    Caro diario

    ★★★★★

    An act of self-love extrapolated to a love for all things lived. The most realized version of Moretti's project, as he writes with his camera a cinematic diary that is comprised of pure personal gestures given resonance by their public exposure. Its brilliance is laid in the first chapter, which serves to encapsulate the two that will proceed. Initially living freely, exploring places and the history they conceal. But confronting that history is also confronting mortality, reason why it closes…

  • Shoah

    Shoah

    ★★★★★

    History rejected of its studied disconnection, its impersonal abstraction. History as a permanent, ever-shaping ghost that lingers on the people, on the objects, on the buildings, and on the landscape. It gives a face to the figures and statistics, identifies them, and permits room for expression of how this historical event so trivialized interpellates personally the most humble of people. There isn’t a history, but a multiplicity of histories interpreted and directly experienced in different forms. It is a massive…

    The Innocents

    ★★★★½

    Kiyoshi Kurosawa comentaba respecto a la obra de Jack Clayton que era la primera vez en el cine que se lograba hacer visible una existencia incierta; dotarle materialidad innegable a lo fantasmal. Una apreciación con su nivel de precisión a la hora de describir la integración de los espectros al encuadre y al entorno de la mano de la cámara de Freddie Francis. No obstante, parte de la intriga que hace a The Innocents tan lúcida es cómo, a partir…

  • Halloween Kills

    Halloween Kills

    David Gordon Green once again proves his dramatic illiteracy when helming the iconic horror franchise with Halloween Kills, as few this year have been this inept when defining the interaction of the different lines of action and the general movement.

    Maybe it is due to the inadequate montage whenever it requires to reassume to another drama befalling simultaneously. However, there's an immense absence of escalation ingrained in the screenplay, a monotony to its attractions structure deluding the coral conflict between…

    The Suicide Squad

    The following speech features spoilers on the film discussed in question.

    There is no case for comparisons between this newest entry in the vaguely cohesive extended universe of DC and its infamous predecessor due to the abysmal difference in the leagues they are playing. Ayer's version of the property barely qualifies for the minimum required to move like genuine film production, so any sense of the most mechanical efficiency in assembling actions through montage or articulating a comprehensible line for…

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★½

    Inevitable spoilers will be present in this piece of writings, so read with precaution.

    I’m Thinking of Ending Things starts with some promising concepts. The brief line in the introduction sequence that states the impossibility of falsifying what goes through your head being one that stands out for me, since it conditions some of the choices that Kaufman then applies for the next sequences. In its use of narration, I am recalled of how last year Ad Astra used internal…
