El Angel (2018)
The angel is a pretty boy thug serial menace. The treatment is enamored of its subject, diluting his gay tendencies and celebrating every crime as a cute inspired revolution. Lorenzo Ferro keeps the character charged and the film pulsing but the consequences for heinous are overlooked. I could smell the 70s. 24-Oct-2019
Cuaron's acute respect for the latino community grants the actors a flow of naturalness. He stills the camera and holds us down but the punches are seldom. His scrupulousness doesn't allow the story to move forward, to be appreciated or ingested. Black and white is an art trick that binds it to a timeless blur. 20-Dec-2018
Her piggish husband has been possessed by a gentler woken ghost. What is a woman to do? Half the fun is figuring it out and celebrating the film's laughs, zestful anterior American tunes and "no bullshit" relationship conclusions. I might've chosen wrong for her but she didn't. 10-Jul-2018
If you are going to push a movie's intensity by how fact based it is, you can't let mumbo jumbo lead. The scares are laid out but never trimmed. The director seems unaware that it is precise cuts that grip and shake. 13-Mar-2018
Me Estas Matando, Susana (2016)
Boy loses girl, man ventures to get her back. Gael Garcia Bernal tackles deep gut reflection on what an asshole a man can be and the worth they forget to assign their wives. Veronica Echegui clasps his brilliance and spars effectively. I think it deserved an ironic ending but the laughs, the heartbreak and the politics are real. 01-Mar-2018
It's an ode to American action farce from another time except the makers weren't privy to any of the good ones. The leads have bygone ethnic daddy squish, chemistry and lashes of quick wit. The film has a reset button, treats women like chess pieces and has no identity. I'm not figuring it out for them. 20-Feb-2018
La Pantalla Desnuda (2014)
The director/writer Florence Jaugey establishes grit and exasperation from effortless fine points. Somehow youth is the real victim as it establishes that God apprehension, child bowing or dissent and unconsciousness from adults is what triggers the self loathing and self destruction of teenagers. There is no punishment for the evil done as the film piles heartbreaking consequences against our young lovers, but that may be the reason the abomination lingers. 13-Jul-2016
