Cavalo Dinheiro

In a documentary about his work, Pedro Costa explained how simple is to make films: you get up, go to the corresponding location, shoot until it’s late, edit the footage, and go back to prepare everything for the next day. With this candid statement, the Portuguese auteur clarified the ethics that would later drive him to make, among others,...

Cinema: A Public Affair

This is a story of resistance, cinephilia –lucid, combative, and not at all mournful– and civism. Naum Kleiman is a historian, curator of the Eisenstein Archive, and director of the Moscow Museum, which was closed in 2005. Kleiman is a charming man with an elegant and paused loquacity, who states his case before authoritarianism with br...

Citizenfour

It’s difficult to critically engage with Citizenfour, as Poitras’ landmark documentary about Edward Snowden isn’t a film so much as a big fucking deal. A primary account of how the world learned that the NSA has been spying on United States citizens, and also a meta-text that implicitly validates the information it uncovers, Citiz...

The story, additionally, poses another kind of questionings, but of an aestheti...

Cómo ganar enemigos

Mid-size films without any grand pretensions are very welcomed. What pretensions are those? To find an audience! Without giving up its original idea, no low punches or miscalculations, and without resigning its identity, How to Win Enemies features characteristics local cinema are not really used to: a well-written and better executed script, overl...

If Juan Gatti isn’t a legend, something in the world of the creation of legends isn’t going very well. Starting off from graphic design and expanding his talent in every possible sense, his work includes the creation of some icons which, due to lack of space, would be impossible to list in these pages. Now Gatti makes his film, and espe...

“No matter what’s the story I want to tell, I can’t help but making a comedy. I’m interested in films that stir the audience. I feel comfortable with that because I think it takes courage to be happy, and above anything else, I want to avoid the trap of sordid realism. I rather suggest that sort of things. And I always had a...

A huge empty vertical space. It’s a portion of the rough background you see in a highway. It could be left alone, just as it happens all over the world. It could have plants, or it could be a mural. But in Buenos Aires and its surroundings, a highway wall can become –and does so, too often– political propaganda, mere names and las...

Kevin Rowland is being chased by myth, but he is still able to outrun it.
