Never before had cinema presented such an effective, original and cinematically influential perspective concerning the Second World War. Extensive Greek master Theodoros Angelopoulos achieves international attention thanks to his second and best chapter in A Trilogy of History, one of the most ambitious films in the entire history of moviemaking, and undeniably one of the best and most powerful war films of all time. The mysticism is overabundant, the technical…
The one and only celluloid project that silenced a shocked audience with an angry and disappointed Angelopoulos not winning the Palme d'Or at Cannes, Ulysses' Gaze is one of the most beautiful and honest love letters to the cathartic power of cinema as an art form in the individual.
The "film" that 'A' is seeking symbolizes that such film will exist as long as the director is aware of the existence of his audience first, and the existence of the…
Even the title wasn't translated and was left in its Brazilian sexiness!
José "Zé" Carioca was created by Brazilian cartoonist José Carlos de Brito, and it is one of the characters I wished strongly had kept alive in the immortal, classic Disney canon collection such as Mickey, Donald and Goofy. A predecessor for the technically landmark exercise that would be later known as The Three Caballeros (1944), which only fatal flaw was to improperly show Latin American cultures…
Hysterically stereotypical in its "educational" purposes regarding Latin American outfits; it's a slapstick show that improvises for 7 minutes and becomes really boring. Goofy's personality is the one that saves this from doom, and the slow-motion parody gimmick is the one that worked most effectively, which is, of course, the joke least related to the culture it is actually trying to portray.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

Imagine that Luis Buñuel and David Lynch had intense homosexual encounters in a cheap motel in Tokyo under the influence of hallucinogens. Imagine that, after that, both (yes, both) conceived a single son. Finally, imagine that the aforementioned son made a movie and that every single scene in that movie was directed by him when he had an orgasm smoking opium.
That's Tetsuo, the true Iron Man, so the hell with the Marvel character. Tsukamoto takes us back to the…
