  • Pacifiction


    As a strange (and exotic) combination of espionage thriller and contemplative cinema, the film digresses much like its puzzling protagonist while trying to seem like it cares, improvising as it goes and testing the viewer’s patience without getting anywhere or finding a focus. What a drag.

    Blue Beetle


    An adolescent superhero movie with an incompetent protagonist, a messy concept, and an even messier execution that gets lost between shameless melodrama and shitty humor. Besides, there is no fun in seeing a stereotypical family of Mexicans who are more like loud caricatures than anything else.

    The Handmaiden


    Park Chan-Wook explores the power of narrative (the way you tell a story and its ramifications), creating another astounding visual spectacle full of dark humor, sexual desire, betrayal and revenge, with intense performances and a wonderful production design, editing and score.

    If there is anything more terrifying than alien body snatchers, it’s our own dark sides crawling out of our depths to take our places in society, and Peele creates an intelligent allegory replete with symbolism of how today’s ‘US’ is making this red chain of madness all the more possible.
