    In The Heights

    ★★★

    La bonita cinematografía y muchas canciones verdaderamente espectaculares no logran salvar la película de una historia incongruente, ideología política condescendientemente encastrada con la menor gracia y sutileza posible, y el gigantesco ego de Lin Manuel Miranda que a toda costa necesita ser el centro de atención.

    ★★★★½

    I watched parts of this a few years ago with my parents (big oof) but didn't finish it for obvious reasons.

    The Father

    ★★★★

    Florian Zeller's The Father is a painfully accurate depiction of the mental decaying that comes with old age, and is as uncomfortable and anxiety-inducing, as spellbinding and natural. A film with a distinctive European style to it, that comfortably leans on acute dialogue and masterful performances by its lead actors.

    One of the most interesting pictures of last year and, once again, a deserved Oscar contender.
