Posted Jan 22, 2019
Fyre (2019) Jaime Fa de Lucas Its greatest merit is that it not only reports on the disaster, but also talks about the power of appearances and social networks and how they can build an image that in many cases has little to do with reality. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

Volcano (2018) Jaime Fa de Lucas The metaphors it uses to develop its theme are Volcano's highlights, supported by Vadim Ilkov's wonderful photography. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT

Todos lo saben (2018) Jordi Campeny A great movie that, although it may not achieve the finesse or accuracy of some of [director Asghar Farhadi's] previous works, is very close. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Sep 17, 2018
Scary Mother (2017) Jaime Fa de Lucas Although it's [director] Ana Urushadze's debut film, it seems more like the work of a veteran director who controls the medium perfectly. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT
Posted Sep 13, 2018
Tarde para morir joven (2018) Jaime Fa de Lucas Too Late to Die Young is sustained to a large extent thanks to the photography of Inti Briones, the spontaneity of the dialogues and the naturalness of the performances. [Full review in Spanish] EDIT
