48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) [Director] J.A. Bayona ends up composing a pastiche that weaves the Jurassic saga with The Orphanage, synthesized in the monster that ends up roaming by a huge and gloomy mansion at its leisure... [Full review in Spanish] ‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

No Score Yet Lucia's Grace (Troppa grazia) (2018) It's not the worst comedy that has gone through [Cannes] this year, but surely the aspirations should be higher. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

71% In My Room (2018) Everything is, then, something soulless, almost touched by death before the film takes a definite flight in its second half. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

No Score Yet The Pluto Moment (Ming wang xing shi ke) (2018) [The film has] moments of great beauty for a film that does not always reach the same height, but when it does it becomes one of the most interesting proposals of the [Cannes] Fortnight. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

94% Burning (Beoning) (2018) Each and every one of [director] Lee Chang-dong's adaptation decisions in Burning, based on the story Barn Burning by Haruki Murakami, serve to magnify a much weaker base material than the resulting film... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

89% Carmen & Lola (Carmen y Lola) (2018) It's regretful... that the film suffers from the purely fictional aspect: in the construction of the characters, their love story and their dramatic development. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) In short, neither more nor less than a fun robbery movie, perhaps a missed opportunity, and certainly a catastrophe avoided. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

100% The Snatch Thief (El Motoarrebatador) (2018) The film's great virtue is its willingness to let the images speak... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

Read More | Posted May 16, 2018
71% Asako I & II (Netemo sametemo) (2018) The episodic character of the film, articulated in a succession of romantic conflicts, ends up diluting the potential of what, in the end, is no more (or less) than a serial. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
No Score Yet The Trouble with You (En liberté!) (2018) Adèle Haenel's efforts... do not prevent the absolute artistic shipwreck of the film, in the same way that this will not prevent a more than predictable success at the box office. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

50% Buy Me a Gun (Cómprame un revolver) (2018) A more than promising premise hindered by its execution... [Full review in Spanishi]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

98% Shoplifters (Manbiki kazoku) (2018) In an impeccable alchemy, [director Hirokazu] Koreeda mixes [the film's] ingredients: the legal, the ethical, the emotional, the blood ties. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

90% Another Day of Life (2017) And, although the animated scenes do not always have the same force, the possibilities of the medium offer some very suggestive images... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
No Score Yet Samouni Road (2018) In [director Stefano] Savona's excessive, long, sometimes redundant, but sharp and necessary film, the [animation] attains the reality that the photographic record can not (or will not) render. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
71% Los silencios (2018) The biggest problem with Los Silencios is that it tries to be too many movies at once, and it does not manage to be any of them. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
100% The Load (Teret) (2018) Built as a road movie in its first hour of footage, the film accompanies a truck driver on his way from Kosovo to Belgrade... It's in the whole of this journey where the film seems more robust... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

94% 3 Faces (2018) In these times... the filmmaker creates spaces for women and respects them scrupulously, and all this is mixed with absolute naturalness with the reflection on the artistic exercise... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
90% Climax (2018) But [director Gaspar] Noé seems more interested in the absolute vacuum, because neither the characters have substance, nor the gags go beyond the... easy, superficial and obscene school yard... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
100% Leave No Trace (2018) A small, intimate film, contained in both scale and content, but undoubtedly solid. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

33% Fahrenheit 451 (2018) The "firemen" burn tomes, but also celluloid, sheet music and hard drives... Until then, everything is right in the process of adaptation ... but here the writers feel the need to build a macguffin in the plot... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 14, 2018
No Score Yet Ten Years Thailand (2018) The premise (four Thai filmmakers imagining what their country will be like in ten years, as it was done in Hong Kong with Ten Years in 2015) allows us to be offered a wide range of genres... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

75% To the Ends of the World (Les confins du monde) (2018) If we add to this the innocuous presence of Gérard Depardieu's character... and that the staging is, at best... a clumsy and soulless imitation of Apocalypse Now, little remains to be rescued from the final result.

61% Summer (Leto) (2018) On the other hand, the stylistic decisions of the director bring freshness to the set... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

100% One Day (Egy nap) (2018) Meanwhile, a camera that moves through the spaces revealing its status as an observer (sometimes close, sometimes modest) underpins the staging of this contained but forceful film. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

92% Birds of Passage (Pájaros de verano) (2018) [Co-Directors Ciro Guerra and Cristina Gallego] articulate the film through a strong mythological component... [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

Read More | Posted May 31, 2017
89% You Were Never Really Here (2018) Joe is, to all intents and purposes, a ghost. The camera know it, and from there our fascination to contemplate it. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

83% Patti Cake$ (2017) Beyond a protagonist who defends her role with skill and charisma, the development of Patty Cake$ is dishearteningly routine. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

44% Bushwick (2017) Its characters are flimsy, its narrative articulation certainly clumsy and its outcome, anticlimactic. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

100% The Prince of Nothingwood (2017) The passion for creation, no matter how clumsy, propels the lives of these movie men and their countless fans. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

14% Frost (2017) The footage is too long in the first half for so little raw material, and even in its second part it's free from certain excesses of verbiage. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 25, 2017
94% 24 Frames (2018) The film fails to escape the reiteration and 24 Frames is quickly exhausting, drowned in its own proposal. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

Read More | Posted May 25, 2017
96% The Florida Project (2017) Baker offers little hope, and the only certainty is that childhood, and innocence, always have an expiration date. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 25, 2017
79% The Day After (Geu-hu) (2018) It's not the director's best film, but there's no doubt that it's still a small worldly pleasure to wander around Hong Sangsoo's soggy world of soju. [Full review in Spanish]‐ Caimán Cuadernos de Cine
Read More | Posted May 25, 2017
