    I tell people my favorite movie of all time is “The Soft Skin” and they’re rather surprised by it or confused since they either don’t know what the movie is or think liking this movie that much is inferior compared to the other works of director Francois Truffaut (which I also enjoy very much). 

    The Soft Skin for me felt like something out of this world. Something from another dimension perhaps. The way it builds up and the way it…

    If you've been living under a rock or just had never given it a thought; Christian Gonzalez's Mujeres De Medianoche (1990) is a remake of an old comedy movie from 1956 entitled “El Chismoso De La Ventana” (aka "The Window Gossip").

Ever wonder who these people are? What are their names? What do they do when they're not dancing? Do you really want to know?

    In the opening of…
