The Royal Road

Just as she did in her opera prima The Joy of Life, Jenni Olson again performs a masterful combination of an intimate personal story with the greatness of History in capital letters. The Royal Road the title refers to, in the US West Coast, is the actual route that used to connect religious missions between Mexico and San Francisco, and is now the...

The Satellite Girl and Milk Cow

In this charming and fanciful animated tale from South Korean director Chang Hyung-yun, a broken-hearted musician, Kyung-Chun, has been turned into a milk cow. That by itself would be bad enough: He’s also forced to outrun the nefarious Mr. Oh, who’s determined to steal and sell his liver. And in an even more confusing turn of events, K...

Theeb

If you thought adventure films in the style of Kim (1950) or Lawrence of Arabia (1962) were Technicolor-exclusive, think again. Because Theeb tells a coming-of-age tale set in the Hejaz desert (Saudi Arabia) and during WWI. As the world is modified by means of explosions and massacres and the power structures still seek new forms, little Theeb (Ara...

Theory of Obscurity: A Film About The Residents

This is the story of The Residents, a story that spans more than 40 years and is clouded in mystery. Many details surrounding this renegade sound and video collective from San Francisco are secret, including the identities of its members: They always perform wearing masks and costumes. Fortunately for us, The Residents have a management company, Th...

Tira tu reloj al agua (Variaciones sobre una cinegrafía intuida de José Val del Omar)

A free approach to the missing link with which the filmmaker from Granada expected to end his work, made up by what he would describe as lyrical documentaries, cinegraphies or elementaries. The elementary is a categorically poetic declination of documentary film. After the elementaries on water, fire and earth that make up the Elementary Triptych o...

Tired Moonlight

There’s a genre (literary, musical, cinematic) ambiguously called Americana. It has to do with evoking a rural medium, a small, isolated town or city (it includes It’s a Wonderful Life, The Last Picture Show and even The Straight Story) and, in a more metaphorical way, with appealing the primitive essence of the American through its com...

A school and a film director have joined forces in order to make a film.

Transeúntes

However, these factors pale in comparison to the final experience the film offers a 100-minute-long expo...

No taboos seem to exist for evangelist pastor Diego Gebel and his three-hour-plus shows-masses.
