                           Life is the purpose 



    A journey through the human psyche, our yearnings, anxieties, our deepest and darkest fears and the purposes of life. Add to that the theme of life after death, culturally different within each type of society and always discussed with caution and the mission of each one in the universe. All of this in a cinematographic style that keeps Pixar at the highest level: it manages…

    Steamboat Bill, Jr.

    ★★★½

    I'll run on this river if I'm the only passenger on the boat.

    Passive ingenuity of Keaton's character mixed with his traditional physical humor, in a troubled and comical relationship established between father and son.

    The paternal figure, always imposing in the plot, contrasts with a Bill Jr. (Keaton) who does not seem to suit the wishes of his parent, and this gives a tone of comedy to the film, while also fills the screen with a…

    Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans

    For wherever the sun rises and sets, in the city's turmoil or under the open sky on the farm, life is much the same; sometimes bitter, sometimes sweet.

    Murnau goes headlong into the theme of conjugal infidelity, exploring a George O'Brien stunned by the ghosts of infidelity.

    Incredible work by the classic German director who manages to bring an extremely realistic subject and explores it within a film surrounded by the plasticity and surrealism of German expressionism, bordering…

    Say, Mr. Detective, before clearing up any mystery, clear this theater!

    A letter of love and homage to the seventh art

    Any ordinary man who sees his life fail before his eyes would want to be a movie star or an important personality. Within popular culture and imagination, being compared to Sherlkock Holmes is synonymous with intelligence, audacity and inventiveness, characteristics that can clearly describe what Keaton did in 45 minutes of film.

    The Trial of the Chicago 7

    ★★★

    Lady justice has been raped, truth assassin
    Rolls of red tape seal your lips, now you're done in

    Sorkin had the courage to make a film about one of the most important trials in history, which was totally rooted in the political context in which the United States was at that time, as well as the whole world. A meaningless war about to explode, movements calling for civil rights and an end to racial segregation and protests around the world.
