The quest for success in Hollywood. The dream of becoming an actress. Novella McClure is in her early thirties and has several problems. 1) She didn’t become a star. 2) Not only that, but she also didn’t get any parts in the last three years. 3) Her name sounds like a porn star from the past century. 4) There are younger actresses willi...

Eisenstein in Guanajuato

An eternal advocate of the love for the pictorial and elegance on the screen, is now trying to capture his cinephile Holy Grail: the Mexican period that changed the life of Sergei Eisenstein, one of the most mythical and refractory silent film directors. As a fundamentalist worshiper of the Russian director who is dazzled in an almost intentional w...

El acto en cuestión

When Alejandro Agresti made The Act in Question, he had already directed several films –some in Argentina, some in the Netherlands– and his filmography surpassed in quality and extension the ones of his contemporaries (and not just the local ones). But nothing could have foreseen the imaginary biography of magician Quiroga (played by an...

El ansia

The Hunger is a film both assured and ambitious, wringing subtlety and slow-boiling tension out of a shamelessly ridiculous plot involving a vampiric vixen that has persisted since Ancient Egyptian times in the graceful form of Catherine Deneuve, with lover David Bowie riding her coattails through the centuries. It’s also a vampire film that...

El cielo del Centauro

I only shot one film Buenos Aires: that first feature-length film, Invasion, which I wrote with Jorge Luis Borges. 43 years later, I suddenly felt a clear need to plunge immediately into my city and film it again, with a passion. So, I wrote with Mariano Llinás… a fable? a Sufi tale?, or let’s rather say a plot within the pure t...

El color de la granada

“Watching Sergei Parajanov’s The Color of Pomegranates, or Sayat Nova, is like opening a door and walking into another dimension, where time has stopped and beauty has been unleashed. On a very basic level, it’s a biography of the Armenian poet Sayat Nova, but before all else it’s a cinematic experience, and you come away re...

El doctor Mabuse

Mabuse is the dark hero of Weimar cinema. Full of charisma, sardonic charm and nasty ideas, he is the wicked genious of crime –a German Fantomas. Fritz Lang shot four Mabuse films, including his very last film in 1960. Other directors tried as well, but never reached Lang’s superb ability and social-pathological depth. This double-featu...

If documentary is an endless genre is not just because it can take any element in the world (a person, a city, or an object) and turn it into its subject, but rather because of the endless ways it can portray and question that element. In the case of Mudmen, the eye is on an old man who lives in Rio Negro and makes bricks out of mud. A young interv...

The audience arrives and then the moments of loneliness, concentration, the ferocious attention to detail… The party of the monster.” Th...

In both films we can strongly perceive that typical melanc...

On his first English-spoken film, Hong Sangsoo decides to take the light that both his cinema and Isabelle Huppert irradiate, and make it fractal. A prism of himself, Hong refracts Huppert (the perfect catalyst for his sense of the unease, the certainty, the comedy of everyday life –which makes it absurd) in three different stories, managing...
