3.5/4 94% Loveless (Nelyubov) (2018) The premise seems to be taken from a Ruth Rendell novel. The search for the kid will not unite the marriage but to spread the lack of love between man and woman to all those around them. (Complete review in Spanish in newspaper Reforma).‐ Reforma

0/4 No Score Yet Tuya, Mía... te la Apuesto (2018) I do not know what Triana tried to do in this movie, but the screenplay moves between the worst farce and the most failed social criticism,‐ Cine Vértigo

0/4 73% The Mercy (2017) This is apointless adventure, as well as the same film focused on this pathetic adventure. (Complete review in Spanish, in the Mexican newspaper Reforma)‐ Reforma

1.5/4 100% The 4th Company (La 4a Compañía) (2016) Although quite uneven, this history of political, police and prison corruption -filmed in Santa Martha Acatitla prison with real criminals as extras- can be seen without much difficulty...‐ Cine Vértigo

2/4 83% Lover For A Day (L'amant d'un jour) (2018) Filmed in an elegant black and white, with a magnificent trio of actors in which shines especially the debutante Chevillote...‐ Cine Vértigo

3/4 95% A Quiet Place (2018) I have not seen any of the two previous films by Krasinski but at least here it is more than clear that we are facing a real filmmaker.‐ Cine Vértigo

0/4 71% Double Lover (L'amant double) (2018) An erotic-psychological thriller that could have been a major work in the hands of Brian de Palma. ‐ Cine Vértigo

3/4 96% The Florida Project (2017) Baker follows these characters through a series of neo-realist episodes, in their absolute precariousness and in their most contagious freedom. (Complete review in newspaper Reforma, in Spanish)‐ Reforma

87% Annihilation (2018) Garland, well supported by the imaginative production design Mark Digby and the work of five special effects companies, has directed a worthy film of adventure, horror and existential reflection. (In Spanish)‐ Cine Vértigo

2/4 100% El Vigilante (2016) Ros is a good director of actors, he knows how to create suspense and uses his cinephile references effectively - for example, the importance of the objects in the film, in the style of Hitchcock.‐ Cine Vértigo

3/4 93% Thelma (2017) A shrewd mix of horror movie, provocative feminist / feminist liberation film and, in the end, the story of the origin of a new super-heroine (or a super-villain?) (Review complete in newspaper Reforma, in spanish)‐ Reforma

3.5/4 73% Ready Player One (2018) A visual spectacle so overwhelming as joyful that it does not give the viewer respite in his uninterrupted succession of adventures. (In Spanish)‐ Cine Vértigo

2/4 47% Based on a True Story (D'après une histoire vraie) (2017) The most recent film by the octogenarian French-Polish filmmaker Polanski is a creative / psychological thriller very much in debt to the best of his previous work, especially with Repulsion (1965) and The Tenant (1976). ‐ Cine Vértigo

2.5/4 91% The Other Side of Hope (Toivon tuolla puolen) (2017) A minor but endearing work of the master Kaurismäki. (Complete review in Spanish in Reforma newspaper)‐ Reforma

100% Alanis (2017) Berneri is not interested in denouncing these injustices that are obvious and well known. Her intention is to observe this girl, the relationship with her charming baby and the way in which she plans to survive today, on this day, at this moment.‐ Cine Vértigo

2/4 52% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) The performance of Washington, as usual, is irreproachable, to such an extent that his character is not only interesting but even touching.‐ Cine Vértigo

0/4 No Score Yet Fukushima, mon Amour (2016) The film, very predictable, has all the good intentions of the world and very little else.‐ Cine Vértigo

2.5/4 94% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) A conventional woman's film that has its greatest audacity in the charisma of its trans protagonist, Daniela Vega. (Complete review in Spanish in Refroma.com)‐ Reforma
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2018
2.5/4 96% Mudbound (2017) The direction of Rees, well supported by the lyrical photography of Rachel Morrison -nominated to the Oscar for this work-, is centered more on the story, on her half dozen characters and on how the actors interpret them. (Review in Spanish)‐ Cine Vértigo

