Raid in St. Pauli

Like Nerves, this is one the few films not set in Berlin. But the nightlife of Hamburg looks similiar to that of The Blue Angel. Shot in a modern “New Sobriety” realism, with fast editing and crossfading, this film is a look on the demi-monde, the world of hookers, gangsters and pimps. Director Werner Hochbaum, a socialist who later arr...

Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation

Not-that-young film buff, stop drooling over action figures from your favorite VHS tapes and listen to the greatest fan-fiction story ever told (and filmed): in 1981, Chris Strompolos and Eric Zala, in Mississippi and at 11, saw Raiders of the Lost Ark, the Rosetta Stone of Indy adventure cinema. Right there, with a comic book and pirated copy of t...

Re:Awakenings

In 1969, Oliver Sacks, a neurologist in his thirties, found himself in a hospital from the Bronx with a group of patients who had been in a catatonic state for decades. He identified them as survivors of a devastating encephalitis epidemic that happened four decades ago, and tested some new medicine with them, which provided extraordinary results:...

Reflejo Narcisa

With the beautiful colors of a few days in autumn, this film joins Narcisa Hirsch, fundamental guiding light for Argentine experimental film, in her activities and meditations, without clearly determining where ones end and others begin. By revisiting photos and letters from the filmmaker’s mother’s youth, the film presents a tale of Do...

Relámpago en la oscuridad

To depict the life and work of Beto (or if you prefer to call him by his name, Alberto Zamarbide, the V8 vocalist who taught Argentina to sing Heavy Metal, with capital letters, yes) means to draw an arch that goes from the loneliness of the very first heavies, misunderstood and resisted during the last dictatorship, to the growing epic of metal ba...

Rescate en el Barrio Chino

In some alley in San Francisco’s Chinatown, Jack Burton’s truck is parked. And the verbose, smart-ass, mainly insufferable Burton is determined to get it back, whatever the cost; or, rather, whatever it costs his (not quite) friend and expert martial artist Wang. While he’s at it, he will make sure Wang pays his gambling debts and...

Revivre

One of the (many) problems filmmakers must face when they reach old age is being canonized. Rapidly, regardless of the merits of their work, they tend to become untouchable, and are surrounded by an entourage willing to celebrate their careers (as mediocre as they may have been) leaving aside any kind of analysis of criticism. That is not the case...

Rocky IV, le coup de poing americain

Right in the mid-eighties, in 1985, Sylvester Stallone wrote, directed and starred in the fourth installment of Rocky. The most bombastic of the franchise, the one that was considered a pinnacle of Reaganist cinema. Of course, those of us who were twelve when it came out found out about those details later. We also found out later that many critics...

Runan Caycu

The extreme close-up that opens Runan Caycu is demolishing: aesthetics and ethics interlace in order to become politics. In it, farmers’ union leader Saturnino Huillca expresses, in Quechua, the anger that drives him to undertake a tireless struggle for his social claims. This opening sketches a poetic subversive portrait that incites uprisin...

Sauerbruch Hutton Architects

Architects at work: a priori nothing lends itself better to cinema, nothing is more graphic than shots that alternate between the drawing and the built structure, between the two-dimensional plan and the three-dimensional result.
