False Twins

The new short by Sandro Aguilar completes a fascinating diptych with the previous Jewels (seen last year at Bafici) and, like that one, it asks us to use reason and imagination in order to run away from the comfort zone the contemporary audience has settled in. Over images -amazing, as always- of caged monkeys, bugs preserved in formaldehyde and a...

Fassbinder - To Love Without Demands

This is not just another documentary on the increasingly fundamental Rainer Werner Fassbinder. It’s a documentary that includes never-seen-before interviews with Fassbinder –meeting-interviews shot by Danish director Christian Braad Thomsen. It’s a portrait, the story of a friendship and an admiration, and a multiple approach to t...

Filmer obstinément, rencontre avec Patricio Guzmán

A portrait of the filmmaker Patricio Guzmán. The film proposes a journey through his cinema marked by the recent history of Chile. From The Battle of Chile, a masterpiece of direct cinema recounting the last months of Salvador Allende and the Chilean Popular Unity to Nacre Button, still a project but filmed as it is coming into being, Patric...

Finding Phong

Young and troubled Le Quoc Phong lives in a village in Vietnam with one single thought: travelling to Hanoi to have a sex-change operation. In an über-redundant selfie-mode, he proves his anguish by elaborating in tears –and yet also a curious dry crying– on the horrors he is facing. The recipient of this confession as well as the...

Finisterre

Film critic Andy Kellman celebrated the release of Finisterre (2002), the sixth album by London supra-pop trio Saint Etienne, as a return to the surprise they had produced a decade earlier, when they busted into the scene with the dazzling Foxbase Alpha (1992). “Just like back then –Kellman wrote– the record’s flow is deligh...

Forastero

The Argentine coast has some characteristics that are hard to translate: tourist attractions, the everyday pace, the personality of its inhabitants and urban identity. Lucía Ferreyra’s first film, a feature based on a short, traces line after line the skeleton of one of those coastal towns: Mar del Sur. The introspective, sensitive poi...

From Caligari to Hitler

But more or less everything of it is forgotten, reduced to two or three footnotes. I wanted to take the audience to an adventurous trip to this lost time, a trip which should entertain, move, surprise and remind us all to an open wound in our past. Siegfried Kracauer, a forgotten genious, described this epoch in From Caligari to Hitler. This best-k...

There are lots of films that look like From Scotland with Love, but we should also say this one doesn’t look like any other.

Fuego en Castilla

Tactilevision gives life to the sculpted saints by Juan de Juni and Berruguete, which burn to the rhythm bailaor Vicente Escudero echoes on the retables of the Valladolid Museum of Religious Sculpture. It’s a figuration of the “horror moor,” a delirium that leads to an awaited mystical ecstasy through the grace of mechanics.

Gabrielle

In this film of eccentric beauty and wild feeling, printed words sometimes fill the screen, almost obliterating the puny creatures struggling beneath the type. Based on Joseph Conrad’s very dry, very vicious long short story, ‘The Return,’ the film concerns a man who, having married a woman for whom he apparently feels nothing, be...

Welcome to the funniest, freest, sharpest, and –why not– more serious film made about its theme Argentine cinema has delivered in a long (maybe too long) time.

Two twin brothers, a mother who returns from plastic surgery with her face completely bandaged, and a glacial design house that sits sufficiently away from other forms of life.
