    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    When the highway becomes a Möbius strip/ Cuando la autopista se vuelve una banda de Möbius

    -Of course. As a matter of fact, I'm there right now.
    -What do you mean? You're where right now?
    -At your house.
    -That's fucking crazy, man.

    One of the first things to be done when performing a psychiatric examination is to determine if the patient is oriented in time, space, and person: what day he lives in, where he is and who he is.…

    Con Almodóvar, o te ríes o lo adoras: ¿Adivinas donde estoy? / With Almodóvar, you either laugh or you adore him: Guess where I am?

    Uffff, hoy en día tengo tres de Almodóvar en mis favoritas de Letterboxd y no es de a gratis. Cosas que me siguen encantando de él:

    -Si vas a hacer drama, hazlo sin miedo y a fondo.

    -Castea talentos geniales y elicita actuaciones deliciosas, particularmente de sus actrices.

    -Particularmente las mujeres en sus filmes siempre…

    The Old Guard

    ★★★

    En Corto/In Summary

    As a premise, it is interesting to consider what would have happened if the characters in Highlander, instead of fighting each other, had allied to try to influence their environment and generate a positive change. Sure, this could be done with political or economic manipulation, but it's much more entertaining and cinematic if they are combat specialists.

    Charlize Theron delivered a terrific role in Atomic Blonde, action-wise, and I was looking forward to something similar. It doesn't…

    Our Father

    ★★½

    En Corto/In Summary

    Visually, this documentary feels very amateurish: the sensationalist style that can be found in any investigative newsreel, the sense of cheap melodrama when Doctor Cline's face is printed several times, the main investigative daughter dressed in a hoodie in some scenes, as if she had become a Karen member of Anonymous. Please.

    But, the editing and the approach to the interviews and progressive revelations, put you in a pretty good neighborhood gossip mood. You want to press…

    "Will you still need me, will you still feed me
    When I'm sixty-four"

    I know, I know, the reviews aren't the best in the world, and I see a lot of 1- and 2-star ratings around here. But heck, it's Shyamalan, and apart from The Last Airbender, there isn't a film by him that I haven't enjoyed on some level. Indeed, it's not arthouse cinema, but the fact remains that he's trying to do things differently from the commercial average,…

    A journey to Europe's pagan and bloody roots/ Un viaje a las raíces paganas y sangrientas de Europa

    My synthesized relationship with Eggers:

    -Watching "The Witch" in the cinema: tremendous cerebral and aesthetic burst. Black Phillip reserves permanent space in my psyche.

    -Watching "The Lighthouse" on streaming: Duel of the best actors, and a surreal feeling that communicates to me intriguing moods, but also, intellectually, a WTF?

    -I longed to see "The Northman," and more so with the cast it…
