The TFL Film Parade interview: Juanjo Giménez on Out of Sync

How does neurodiversity or sensory impairment affect the life of people? Recent global events made many of us familiar with the malfunction of one or two of our beloved 5 senses, and while film has not managed to incorporate smell or taste (yet), efforts have been made to translate a certain haptic perception, most notably by the fellows at the Harvard Sensory Lab.

Eu gostei muito de Medusa, o filme é tecnicamente formidável, as atuações são ótimas e toda a temática apesar de ser didática demais, é necessária e interessante

Religious girls be vicious as hell. Somehow the very real serial killer from her previous feature Kill Me Please seems less scary now. Mean and haunting and enjoyable. At least now I know how to take the perfect Christian selfie such as how the Myspace angle must be avoided because "who are we to mimic God's gaze, anyway?" Believe me, readers, I cackled. Was thoroughly fascinated by how Medusa blends into Brazil's own socio-economic horrors. A little ham and obvious…

The lobster will be proud of this. 
OCD people will have a nightmare though.

An incredibly strong concept, but in execution it's unfortunately humorless and portrays the female character's misery from such a distance that she is ultimately never fully realized.

Based on the little bit I'd read about Feathers (the 2021 Cannes Critics' Week winner), I expected a comedy. And I suppose an argument could be made for Feathers as a pitch-black comedic enterprise, if you've got a cruel sense of humor. It's committed to a bitter absurdism, introducing the suggestion of magic and/or the supernatural to induce a slow, grinding, Kafkaesque nightmare. If Herzog hadn't already used the title Every Man for Himself and God Against All, it…

"Drawing from transcripts of the 2016 trial of a Senegal-born Frenchwoman who drowned her fifteen-month-old daughter and subsequently claimed in court that a spell had been put on her, Alice Diop’s Saint Omer (2022), like Bertrand Bonello’s Zombi Child (2019), treats the unaccountable power of witchcraft as a metaphor for the liminal sinkhole between the West and its former colonies."

La tentazione di citare Borges davanti a film argentini è in me sempre latente, quasi un tic, ma qui direi che ci vuole proprio.
Un'esperienza, la visione di questo film, che mi ha restituito un senso di piacevolezza, di fascinazione, di mistero, di gusto per l'affabulazione, che si trova proprio nei racconti di Borges che ho sempre amato e che spesso ricerco nel cinema.
Datemene di più.
