Despite of these disjunctions in the plot, and deviations from the novel, this is a perfectly watchable film and should please those who are attracted by the mysteries of faith and temptations of evil. Review

I ended with a terrible sensation that the story didn’t give everything it should; just like an underdeveloped exercise that leave us wanting to know more about its characters. Review

Assuming the typical Italian exuberance, this satire never loses intensity, denoting genuine comical moments, stirring alienation, and powerful images. Review

The Thieves can be stirring and electrifying, although many times is just show-off, making us anticipate some of its calculated tricks. Review

Its eagerness in combining mystery, humor, drama, and action, all at once, didn’t bring the expected results to make this epic more surprising or thrilling. Lee Byung-hun’s performance, and a few funny dialogues and situations, made Masquerade entertaining but far from fundamental. Review

I liked how the light was used to create intimate, warm images, along with the spirited, wordy dialogues. A couple of scenes, however, seemed utterly misplaced, as if coming from nowhere. Nothing really serious, in a movie that was never boring. Review

Dean Martin’s tune That’s Amore annoyingly fills our ears over and over again, in a movie that was only able to impress through its beautiful southern Italian landscapes. Review

Despite its strangled spirit and implausible ending, Sidewalls still has its enjoyable moments, intercalated with riveting images of concrete, steel and glass. Review

Sometimes ludicrous, sometimes sober, Camille Rewinds counts with a competent execution but stumbles in a borrowed back-to-the-future tale that will not stick in my memory. Review

The restrained tension worked strikingly well, whereas minor flaws didn’t have significant expression in the final result. Rohrwacher and Yle Vianello, are to be congratulated in their debut direction and acting, respectively. Review

The choreographed fight scenes along with the final moments seemed too fabricated to impress, while the performances were drab. Totally outdated! Review

Without any shame or complex, Porfirio says a lot about humanity and justice, at the same time that points a finger at the incompetent Colombian state. Review

The savvy director Alex Gibney, made the interviewees show their anger and indignation without exploiting them emotionally. Sufficiently explanatory to show the world the demonic crimes hidden by Catholic Church. Review

It showed constant concerns on giving a frenetic image and impose madness everywhere and in everyone, to the point of becoming disarticulated and, not infrequently, ridicule. Not even suitable for crazies! Review

Everything is surrounded by misery due to the Balkan conflict and actual economic crisis, but Rahima’s love for her brother will give her strength and hope to fight for a decent and honest life. Even if she has to face social class differences, religious prejudices or slanders. Review
