    "Better to be king for a night than schmuck for a lifetime"

    For sure, "The King of Comedy" is among the best Scorsese films I've seen... it was a pleasant surprise, because I didn't expect all this. Starting with the impeccable performance of Robert De Niro, it is even a little redundant to say this (since he always performs well), but here he delivers one of his most outstanding performances. Rupert Pupkin is a character that won me over right…

    Among the genres that Pedro AlmodΓ³var has worked on, "Parallel Mothers (2021)" joins the drama group, alongside "The Flower of My Secret (1995)", "Bad Education (2004)", "Volver (2006)" and "All About My Mother (1999)", which were the most dramatic I've seen of him.

    The photography, the use of colors, the framing, the setting, the costumes and the homage to the 60s... I thought all of this was impeccable. The chemistry of actresses Thomasin McKenzie and Anya Taylor-Joy is also another highlight. As much as they barely interact directly, I felt a very strong connection between the two (and that was essential). But I had a little disappointment with the third act, because until then, the film had been on a very good development.…
