Pacto de amor

The keynote address in what has become –rising out of the neurotic bath of 1970s exploitation films– one of the world’s cinema most original and discomfiting visions, this masterwork from Cronenberg has aged into a kind of subterranean sacredness. Name another film that takes as many risks, runs its astonishing course with such a...

Padrone e sotto

In a run-down bar in Southern Italy, locals gather every day to play “padrone e sotto,” a game of cards and drinks. While the beer gets as warm as the spirit of these peasants, nurses, mechanics, and hunters, Cirigliano remembers the fascination and terror that mysterious hobby and its infuriated players used to cause on him back when h...

Paraíso

In the marginal areas of Lima, a group of five teenagers (three boys and two girls) tries to survive faced with the almost nil social chances the presents has to offer them. None of them loses their ability to face all adversities and dream with a change that would alter their existence, stuck as it is in the poor neighborhood Jardines del Para&iac...

Park Lanes

The deal with Park Lanes is none other than its running time: the eight hours of the workday of the laborers at a factory. Having said this, one could ask oneselves why so few films have dealt with work, or have felt the necessity to reflect what makes the working class unique, aside from the purely cinematic professions (the cop, the attorney, the...

Passion

A film about people who chase cars in order to hunk their horn. Or about the eternal tension that exists between industrial bourgeoisie and the workers. Passion is an absolute simultaneity, the destruction of a fragmented world; it’s the world exploding in images and sounds as evidence of a fragmented world. It’s a realist film, the way...

María dresses herself, puts on some makeup, dresses her two kids. She grabs a little bag where she carries some food, her ID, some papers and cigarettes. She stands in line with her two children in her arms. She’s about to enter prison in order to visit her husband. What the film inquires is what is it that motivates these women: love,...

Petits arrangements avec les morts

A Breton beach at sundown. Around a sand castle we have three characters: a kid nicknamed Jumbo and his two adult brothers, François and Zaza, who were also kids one day and went through an event similar to little Jumbo’s: the death of a loved one; a death from which they had to learn to coexist with and become immune to grief, like th...

plus Tubular Bells

Come on, let’s fight the monster of History. Or if you prefer, some other one that’s even more terrible: prejudice. Because Tubular Bells is that annoying lesson we used to receive from our older brothers to the cry of “This is real music!” It’s the superb picture of young Mike Oldfield with the 27 instruments (give or...

Poner al rock de moda

The hero’s journey, that mythology turned dogma that both enriched and hurt classic narrative, might easily find a reflection on the rock music world, with its guitar-holding gentlemen facing obstacles that seem unsalvageable in a fantasy world. But unlike most films about music bands, Bring Back Rock is not a documentary about a rise to star...

Postman’s White Nights

The Keronzero Lake is a national park in northern Russia to which Andrei Konchalovski arrived in order to show, by means of the art of film, a type of invisible human extinction. There, its inhabitants live a life without a time. But the temptation of saying they inhabit the solace of an enchanted nature is suddenly cooled off when, from Postman&rs...

Prometo um dia deixar essa cidade

One would wish today’s festival cinema was more like this, limitless and outrageous. One that would test our notions on good taste and correction. A color-filled, vane, and definitely sexy cinema. I Swear I’ll Leave This Town fits those adjectives, which are also good to describe the film’s protagonist Joi, a young woman from a di...

Prose du Transsibérien

A journey by train: the moving window like the screen of a landscape that is exterior as well as interior. The words of a poet that blend until they dissolve, blurring the borders of the intimate and the universal, merging with and separating from a snowed landscape that is always the same and always different. The window as link and frontier, as u...

Queen of Earth

There is a key element that can be seen when the title of the film is presented: the line below the title, with the year and copyright, makes it seem as if it were a film from the sixties or seventies, of those that show tortuous emotional confinement like, for example, Roman Polanski’s Repulsion. If Alex Ross Perry’s fourth film is psy...
