    Pacifiction

    ★★★

    It is difficult to approach Albert Serra's latest film without taking into account the somewhat immoderate, collective hysteria that accompanied its release by the world of movie critics and the very (very) closed circle of the respectable, true "cinephiles" who live in big cities.

    It is indeed a monstrous work of art, definitely a perfect exemple of what French director François Truffaut used to call "films malades" ("sicked movies").

    Too ambitious, too scattered, over-long to the verge of collapsing on…

    Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio

    ★★★★

    Unlike the very despicable version that Robert Zemeckis made for Disney this year, this new adaptation of the famous tale written by Carlo Collodi offered by director Guillermo Del Toro intends to be an enlightened betrayal of the original work, a mischievous snub to the mythical animated adaptation by Disney in 1940, and above all a reappropriation of the fairy tale in the light of the obsessions of the Mexican filmmaker and his personal torments during the conception of the…

    The trouble with TENET is that its very concept requires…

    Jodorowsky's Dune

    ★★

    As a piece listing countless unverified anecdotes, JODOROWSKY'S DUNE is an entertaining picture that only gives you a glimpse of the crazy, unrealisable movie DUNE by Jodorowsky dreamed to be.

    About historical accuracy however, the documentary fails on many levels, and it feels constantly biaised, blissfully embracing the point of view of the egotic, egocentric, megalomaniac director without offering any counterpoints, including from the perspective of his admiring collaborators.

    The documentary would have be ultimately interesting if it was a…
