    Alien: Covenant

    ★★★★½

    Adorei. O filme não traz nada de novo, e acaba por deixar a questão principal sem resposta, ou seja, quem são os Engenheiros. Por outro lado, avança-se um pouco mais no desvendar sobre a origem do Alien, e do papel da IA nessa origem. Falta o terceiro filme, para dar a resposta final

  • The Intern

    The Intern

    ★★★½

    Good social intentions, a bit mixed up, even so lifting enough in current times.

    Father and Daughter

    ★★★★★

    An absolute gem from the world of short animation. Belongs to my all time Top 3. Touches your heart, lasting longer than most movie features.

  • Satantango

    Satantango

    ★★★★★

    Mesmerising black-and-white cinematography, hypnotic rhythm made of ultra-long shots moving in slow zooms and pans, all enveloped by an ominous music and constant rain. “Satantango” is an eerily artefact, that moves our inner feelings, even when you don't fully comprehend what’s going on in the screen.
    Throughout seven hours we’re invited to enter a place in a specific time (1980’s) and geography (Hungary), but that seems more like a parallel and impossible world dimension.
    If you accept to dance the tango, you’ll not be able to give up.
