    Used to direct crime pictures,after The Gentlemen,Guy Ritchie returned to his most popular function,and he doesn't dedicate to such genre for nothing,the way how he coordinate a story is eventually unique,the fascinating fact is that there's no some feature able to equate a movie with another,the most of them is comical as well,but there are countless examples putting both genres together,he's not the only one doing that,an exception is his year's release,prioritizing thriller and especially action,honestly speaking,during the first act…

    "The marathon goes on...and on...and on"

    I'm impressed by the society concept being exposed in that bizarre dance marathon,the social criticism are cleverly well created,the multiples interpretations caused by the metaphorical language are cunning and an impacting aspect,when I noticed that the contest would be approached during all the movie,I thought it would be tiring or something like that,but every detail becomes it so intriguing that its length demonstrates dynamic,none dialogue is unnecessarily long,they're fundamental to each new increment.Gloria is…

    Bill Murray is great here,his role believing all the time to be participating in a staging yielded successful funny consequences,they trying to get out of trouble is another thing accomplished with creativity,sometimes being even cruelty sarcastic due to fatality of some specific scenes,besides being grumpy such as he is known.However there's no any remarkable,it just follows an apparent predetermined linearity,what harmed its engaging content conducted with insight by the director.

    A modern version of German history written by the Brothers Grimm,all the time there's a doubt about Auntie Roo's principals (a I confess that it tricked me),Shelley Winters as usual is extremely convincing,her character for sure was a defiant mission because the phases experienced by the apparently nice lady are pretty distinguished,it's ironical that in the same year The Poseidon Adventure came out,but she performed an unforgettable woman who anyone would like to have as a friend.Execution of the screenplay…

    Being a love story about couple who just met each other this really effective,besides the screenplay developing its characters in a solid and believable way,I think it's relevant to mention the suggestive camera angles,they were always dedicating focus on a possible romantic plot,a particular take on the street while a crowd was walking near to the two musicians is beautifully spontaneous,however,as a overall story,it didn't engage me during most part of its two last act,not even the execution of the songs did it,they're too monotonous,without any differentiated attractive,always following the same concept.

    Before Maniac (1980) and Angst,one of the pioneers of the genre had already shown us the perspective of a villain,in both cases each serial killer has a limited number of lines,and their victims are exclusively women,but in this one there's a differential: he is a vampire! It's very effective as a horror released in a decade where from then on the genre would never be the same,because of that,peculiarities are obvious,emphasizing the fact of a mythical creature living next to…
