stories that take place inside the prison.

A delirious and exotic melodrama in the best style of Cecil B De Mille where it is clear that there is no possible competition against a self-sacrificing Mexican woman.

The Night (2021)
Although the story is quite derivative - and surely the "fault" of the woman will raise the eyebrows of any feminist in the audience - the truth is that the director Ahari delivers a very effective horror film.

A dark comedy directed with undeniable formal control and a penchant for the strange and unexpected. A cinematic UFO.

What Sachi needs is not our morbid curiosity but our empathy. With her discreet and delicate style, Sugita achieves this goal. You end up wishing the best for that girl; you want to hug her to tell her that everything is going to be okay.

This film directed and edited by Jean-Gabriel Périot, it moves and sways gracefully, crossing the boundaries between personal memory, historical reflection and social chronicle.

Hit the Road (2022)
Panah Panahi is a worthy son of his father but his debut as a filmmaker shows that he is capable of letting go of his father's influence to build his own path. A road movie as funny as it is moving.

Crisis (2021)
Three intersecting stories - in the style of the far superior Traffic - about the opioid pandemic in the United States, directed with skill and with a competent cast. Unfairly relegated by problems not really related to the quality of the film.

CODA (2021)
Not bad, the actors are very convincing but, I insist, is there no way for the gringos to read subtitles and watch the original films? In this case, La famille Bélier, was a much better movie.

2.5/4
Thorough and outrageous dismantling of the ineptitude, incapacity and complicity of the Mexican State in an emblematic case of the unpunished femicide of a young girl and the subsequent triple murder of her mother.
