La La Land
La La Land is a film like the ones that were done before, but tremendously modern. It is nostalgic, romantic, magical and unique. And it works as a portrait of a generation to that generation that dreams, but gives it all for lost. A push to not give up.A toast to keep on dreaming.
Manchester by the Sea
The great interpretations are not the only thing but summarize the virtues of the film. His visual modesty conveys the feeling that the director protects his characters, respecting their pain, diverting their sight and giving them their space. But he captures them trying to overcome it in a way that is faithful to the life we know, offering a different vision of the family and a beautiful and atypical resolution, which few filmmakers dare to try.
The Cure for Wellness
‘The cure of well-being’ is a true festival of bewilderment that is punctuated, in addition, by a festival of references related to fantastic cinema of all times. The exquisite visual care that frames the entire film in nightmarish sequences, makes it connect with a genuine Gothic philosophy: it is possible to be macabre and beautiful at the same time.
Regardless of the format in which it is seen, ‘Dunkirk’ will not stop being a true masterpiece. His expertise in managing time, his asphyxiating atmosphere, and his magnificent production design, coupled with an impeccable invoice, will continue to shape one of the most important films of the century.
‘Moonlight’ is a fascinating portrait of the male fragility that knows how to use all the problems that plague its protagonist to offer a portrait as delicate as interesting of its life evolution. It perfectly combines the realistic touch with a lyrical element that is enhanced as the occasion requires. A unique movie that showcases a topic that is often not explored.
Guardians of the Galaxy
James Gunn has achieved the unthinkable: overcome his previous success. Not only has the humor and the amusingness of the original, it is more mature and exciting. You feel that James Gunn has supervised and taken care of every detail; Marvel has given him more freedom and more money, and it shows. It’s everything you dream when they sell you an author overproduction. A unique adventure, everything we can ask of Hollywood and more.
The first film by Jordan Peele recovers the symbolic potential of genre film to throw the viewer a sour reflection on racial prejudice, collecting the witness of dozens of horror films with a satirical message that has preceded him with some visual findings of an experienced teacher.
‘Logan’ is a sensational film that manages to be placed in the Olympus of cinema with superheroes reserved so far for titles like ‘The Protected’ (‘Unbreakable’), ‘The Incredibles’ and ‘The Dark Knight’. All of them very different from each other and that is something that is preserved with the addition of the farewell of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.
A Ghost Story
A tremendously catholic and personal work.Reserved for open viewers, eager to make an effort to capture details of the plans while reflecting a little on the meaning of life after death. It is a very interesting experimental piece, different in its intentions and fascinating in its beautiful composition of square frames.
