    A Grand Day Out

    ★★★★½

    A miraculous and super-ambitious clay animation spectacle with a sense of simplicity, humor, attention to detail and adventure that I wholly loved. Unfortunately, I cannot be counted among those that grew up with this incredible pair and I only knew them by the time the feature film was released, but this huge effort with six years over the making paid off fantastically, full of imagination and adorable instances of smiles and creativity.

    It is no easy task to create iconic,…

    Zefiro Torna or Scenes from the Life of George Maciunas (Fluxus)

    ★★★★½

    A kaleidoscopic juxtaposition of the perspective of an artist approaching death from a third-person perspective whose fascination towards George Maciunas was his will to live. Presented as an incurable optimist that saw joy in life's everyday details and anecdotes, and ways of life in social movements, this piece of extremely genius experimental filmmaking disjoints audiovisually what is seen and what is heard.

    Drive

    ★★★★★

    Before you ask, this is not my first Refn movie. In that way, I can know that:

    - He still likes to dress his crooks with light grey pants and have some of them bald, like if they were still living in Denmark.
    - He still uses an awesome techno soundtrack (with some pop touches that I can forgive) to open his films and to close them. The underground nudist dive bars / seedy joints cannot be omitted, of course.…
