May 3, 2016
There's something unshakable about it, and something remarkable about the fact that it exists at all.
April 26, 2016
By The Sea is not exempt of merit, but it's accosted by that commonly made critique that is never quite as clear as it is here: It's preoccupied with style over substance. [Full Review in Spanish]
April 9, 2016
A weird, austere, picturesque, wannabe art film that ticks most of the boxes it's trying to tick and manages not to bore for most of its running time.
April 6, 2016
An emphasis on superficial gloss and prettiness suggest that this is a vanity project driven by Jolie the actress, rather than a serious attempt by Jolie the director.
April 5, 2016
The film establishes a game of desire and envy that's transmitted to perfection with the somber, almost gloomy atmosphere of its images. Definitely a movie that's really ambitious, in both a good and bad sense. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 31, 2016
Beneath its glossy exterior, there's a surprisingly poignant and an alluring drama behind Angelina Jolie's By the Sea; one that discusses the subjects of love, marriage and loss in the most unconventional of ways.
March 2, 2016
Despite Angelina Jolie challenging herself as a director, she still lacks experience when it comes to develop ideas and imprinting them perfectly into an apparently soulless script. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 20, 2016
The conclusions Jolie reaches are admirable, though her roadmap is sometimes muddled.
January 11, 2016
A mature, self-assured look at a marriage. Jolie-Pitt's skill at directing continues and BY THE SEA should not be dismissed as a "favor" movie.
January 11, 2016
This is one of those films where not much happens at a very slow pace. There is some nice scenery in the film. It looks like a good vacation spot. The film? Not much to it.
January 11, 2016
A simple romantic drama that looses strenght as it advances. [Full review in Spanish]
January 4, 2016
Irrelevant and a failed attempt to imitate several forms of classical art cinema. [Full review in Spanish]
January 1, 2016
I couldn't warm to it, yet there's some admiration for Jolie Pitt, obstinately attempting an intimate art movie in the jaws of commercial Hollywood.
December 31, 2015
The third film by Angelina Jolie-Pitt shows us her vulnerable side as a filmmaker, but it's really not something that creates an impact on you. [Full review in Spanish]
December 31, 2015
It's a fascinating experiment, and proof that Jolie truly has directorial chops and an extraordinary eye for imagery.
December 24, 2015
A voyeur's delight featuring Jolie and Pitt cast against type as pervy Peeping Toms ogling another couple.
December 15, 2015
Jolie is aiming for an intimate Cassavetes-style exploration of emotion. Sometimes she gets there.
December 15, 2015
It left me puzzled at what does all this artifice mean.
December 15, 2015
For their first on-screen partnership since Mr & Mrs Smith a decade ago, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie team up for this period drama about a strained marriage, written and directed by Mrs Jolie Pitt herself.
December 13, 2015
This is like an old-fashioned piece of erotica, Jolie Pitt bravely appearing pretty extensively nude, or a sex comedy, except there are no jokes.
