3.5/5 I Care a Lot (2020) Fico Cangiano A wickedly fun ride. Rosamund Pike vs Peter Dinklage is a blast. Will make you think and feel uncomfortable, in a good way. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

4.5/5 Nomadland (2020) Fico Cangiano A beautiful audiovisual poem that captures the power of the human spirit and that explores the pain that keeps us moving forward. The best film of 2020. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

3/5 Saint Maud (2019) Fico Cangiano It's an impressive directorial debut by Rose Glass, where atmosphere and execution are really important. And she nails both. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

2.5/5 Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar (2021) Fico Cangiano It's so silly and absurd that it's almost impossible to resist. Jamie Dornan and the music shine the most. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

4/5 Malcolm & Marie (2021) Fico Cangiano Zendeya is phenomenal here, and John David Washington isn't far behind. Sam Levinson's claustrophobic and intense exploration of art, criticism, loyalty, regret and resentment, results in a unique and fascinating watch. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

1.5/5 Bliss (2021) Fico Cangiano A decent premise that doesn't go anywhere. A disappointing science fiction that wants to be more than it really is. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

4/5 One Night in Miami (2020) Fico Cangiano An incredible directorial debut from Regina King. One that explores powerful themes that strongly echo today. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

4/5 News of the World (2020) Fico Cangiano A gripping and poignant tale of survivor and heroism. A satisfying old-fashioned western, that includes one of the best sequences of the year. And yes, Tom Hanks is great. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

4/5 Promising Young Woman (2020) Fico Cangiano Revenge done good. Wickedly entertaining and smart, and with such a powerful message finely executed by director Emerald Fennell. Carey Mulligan is fantastic. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

4/5 Soul (2020) Fico Cangiano A spiritual cousin (of sorts) to Inside Out, Soul is another example of Pixar at its best. It's ambitious and inspiring filmmaking about life [Full review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Dec 25, 2020
2.5/5 Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Fico Cangiano The 80s setting is fun, the score is great and Gal Gadot once again rocks. That said, the story is disappointing and the villains leave much to be desired. As huge fan of the first film, this sequel is a letdown. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

2.5/5 Greenland (2020) Fico Cangiano Greenland soars above the usual end-of-the-world disaster mayhem because it focuses on a family's fight to survive. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

Posted Dec 24, 2020
2.5/5 Tenet (2020) Fico Cangiano Christopher Nolan's most ambitious and complex film to date, also ends up being his most cold and lacking emotion. Not all of it works, but it's still better than many of the other releases this year. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2020
3.5/5 The Midnight Sky (2020) Fico Cangiano George Clooney's best directorial effort so far. Part Gravity, part The Revenant and part Ad Astra, it hooks you with incredible visuals and meditative tone, while it explores themes of doom and hope. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Dec 23, 2020
2.5/5 The Prom (2020) Fico Cangiano Good intentions and star-power aside, The Prom simply doesn't deliver on its potential. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

Posted Dec 7, 2020
2.5/5 Half Brothers (2020) Fico Cangiano Sometimes too sugary for its own good, Half Brothers manages to fly thanks to its two leads, good intentions and some funny social jabs included. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

2/5 Trail of Ashes (2020) Fico Cangiano An impressive all-around production can't overcome the muddled story its trying to tell. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Dec 7, 2020
2/5 Hillbilly Elegy (2020) Fico Cangiano Solid performances by Amy Adams and Glenn Close can't save this too-on-the-nose soap drama that tries too hard to move you, but doesn't. Offers some touching moments, but Ron Howard's latest is a muddled affair. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

2/5 Buddy Games (2019) Fico Cangiano Should've had more of the actual games action, which I did enjoy. Now the rest of it? Not good. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

3/5 Freaky (2020) Fico Cangiano Effectively takes the genre to refreshing new corners. An unexpected blend that delivers the laughs and thrills. Vince Vaughn elevates everything here. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

2.5/5 Jungleland (2019) Fico Cangiano Charlie Hunnam and Jack O'Connor are both great as brothers in this decent exploration of dreams, reality and survivor. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Nov 12, 2020
4/5 Mank (2020) Fico Cangiano Fincher's latest is a riveting trip to a bygone era. An exploration of 30s Hollywood, politics and ideals. A helluva production and love letter. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

4/5 Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020) Fico Cangiano Borat 2 is hilarious! A very timely follow-up to the original 2006 film, that manages to overcome present obstacles to deliver laughs and some jaw-dropping moments. Best comedy of the year. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

2.5/5 On the Rocks (2020) Fico Cangiano Bill Murray is as charming as ever, but can't fully manage to salvage this light, stale comedy-drama. Far from Sofia Coppola's best. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

2.5/5 Rebecca (2020) Fico Cangiano Everything looks and sounds gorgeous, but the story just doesn't transcend into something interesting or refreshing for our times. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

3/5 Love and Monsters (2020) Fico Cangiano Great mix of monster action, cool effects and fun tone. Also, more emotional than expected, which is great. Dylan O'Brien is wonderful in the lead. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2020
4/5 The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020) Fico Cangiano A powerful and relevant historic legal drama. Sorkin's script doesn't disappoint and his direction is better here. Plus, the cast is incredible. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

4/5 Charm City Kings (2020) Fico Cangiano Loud and slick, Charm City Kings is a fantastic coming-of-age story set in the streets of Baltimore and it's bike culture. Angel Manuel Soto's direction is lights out and the performances are great. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

1/5 Hubie Halloween (2020) Fico Cangiano As much as a like Halloween, Sandler and the rest of the cast, this one's pretty bad. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

4/5 The Devil All the Time (2020) Fico Cangiano A poetic, haunting story of generations, sins and bad luck. Tom Holland is great, while Robert Pattinson steals the show. A solid exploration and execution of dark material - one that stays with you for a while. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT
