  • The Ascent

    The Ascent

    ★★★★½

    “I know what a human being really is. And you’ll find out too.”


    Don’t leave me in this infinite whiteness. Stare into my soul, I’m here. Save me or take me. Have mercy.

  • A Cop Movie

    A Cop Movie

    ★★★★

    “¿Sí parezco policía?”


    En todas sus facetas, estilos y matices (que son bastantes), y sobre todo en la fluida convergencia de estos, una edición tremenda. Sin duda, la película mejor editada del año.

    Genial desde su concepción, elección del título, formalismos y hasta en sus aparentemente pequeños detalles como el sonido de las sirenas. Muy Kiarostamiesca en sus curiosas navegaciones por las líneas de lo humano y de la recreación; y hasta Fielderiana en sus bastos jugueteos metaficcionales y tragicómicos que realmente te dejan pensando sobre el policía mexicano como un incomprendido icono y lo que representa. Que chido está esto.

    Minari

    ★★★★

    “It grows anywhere, like weeds.”


    Minari is filmed like a memory. It’s on the riverbed of a carefully manufactured mise-en-scène that all the film’s sincere sentiment finds the force for its stream.

    Funny, heart-rending and quite often, both at the same time. Chung’s film overflows with authenticity, from its honest performances and beautiful score to its story of losing your place in your family while looking for one in a new country.

    The most American film of 2020.

  • I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★★

    “You can’t fake a thought.”


    Unapologetic and authentic, marvelously dizzying, suffocating and hypnotic (thematically, visually and structurally). So, a Kaufman. But, with the difference that this one drops everything that’s not intrinsically ineffable and/or invisible.

    Makes narrative its bitch even more so than any other of his films, which already seemed impossible. A stunning delirium like nothing else. Tells a story that didn’t even begin in the first place.
