98% Body Heat (1981) Pure noir, which may force too much the final thought of Hurt's character - he's dumb, but he's still a lawyer - but that dazzles, never better, in each of its frames. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT

88% Thunderball (1965) To Connery, who develops his character throughout the film with a frightening ease, demonstrating that the character fits him like a glove, adds the beauty of Luciana Paluzzi. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT

Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2019
76% Silverado (1985) Not reaching the mastery of the film starring a vengeful spirit, the truth is that 'Silverado' is a feast for the senses. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2019
81% The Homesman (2014) While maintaining a very obvious respect for the genre, the film is terribly current for several reasons. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2019
71% Is Paris Burning? (Paris brûle-t-il?) (1966) It's touching in the deepest with those final sequences, in which the narrative time seems stretched millimetrically. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT

Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2019
81% Maelstrom (2000) Birth and death are connected in 'Maelström', in which Villeneuve does not execute any kind of judgment on Bibiane's alleged lack of morality. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2019
58% I Love You to Death (1990) The best of the film is its short duration and Kevin Kline, who proves to be one of the best actors of the last thirty years, dominating comedy like nobody else. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2019
79% Silent Movie (1976) Basically it has no plot skeleton, it is very repetitive and when a very annoying character appears, in charge of Bernardette Peters, the film becomes quite boring. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2019
No Score Yet The Girl in Black Stockings (1957) The best of the film, in addition to that harmless game of who is who, lies in the subtle interpretation of Anne Bancroft. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2019

Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2019
No Score Yet The Iron Curtain (1948) 'The Iron Curtain' becomes, in a short time - the film doesn't arrive in an hour and a half - in a vibrant story of survival, in which the personal prevails above the general. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT

Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2019
77% Sea Fog (Haemoo) (2015) The film feels interesting and new, with some odd comic notes, about fisherman's life in difficult times. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT

80% The Assassin (2015) In 'The Assassin' the shape is everything, it even elevates the more than simple plot to a place that few can truly reach. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2019
77% Grand Canyon (1991) As if it was a rhythmic dance, in clear harmony with its characters, lost in a world that advances without brake. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2019

Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2019
91% Bridge of Spies (2015) An almost invisible camera shows us a Russian spy trapped by the FBI - impeccable sequence, in which Spielberg articulates a certain suspense based on details. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT

32% Fanboys (2008) A film that entertains in the right measure, and that is audacious with funny theories about Luke and Leia. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2019
48% French Kiss (1995) It is a huge disappointment to see Kevin Kline shine, as always, with a character of enormous possibilities but that ends up being sold to the demand of the mass. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2019
65% Ricki And The Flash (2015) A predictable film, topical, without big surprises, that walks on paths more than explored, and that barely reminds Jonathan Demme's style. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2019
69% Point Break (1991) Risky acts through increasingly audacious sequences, culminating in one of the most outstanding moments ever seen in the genre. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2019
20% Quintet (1979) 'Quintet' is very boring. Even an actor like Paul Newman seems to get bored with a character that clearly don't suit him. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2019
No Score Yet When Time Ran Out (1980) To see Borgnine and Meredith's talent been wasted in such a way is really disappointing. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT

90% My Big Night (Mi Gran Noche) (2016) The police confronting protesters, an image in which Alex de la Iglesia opts for a decision that seems genius to me: all faces are obscured, all are equal. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2019
57% Mumford (1999) It's the little big film in the director's (Lawrence Kasdan) filmography. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2019

Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2019
72% Youth (2015) The editing, work of Cristiano Travaglioli, deserves our full attention. We are probably talking about his most refined work, which together with the director's work, results the most perfect film of his filmography. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT

No Score Yet The Bride (La novia) (2016) False transcendence is what is delivered through the images of 'The Bride', despite the amazing cast, especially Inma Cuesta, who seems to be in another movie even though it sounds ridiculous. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2019
No Score Yet Nothing in Return (A cambio de nada) (2015) A film in which many of its images hurt, in which you breathe how bad life is, with a naturalness that scares, with some adult characters whose faces are the portrait of that pain... An excellent movie. [Full Review in Spanish] - Espinof EDIT
