78% The First Monday in May (2016) A film that, with each look, each sentence, each reproach, is conforming itself as an interesting portrait of characters, commanded by a great protagonist. [Full review in Spanish]‐ El Pais (Spain)

No Score Yet Callback (2016) An interesting and wicked mirror of commercials that help you improve your life, your smile, your image, your breathing and even your breath. The fetid, cracked, and brown mirror of the American dream. [Full review in Spanish]‐ El Pais (Spain)

Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2017
94% The Treasure (2016) An adventure film, although anyone can tell by seeing its deliberately fetish and consciously reiterative images, set in frigid offices. [Full review in Spanish]‐ El Pais (Spain)

Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
26% Colonia (2016) A kind of romantic intrigue thriller starring a young couple housed in hell. Superficial, indolent and at times ridiculously melodramatic. [Full review in Spanish]‐ El Pais (Spain)

66% Anthropoid (2016) Sometimes the tone chosen to tell a story can end up collapsing. And here is added the director's lack of talent. [Full review in Spanish]‐ El Pais (Spain)