1.5/4 90% I, Tonya (2018) We, as spectators, are witnesses of this freak-show of an unfortunate but talented redneck who had everything to win but who, in reality, was born to lose. (Review in Spanish)‐ Cine Vértigo

3.5/4 91% Phantom Thread (2018) I do not know if it is the best movie that Anderson has directed but I think it has the best ending of his entire filmography. If it is true that Day Lewis is retiring from acting... it is an extraordinary farewell. (Review in Spanish in Reforma.com)‐ Cine Vértigo

3/4 91% Marshland (La isla mínima) (2014) The ending of La Isla Mínima is discouraging: the small triumph achieved by Pedro "the good guy" - through Juan "the bad guy" - means, in a way, a betrayal. The "new" Spain has been born buried into the past. (Review in spanish)‐ Cine Vértigo

95% The King's Speech (2010) A good, well-made historical biopic that stands out for a luxury cast that does not have a single flaw - notwithstanding the excessive overacting of Timothy Spall in the role of Churchill. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Cine Vértigo

1.5/4 99% Lady Bird (2017) This film has achieved some notoriety for the cultural climate that Hollywood is experiencing at this time. If Hollywood wanted to nominate a woman, they could name Eliza Hittman or Kathryn Bigelow. (Full Review in Reforma newspaper, in Spanish).‐ Reforma

0/4 No Score Yet Lo Más Sencillo es Complicarlo Todo (2018) Danna Paola lacks these virtues and the endless confessional monologues... are not helpful either: they make Renata an annoying character. (Full Review in Spanish)‐ Cine Vértigo
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2018
0.5/4 78% All the Money in the World (2017) An annoying movie that, very probably, will end up becoming an anecdotal footnote of the cultural times that we are living.‐ Cine Vértigo

0/4 22% La Boda De Valentina (2018) The sad thing is that this re-marriage comedy - perhaps the most clearly progressive subgenre within the Hollywood comedy, since the times of It Happened One (Capra, 1934) - ended up giving us such a conformist outcome. Full Review in Spanish‐ Cine Vértigo

1/4 96% Black Panther (2018) The problem is that this laudable political discourse ends up drowning a film that has its best moments not around the noble T'Challa, but around the great villain of the film - and the only true star of the whole movie- Michael B. Jordan... ‐ Cine Vértigo

1.5/4 No Score Yet Maize in Time of War (2016) [Director Alberto] Cortes is no stranger to this committed and militant cinema... And if it is true that his proposal doesn't give up on being conservative, it is in the best sense of the term and a lot of pride. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Cine Vértigo

88% The Untamed (La región salvaje) (2017) ... a genuinely proactive, risky and, above all, well-executed film. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Cine Vértigo

87% The Post (2018) Without ambiguity, Spielberg has directed a vibrant ode in favor of the importance of journalistic work, the importance of the free press and the need for journalism to serve as a counterweight to power. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Cine Vértigo

1.5/4 82% Molly's Game (2018) This story demanded someone like Scorsese and, of course, Sorkin is not him. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Cine Vértigo

1.75/4 92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) ... wasting an interesting premise and a solid performance by McDormand... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Cine Vértigo

1/4 No Score Yet Amazonas (2016) The documentary is an interesting - although sometimes repetitive - reflection on motherhood and the obligations and demands it raises.‐ Cine Vértigo

0/4 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) As an actor, Franco effectively appropriated the tics of the one-man-orchestra Wiseau, but the comedy ends on the side of condescension and the punishment of others. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Cine Vértigo

2/4 85% Darkest Hour (2017) A good "dad movie" centered on the days of May 1940 when Churchill becomes prime minister... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Cine Vértigo

88% Nocturama (2017) The form and the background of Nocturama do not merge, but collide with each other in an outcome that denies us any possible tranquility. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Cine Vértigo

78% American Honey (2016) ... yes, without a doubt, the film is too long, but it is also true that it is worth every minute of time invested. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Cine Vértigo
