    The Woman in Black

    ★★★½

    Taking its premises from Susan Hill's renowned ghost story, The Woman in Black is a suggestive adaptation for British television, written by Nigel Kneale. Despite some narrative variations from the paper source (especially in the final), the 1989 film maintains the typical gothic atmosphere thanks to the suggestive setting of the Victorian mansion next to a decadent graveyard and the gloomy marsh.
    The title character, the Woman in Black (played by Pauline Moran, widely known for her interpretation of Miss…

    ★★★

    Through a long shot in real time that extends to the whole length of the movie, we witness a service night at a top-notch restaurant where its microcosm made by demanding clients, rookie waitpersons, inexperienced or on the verge of burnout staff, come together to the inevitable collapse.

What's missing the most is the focus on what should be the prominent characteristic of a film set in a restaurant: the food.

    The Sadness

    ★★★½

    Ah, Canadian directors always have that spark of insanity that brings them to this kind of fucked up films! This happens with The Sadness, Taiwanese by production and setting but with heart and brain in Canada as there's Rob Jabbaz behind the script. Actually, about the story, there's not much to talk about, if not to point out that it is the umpteenth zombie flick with a focus on some recent pandemic aspects such as the misleading of the socials…
