    ★★★★★

    PHANTOM THREAD is not what I expected. It blew a lot my expectations, I never knew there was a movie so perfect like this one.

    Perfect I said? YEAH!! Daniel Day Lewis as Reynolds Woodcock is phenomenal. He did a marvelous job as this costume designer with ambition and obsessiveness personality. Vicky Krieps as Alma is a strong female lead in the movie. She was magnificent. Her character’s emotions, desire to be loved really impact me as a viewer and…

    CRITERION COLLECTION SPINE #1035


    COME AND SEE is a war film with elements of realism, loss of innocence of a young man, brutal, honest and powerful. The Hollywood war films are fairy tales if we compare those productions with this one. I loved the main character young Florya. Florya in search of hope, he is stagnant with the conflict situation and surviving around his hometown village with the Nazi German soldiers occupying Belarus, doing a lot of massacres. This war…

    DIRECTOR’S CUT

    This version of MIDSOMMAR was really good. So much slow pacing that for me did not worked as the theatrical version, but the rest is still haunting and great. I keep praising Florence Pugh’s performance because her character still provided the emotions and maintained the climax on top of the film impeccably. Also, the cinematography from Pawel Pogorzelski, who did a terrific job with loving shots of Swedish landscapes, but also, grisly ones defining how grotesque horror is,…

    Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown

    ★★★★½

    CRITERION COLLECTION SPINE #855


    WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN is this 1980s retro-sitcom movie that every cinephile should watch. The movie is about Pepa, a woman who shares her work with Iván, who is her lover too, and he decided to leave Pepa without saying anything while Pepa investigates if he went to his wife. All the plot turns on Pepa knowing that Iván was not with his wife and he is with a third woman. Also,…

    The Stunt Double

    ★★★½

    I wanted to watch this for 4 reasons:

    1) How Vertical Cinema looks like
    2) Apple Co. is involved
    3) IS DAMIEN CHAZELLE
    4) Stunts rights

    An American Pickle

    ★★★

    AN AMERICAN PICKLE had this shimmering dual performance by Seth Rogen in a ridiculous comedy gone out fashioned. The story was not serious and nothing relevant for be remembered. I liked Rogen saving both characters because he was a different man, his opposite, not how we used to see him in R rated vulgarities before. The movie had good messages and all but with a generic piece of no-brainer. People can watch with families this movie with Rogen doing his…
