73% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) The rest of the plot is... at times witty and at times quite reiterative, piling on references and genres with a certain self-confidence, but with nothing really new to offer. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

90% A Star Is Born (2018) The result is a product formatted for fans of the Grammys and the Oscars, but it also lets us see the annoying narcissistic drive of its director and protagonist. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

82% Blind Spot (2018) [Blind Spot] has no great pretensions and manages to stage the tragic pain of the inexplicable with exemplary balance between the formal and the thematic. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

No Score Yet Between Two Waters (Entre dos aguas) (2018) In that ambivalence lies the film's greatest conquest in that it manages to extract genuine fiction from the real and valuable reality from its fiction. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

100% Baby (Bao bei er) (2018) It's not a bad movie, but it's difficult to find something in it that goes beyond neat staging and a sensitive female portrait. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

85% High Life (2018) With the unmistakable shadow of Solaris... High Life is a brave and risky foray into the territory of dystopian science fiction. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

99% Roma (2018) A great movie. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

50% Vision (2018) The result is a cocktail that borders on the most naïve kitsch... without even Naomi Kawase herself being able to convey the feeling of knowing what really want to tell. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

89% Quién te cantará (2018) Echoes of Persona (Bergman) and The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant (Fassbinder) distinctly pulsate under the new feature film by Carlos Vermut. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2018
83% Angelo (2018) Angelo is the most radical and different formalist proposal of the entire official [film festival] section. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2018
33% Illang: The Wolf Brigade (2018) Too long (139 minutes), too repetitive and too conventional in its love plot, the proposal does not go beyond being a somewhat confusing show... and rather dramatically flat. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2018
69% Beautiful Boy (2018) As mediocre as it is sensational and predictable. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2018
100% The Black Book of Father Dinis (O Caderno Negro) (2018) Without a doubt, the most provacative proposal that the official section of the festival has offered up until now. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

97% In Fabric (2018) [In Fabric] soon begins to accumulate gratuitous twists, unnecessary effects and uncontrolled hostilities. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2018
29% The Innocent (Der Unschuldige) (2018) The confusing passage from objective reality to mental delirium... reveals an immature director behind his images. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2018
83% An Unexpected Love (El amor menos pensado) (2018) A film that, in the end... is revealed as a producer's film, the exercise of an applied craftsman who prefers to bet on safety and relies, above all, on traditional values. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2018
50% A Faithful Man (L'homme fidèle) (2018) [The film] reveals itself as the unequivocal debtor of a long tradition of French cinema with strong literary roots... but it does not go much further either in its pretensions. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2018
No Score Yet Yuli (2018) The dialogues are saturated with an explanatory and demonstrative burden, and the essential dramatic conflict of the character... ends up fading away without gaining enough strength to confer true meaning to the film. [Ful review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2018
80% The Realm (El reino) (2018) [Director Peter Sorogoyen tries] to promote a story that overlaps, in a very artificial way, a gimmicky soundtrack that is by far the worst and most questionable part of the proposal. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2018
61% The Man Who Killed Don Quixote (2018) The film aims to be an exaltation of fantasy and imagination, but... fails on its own ground, and perhaps has come too late... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 21, 2018
88% Whitney (2018) In its desire to become a multi-faceted agora... Cannes occasionally gives space to things like this: a vulgar and conventional television report about the life of Whitney Huston... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
76% Dogman (2018) The main interest of the proposal... [is] in the portrayal of that peripheral and degraded environment... [but] does not go much further. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
74% Capernaum (Capharnaüm) (2018) It is, therefore, an aesthetic manipulation of a dramatic social picture, which reveals a more than questionable view of its materials by the director... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
57% Under the Silver Lake (2019) Another cultural bluff to sell as if it were the penultimate discovery of pop recycling. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
100% Sofia (2018) The story's dramaturgy eludes stark realism and seeks austerity within a production also presided by formal restraint... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
94% Burning (Beoning) (2018) The result is a strict realistic and prosaic narrative's disquieting tale, but whose inner nature is allowed to infect the abyss of the fantastic... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 17, 2018
89% Carmen & Lola (Carmen y Lola) (2018) Hence, the film draws its greatest energy from its almost documentalist grip, with which its director films the daily life of the community... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 16, 2018
58% At War (En guerre) (2018) All very false, very deceitful and very regrettable. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 16, 2018
58% The House That Jack Built (2018) But it is clear that the Dane cannot be content to make a mere thriller (say, a kind of Henry, a portrait of a murderer), because his ambitions, as usual, aim much higher. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 16, 2018
95% BlacKkKlansman (2018) The film works acceptably as a genre thriller... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
68% Asako I & II (Netemo sametemo) (2018) The idea could have resulted in a nice fantastic story in the manner of Kiyoshi Kurosawa, but [director] Riusuke Hamaguchi proposes a more prosaic and, above all, much more undefined, story... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
80% The Harvesters (2018) The main problem with the film is that this suggestive and disturbing reflection... ends up stagnating in the waters of a somewhat confused dramaturgy and a rather flat staging and with limited capacity for resonance. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
98% Shoplifters (Manbiki kazoku) (2018) The filmmaker's clean, transparent and empathetic look... is manifested here with full harmony even when, starting from an unexpected accident, they begin to manifest themselves... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
90% Another Day of Life (2017) The resulting whole is an atypical hybrid, which is far from Waltz with Bashir (Ari Folman, 2008), but which achieves intermittent powerful flashes of animation. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
79% The Image Book (Le livre d'image) (2018) There is no truce or any concession: everything is in question, everything challenges us, everything interrogates us. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

100% Ash Is Purest White (2019) [A] film with powerful images and [an] unpredictable evolution... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

95% Girl (2018) Narrated with clean efficiency... the film manages to film with respect, with a certain distance, without sensationalism and without melodramatic or discursive concessions... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
32% Girls of the Sun (Les filles du soleil) (2018) [The film has] an orthopedic incrustation of flashbacks that explain the suffering background of a combatant and a Manichean rhetoric worthy of a better of a better cause... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
38% Angel Face (Gueule d'ange) (2018) With a really splendid composition of the always elegant and contained Marion Cotillard in the role of a tacky, excessive, clumsy and uncontrolled mother, the film ends in a pseudo-ironic catharsis that she did not deserve... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
94% 3 Faces (2018) The film, exemplary in its simplicity, in its transparency and in its ability to register the immediacy of the real, constitutes an explicit tribute to Abbas Kiarostami... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
69% Manto (2018) The narrative intersperses, in some occasions, fragments represented of some of the fictions written by Manto, but it is hardly separated... [from] the forms and the limitations of the more conventional western biopic. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
33% Murder Me, Monster (Muere, monstro, muere) (2018) Another disappointment. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

85% Sorry Angel (Plaire, aimer et courir vite) (2018) The result is not a great filmic conquest, but it is an honest, courageous and sincere film. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
29% Sextape (A genoux les gars) (2018) It is quite difficult to really take seriously... this insubstantial French nonsense that can only have come [to Cannes] because it is French... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
96% Border (Gräns) (2018) The [mix of genres] may seem delirious and, in fact, it does not hide its openly fantastic dimension... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
65% Summer (Leto) (2018) Its evident modesty does not prevent it, however, from appearing in the middle of this festival, for now insufferably mediocre... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
93% Petra (2018) A new step... in the constant and admirable formal search that develops the filmography of [Petra's] author. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 11, 2018
58% Yomeddine (2018) A film as predictable (even in its optimistic and voluntaristic outcome) as it is modest, full of good feelings and good intentions in its approach, but does not go much further. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
