    Argentina, 1985

    ★★★★½

    In SPANISH and ENGLISH

    Argentina, 1985 es un drama judicial absolutamente emocionante que se apoya en un guión ameno que relata un acontecimiento tan histórico en la historia de la nación sudamericana.

    Mario Llinás y el director Santiago Mitre coescribieron un guion perfecto con un excelente balance. No se desperdicia ni una palabra y cada escena está bien distribuida con paciencia y cuidado meticuloso a lo largo de sus 140 minutos de duración.

    Para mí, tenía esas vibras de Spotlight

  • The Banshees of Inisherin

    The Banshees of Inisherin

    ★★★★½

    The Banshees of Inisherin plays like a Greek tragedy, while reciting lines from a downright hilarious screenplay. A more streamlined work from Martin McDonagh than his previous films.

    True to McDonagh form, this film gets darker by the minute.

    Set in the early 1920s, the themes of friendship, grief, and the prospect of letting go are incredibly relatable. The island setting is as much a character as any.

    The Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson pairing mark as another home run; top not performances by each.

    Kerry Condon's Siobhán is the rock of this movie. As key, if not vital, as any character in this film.

  • Beverly Hills Cop

    Beverly Hills Cop

    ★★★★

    BLINDSPOT ADDRESSED

    Beverly Hills Cop is a showcase of peak Eddie Murphy.

    I heard someone once describe Mr. Murphy's Axel Foley as "Bugs Bunny". I say that's a perfect description. He's the smartest guy in every room, his cleverness levels are well above everyone else's. And everything he does, it's done with gusto and gold humor.

    The story isn't great. If not for Murphy, this would be a cheap B-movie or a cutting room floor Hill Street Blues episode.

    I also quite enjoyed Judge Reinhold's character; the token simpleton and a funny naiveté.

  • Aftersun

    Aftersun

    ★★★½

    The way Aftersun uses the concept of the flashback is quite brilliant. We see the greatest memory of a woman's life with her father through her eyes. Strong filmmaking and writing by one Charlotte Wells.

    I must admit, some of the key plot points went completely over my head. So much so, that I needed to read some reviews on Letterboxd to understand something.

    I don't think this film's slow pace is to its detriment. But the performances by Frankie…

    Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

    ★★★★½

    Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery provided another whimsical canvas for writer/director Johnson to sling an oddball murder mystery in a more than worthy follow up to Knives Out.

    Some of the nuance fades a bit in this chapter, but a new cast and twisty story make for a fun and entertaining viewing. This takes bigger swings and most of them land flush.

    There's more focus on the characters and much less about the story and mystery, which, for me,…

  • Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    ★★★★

    Ryan Coogler had to make the ultimate lemonade after so much went awry behind the scenes; none worse than the passing of Chadwick Boseman.

    The pivot and course correction resulted in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever being, in my view, the strongest Marvel film post-Endgame. It achieves that on the fact that it doesn't rely on Infinity War/Endgame ramifications alone.

    With the loss of its lead actor, this had the chance to make it about the women of Wakanda and they…
