Cinéfilo 2018

Otra tanda de películas vistas y las anotadas para ver en un futuro.

No hay grandes descubrimientos pero las cuatro +1 que hay son sólidas.

  • Casi leyendas: -0. Tiene sus partes simpáticas y emotivas, y muchos chistes hacen reir. Pero es demasiado "liviana", casi transparente.

  • Collateral Beauty: +1. Hermosa película sobre la complejidad en algunos casos de lidiar con el tiempo, el amor y la muerte.

  • Dunkirk: -0. No está del todo mal... pero no me gustan las pelis de guerra, no me atrae casi nada, lo desastroso de todo alrededor, conceptualmente, hace que no llegue a ver lo interesante...

  • Ghost of New Orleans: +0. Arranca casi como un cliché caminando, pero después pega algunos giros interesantes que hace que valga la pena.

  • Girl on a Bicycle: +0. Es una comedia romántica tontona, pero linda y divertida, tiene puntos extras por estar hablada todo el tiempo en una mezcla de inglés, alemán, italiano y francés :).

  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: -0. Tiene sus momentos, pero hay una cadencia de chistes o gags que no terminan de ser graciosos, y la película no es mucho más que eso...

  • Kiki, Love to Love: +0. Comedia liviana pero divertida con eje en distintas parafilias.

  • Life: +1. Una visión diferente sobre el encuentro de la raza humana con otra vida, en una peli con giros raros, pero no clásicos.

  • Logan: +1. Me gustó mucho, por todo el lado "real" del asunto; no es una peli de superheroes, es una película dramática normal donde un par son mutantes (y obvio, tiene mucha acción y violencia, pero lo que rescato es lo otro).

  • Passage to Mars: +1. Es un documental, un poco lento a veces, pero si te interesa como es la exploración de verdad, imperdible.

  • Personal Shopper: -0. Con partes muy interesantes, y una historia que está bien, pero medio inconexa, muchos agujeros, y le falta como un cierre o propósito.

  • Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales: -0. Me aburrió bastante. Es más de lo mismo, no hay nada nada nuevo :(

  • Spider-Man: Homecoming: +0. Divertida, no mucho más. 100% pochoclera.

  • T2 Trainspotting: +1. Muy buena música, muy buena fotografía. La historia también está muy bien, pero no sé si se entiende todo si no viste la primera.

  • The Red Turtle: -0. Es linda, pero muy lenta! Nos costó llegar hasta el final :/

  • Thor: Ragnarok: +0. La típica de acción de superheroes, pero me divertí bastante, estuvo buena :)

  • Vampyres: -1. No encontré nada nuevo, ni la terminé de ver aburrido de los sinsentidos de la trama y lo malo de las actuaciones.

La desolación, en el Ártico o en Marte

Estas son las nuevas anotadas. Estoy viendo que desde hace un tiempo estoy incorporando bastante películas "no en inglés", pero más que nada porque escucho de ellas! Esto es parte de las mejoras que hablé en algún otro post sobre donde encontrar trailers... que todavía no es perfecto, sin embargo... que me estoy perdiendo trailers (como el de "First man", acá abajo, que me la recomendó Chaghi), pero prefiero perderme trailers de películas mainstream, que luego me entero por otro lado, que de películas menos promocionadas...

  • Camarón: Flamenco y Revolución: (2018; Documentary) - [D: Alexis Morante; A: Camarón de la Isla, Juan Diego]

  • Chavela: (2017; Documentary, Biography, History, Music) Through its lyrical structure, Chavela will take viewers on an evocative, thought-provoking journey through the iconoclastic life of game-changing artist Chavela Vargas. Centered around never before-seen interview footage of Chavela shot 20 years before her death in 2012, and guided by the stories in Chavela's songs, and the myths and tales others have told about her - as well as those she spread about herself - the film weaves an arresting portrait of a woman who dared to dress, speak, sing, and dream her unique life into being.::Aubin Pictures [D: Catherine Gund, Daresha Kyi; A: Pedro Almodóvar, Elena Benarroch, Miguel Bosé]

  • Eva: (2011; Drama, Fantasy, Sci-Fi) Set in 2041, Alex Garel is a well-known robot programmer who after 10 years returns to his home town to work in his old university when his friend Julia brings him a project to create a new line of robot child. There Alex meets his brother David, Lana (Alex's former lover and David's current wife), and Eva, Alex's 10-years-old niece. Looking for inspiration, Alex asks Eva to be the muse of the new robot, watching her attitude and behavior during the time they spend together, making emotional tests to configure its personality. The relationship with his niece gives Alex doubts about finishing the project and awakens old feelings for Lana. At the same time he starts suspecting that perhaps the lovely and imaginative Eva is hiding an important secret about Lana and herself.::Chockys [D: Kike Maíllo; A: Daniel Brühl, Marta Etura, Alberto Ammann]

  • Extraordinary Tales: (2013; Animation, Horror, Mystery) An animated anthology of five tales adapted from Edgar Allan Poe's stories. [D: Raul Garcia; A: Christopher Lee, Bela Lugosi, Julian Sands]

  • The Quietude: (2018; Drama, Thriller) Two sisters, as close as they are different, find themselves after a long separation. [D: Pablo Trapero; A: Martina Gusman, Bérénice Bejo, Edgar Ramírez]

  • Perfect Strangers: (2016; Comedy, Drama) On a warm summer evening, the loving couple of Rocco, a plastic surgeon, and Eva, a therapist, are expecting their good friends to share a pleasant evening over dinner. Everything is in order: The first course is ready, the roast is in the oven, the table is set, and without a doubt, this is going to be a gathering of true friends. Before long, the group will begin the feast; however, in this nice but somewhat ordinary dinner, there's certainly something missing. Perhaps, if everyone placed their mobile phones on the table--and like a dangerous Russian roulette--shared whatever arrived (texts, WhatsApp messages and calls), it would spice things up. Clearly, this uncommon truth-or-dare game has no point among friends who share everything with each other; nevertheless, when the phones start ringing, who will be the one with the sweatiest palms?::Nick Riganas [D: Paolo Genovese; A: Giuseppe Battiston, Anna Foglietta, Marco Giallini]

  • Sicario: (2015; Action, Crime, Drama, Mystery, Thriller) When drug violence worsens on the USA Mexico border, the FBI sends an idealistic agent, Kate Macer (Emily Blunt) on a mission to eradicate a drug cartel responsible for a bomb that had killed members of her team.::Gusde [D: Denis Villeneuve; A: Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin]

  • Temple Grandin: (2010; Biography, Drama) Biopic of Temple Grandin, an autistic woman who overcame the limitations imposed on her by her condition to become a Ph.D. and expert in the field of animal husbandry. She developed an interest in cattle early in life while spending time at her Aunt and Uncle's ranch. She did not speak until age four and had difficulty right through high school, mostly in dealing with people. Her mother was very supportive as were some of her teachers. She is noted for creating her "hug box", widely recognized today as a way of relieving stress in autistic children, and her humane design for the treatment of cattle in processing plants, which have been the subject of several books and won an award from PETA. Today, she is a professor at Colorado State University and well-known speaker on autism and animal handling.::garykmcd [D: Mick Jackson; A: Claire Danes, Julia Ormond, David Strathairn]
