    Rosemary's Baby

    ★★★★★

    Rosemary's baby is a film that borders on perfection. This is not a common terror, which usually bets on jump scares. Far from it. Which may displease the average viewer, who generally seeks films that seek an easier-to-entertain narrative, with cheap scares and clichés.

    While conventional horror films momentarily frighten the public, the psychological horror that is found here is guaranteed for much longer, even if it requires a greater intellectual investment from the viewer. Rosemary's baby is a work…

    The Wrestler

    ★★★★★

    In his fourth feature, Aronofsky reaches its climax in ''The Wrestler''. This film has a history not only with good performances, but also very well directed, in an almost documentary tone.

    In fact, it couldn't be different, since the film seems to tell the story of Mickey Rourke himself. In 'The Wrestler'', we accompany a decadent fighter, both in professional and personal life. The tension is growing and from the beginning we fear for the fate of the protagonist, who…

    I've never felt so good about being home. Thank you, Scorsese.
