    Nightmare Alley is Guillermo Del Toro's homage to the noir genre and it exceeds all expectations. With its stunning cinematography, immersive production design, earnest tone, the film creates a sense of mystery, darkness, and magic juggling between the thin line of truth and lies. Guillermo clearly has great knowledge about this genre, he meticulously follows all the rules that are presented within our tragic characters and intricate plot. It also features a masterful performance from Bradley Cooper. An essential watch.

  • Licorice Pizza

    Licorice Pizza

    ★★★★½

    Full of life, honest, and with an unmatchable vibe.
    Licorice pizza immerses the viewer to its era, introducing multiple characters that bump into our protagonists' journey through life. It's messy, doesn't follow a structure but it really kept my attention throughout, it's tense and intimate with beautiful storytelling and well-written characters that manage to evoke all sorts of emotions from the viewer.
    From a technical point, this movie is flawless, Paul Thomas Anderson really gives a masterclass in filmmaking.
