    Another Round

    The characters deserved that beautiful ending. Perhaps the great lesson of this film is that death is certain, but happiness is not.

  • Blow-Up

    Blow-Up

    ★★★★½

    Blow-Up is misunderstood by many, and because of this it is often considered average or even hated. Which is a great injustice, but understandable because it is a purposefully complex film.

    In the film we follow an ordinary day in the life of Thomas, a bored photographer, who randomly decides to go and take pictures in a park. Later on analyzing them in his studio, giving a Blow-Up, he believes he accidentally took a picture of a murder. Finally, something…

    In his filmography, usually performed by women (and strong), the filmmaker this time makes an exception and leaves the female characters in the background, curiously reaching his masterpiece in this film.

    With a perfect script, which deservedly won the…

    I've never felt so good about being home. Thank you, Scorsese.

  • Never Rarely Sometimes Always

    Never Rarely Sometimes Always

    Never Rarely Sometimes Always is a beautiful, simple and frighteningly realistic film. And also, it has a powerful performance by its protagonist (Sidney Flanigan).

    The film follows the line of the sentence: ''nothing says more than the sound of silence''. And it is extremely effective in its proposal. The script matches well with the almost documentary direction, as it is an extremely ''real'' plot.

    This work does with excellence what I believe to be the main function of cinema: putting…
