In 2013, The Mysterious Fanta Ananas, an unknown Somalian filmmaker, surprised the festival fauna with Chigger Ale, a bizarre short film about a Hitler clone from outer space. Everything seems to indicate that behind Fanta’s novelesque identity sits Miguel Llansó, a visionary filmmaker...

In Ezequiel Acuña’s films, music plays a very important role (as well as young friendship and love, the feelings that are hard to translate into words, the absences that hurt and off-season beaches), so much so that we suspected that him making a film about a rock band was just a matter...

“This is pretty civilized,” says Simon while someone serves food on his plate, as if he was expecting his hosts to be anything other than a Charles Manson-like clan of savages. Simon’s untrusting reaction during his short visit is probably the same one spectators would have if they...

ōoka Shōhei, one of post-war Japanese literature’s greatest, had been called up to serve in ‘44, on the Philippines. What he describes in his 1951 masterpiece, Nobi, he knew –some of the unspeakable deeds too many soldiers committed during the final weeks of Imperial Japan (most me...

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...

In one of their many songs –the one entitled “What Belongs to Everyone Belongs to No One”, Los Aldeanos say, among many other things: “Justifying all with the blockade / you need to get a license to fart / I see, I see, how ugly this is getting (…) / no evil lasts a hu...

There actually is a pigeon here, in the beginning: a stuffed one, therewith past wondering; some zombie-like-looking human gawks at it in seemingly dull incomprehension. The film’s anti-heroes, a pair of salesmen specialized in fun novelties like vampire teeth (with extra-long fangs!) are met...

The last real earthquake to hit cinema was Blue Velvet. There is much of what noir does best in here: Kyle MacLachlan’s Jeffrey Beaumont slips past the safety rails and hops right into a raging maelstrom of guilt and evil as blithely as any noir protagonist ever did; and Dennis Hopper’s...

As her brief but explosive filmography as a director keeps growing, Asia Argento seems to be setting up a sort of (false) autobiography, both personal and artistic: from the nightmares of the lead actress in Scarlet Diva (2000) to the terrible mother of The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things (2004)...

One of the lesser known films of Murnau: It’s a men’s world, but –as often– with a femme fatale in its center; a melodrama of guilt and treason unfolds itself in flashbacks. All is atmosphere: Like in a gothic tale, the stormy weather mirrors the emotional state of people; th...
