    "Will you still need me, will you still feed me
    When I'm sixty-four"

    I know, I know, the reviews aren't the best in the world, and I see a lot of 1- and 2-star ratings around here. But heck, it's Shyamalan, and apart from The Last Airbender, there isn't a film by him that I haven't enjoyed on some level. Indeed, it's not arthouse cinema, but the fact remains that he's trying to do things differently from the commercial average,…

    ¿Candyman x 5? I don’t think so…

    Between economy and pandemic, I'm thinking a lot about which movies to see in person at the cinema. This time we indulged ourselves and it was worth it. Here the director focuses a lot on the architectural compositions of Chicago, lots of play of angles and colors with the camera, and a social/racial tension that, far from being an underlying discourse, has become so urgent in America that it screams for attention.

    An innocuous adventure / Una aventura inocua

    In my humble opinion, whenever you decide to make a movie centered on kids or tweens, it floats or sinks with the charisma of the young actors. Here at least, there is nothing to fear. The three kids at the center are likable and funny, particularly when interacting with their mothers and grandmothers, emphasizing the particular dynamics in the Latino and African-American communities.

    The vampires are, in fact, rather incidental - the real…

    Some thoughts on Run: / Algunas ideas sobre Run:

    -What if some of the ideas that jump out at us in that emotional extremism of adolescence, turn out to be true? What if indeed, Mom doesn't want us to ever leave the nest? What if indeed, they are willing to make us suffer, just to meet their selfish needs? What if they'd rather see us hurt? What if the core of the most important relationship is rotten?

    -Sarah Paulson is…

    Incarnation of an 80's album cover/Encarnación de portada de disco ochentero

    There are many things to acknowledge about Master Miller:

    - The production, massive and detailed at the same time
    - Rescuing the stuntwork and minimizing CGI
    - The post-apocalyptic world-building, largely through the language and rituals of the characters, without the need for in-depth flashbacks.- The visual design of each character is characteristic and striking, to the extent that it looks like animé.
    - The handling of framing and…

    El cuerpo y la identidad / Body and Identity

    Ante la ausencia de sentido, de identidad, de identificación parental y social, nuestro protagonista, alienado, necesita inventarse formas de sentir su propia existencia.

    El permiso social del llanto en los grupos de apoyo, la cercanía de la muerte en el otro que le hace apreciar el simple hecho de estar vivo, se vuelve su primer refugio, su primer invención/reinvención.

    Anhela la muerte, el dolor, la catástrofe, como una forma de romper…
