    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    BEFORE SUNSET is just perfection and cinema at its finest, just like previous movie, Before Sunrise. In this case we saw Jesse and Celine reunited nine years after the events of Sunrise. This time with more honesty between the characters’ dialogue, but so excessive telling their insecurities, life decisions, frustrations and loneliness. At the same time, both characters are obliquely telling their feelings that are still there after nine years without seeing themselves. 

    Richard Linklater made the screenplay with both…

    CRITERION COLLECTION SPINE #888

    STALKER is the poetic, philosophical, ambitious, unique sci-fi that I didn’t expect from acclaimed Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky.

Still, the film is built with care using fidelity to the Frank Herbert’s original novel and preparing for a second part that I need ASAP. I am so lucky to watch this movie in IMAX. What a spectacle. Hans Zimmer’s score is maybe his best work. Denis Villeneuve just did…

    NOMADLAND is emotional, natural, deep, and is a movie with which I can connect with the real definition of empathy. Watching this I felt I was receiving a warm hug of the characters, who looked like they were just acting and it was more than that. Chloé Zhao’s human work of art that pushes us to keep going to be heartfelt about every scene in our lives, including the portrayal of every single person going through needs. Her direction is…
