    Deafening silence / Silencio ensordecedor

    And yes, the blind men and the elephant, where we have different visions, repeating the youthful scream from different angles, different moments, different cities and countries, and yet we fail to apprehend nor learn the totality, the truth, the reality of those who decide that killing and dying is their only answer to the meaning of life.

    The stumbles and blows with which the absent-alcoholized-anesthetized father drives, make us think that at any moment this…

    When the highway becomes a Möbius strip/ Cuando la autopista se vuelve una banda de Möbius

    -Of course. As a matter of fact, I'm there right now.
    -What do you mean? You're where right now?
    -At your house.
    -That's fucking crazy, man.

    One of the first things to be done when performing a psychiatric examination is to determine if the patient is oriented in time, space, and person: what day he lives in, where he is and who he is.…

    The most watched film by student teachers / La película más vista por estudiantes de Pedagogía

    -There are those who land (and stay) in teaching because they have practically no other option. There are those who find it along the way and fall in love. And there are those who see teaching from the beginning as the way to change lives, and generate long-term well-being.

    -Erin Gruwell (Hilary Swank) is one of these teachers, and we follow her from her…

    A tender expression of a painful reality/ Una tierna expresión de una realidad dolorosa

    -A strange combination of a hard look at the terrible circumstances that sometimes befall children, and extreme tenderness at the sincerity with which they express what they think, feel, in the search for contact, friendship and affection.

    -I definitely got the 5 stars out of my gut, because the children's voices, the way they come to conclusions with limited information and experience, is charming.

    -The script…

    "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.
