One can get all worked up about Spandau Ballet –as demonstrated by this excellent summary of its journey. Soul Boys of the Western World has the one thing that’s conspicuously absent from the ‘80s nostalgia programmes: context and vision. This is a film without clichés or ch...

After watching The Romantic Exiles, you get a melancholy feeling similar to the one you get after vacation reunions with old friends. Here, we run against Vito and Francesco again, those dilettantes who moved through a winter and somber Madrid back in The Wishful Thinkers. Whether they play the same...

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...

After directing several music videos (by El Otro Yo, Leo García, and more) director Nicky Pintos moved to a more suitable format for a band like Attaque 77: the documentary. And so, he embarked on this journey as a director. The seminal punk rock band deserved a feature-length film that would...

El Cultural San Martín - Paraná esquina Sarmiento
Room: 2

Machine Cancer is a film as intriguing as its title leads us to assume. The directors are bold enough to go from a human-scale shaped and designed portrait –which stonily observes the people from Médanos, a town in the south of the Buenos Aires province– to the enigmatic detail sh...

Even when it carries a hint of irony and another one of undeniable bitterness, the Citizen Kane quote Javier Olivera slips in The Shadow is not gratuitous. His own story, the story of his father as a young cinema tycoon in Argentina, the story of the northern suburb mansion where his family lived an...

Nearly 47 years ago, Garrel made a six-minute short film during the peak of the May 1968 events in France, composed of his own 35mm takes and 16mm footage taken by the film students who participated in the revolts. One single screening of Actua 1 took place in late May before Garrel declared the fil...

Passion

Malba Cine - Av. Figueroa Alcorta 3415

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 fr...

A highly enjoyable look at a career spent duping the art world, Beltracchi introduces an artist who made millions selling fake paintings that allegedly made their way into museums, definitive art books, and collections including that of Steve Martin. The longhaired sexagenarian says he didn’t...

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. Less cerebral than Gustav Deutsch’s Welt Spiegel Kino and more surprising than Electric Edwardians –that collection of footage and primitive views of British...

It’s difficult to critically engage with Citizenfour, as Poitras’ landmark documentary about Edward Snowden isn’t a film so much as a big fucking deal. A primary account of how the world learned that the NSA has been spying on United States citizens, and also a meta-text that impli...
