WTF! This is a joke
MEN is nothing more than the delusions of a work team, headed by its director, without any kind of foundation.
And I can't use the hackneyed "it's a film for 'knowledgeable' or 'intelligent' people", it doesn't work because it's not the case. We only watch a great photography in an unbeatable location that goes down the drain from minute 1 and surpasses everything that is despicable in a third act full of garbage.
The director's debut feature has gone too much to his head, being Ex-Machina a great film... and to those critics who compare him to the best David Cronenberg or that he surpasses Lars Von Trier, just tell them to go to a specialist, for their own good.
Donnalyn has a gift, and that gift is that her good vibes, her joy, her talent and her music transcends the screen or the headphones and makes you enjoy and feel like partying! And dancing and enjoying and that's just what music is for. The music video is all this and more and proves that the fun as the show must go on.
You're Not Alone (2020)
It is a trap.
That's what this film is, nothing more, nothing less. The final twist (I won't reveal it) has nothing to do with what has been narrated for more than 75 minutes and on top of that it is left without explanation, because some people believe that open endings are the best, I'm one of those people, but as long as there is a motivation that is not found here.
The development of the characters can be improved, the house, which has its point, is totally wasted and the flashbacks bring nothing but confusion.
Katia Winter's performance is far above the film.
A product that our mind will discard for self-defence.
La abuela (2021)
Entertaining, but predictable
Paco Plaza continues to demonstrate his skill behind the camera, but as he did in Veronica, he does not get rid of the gimmicky and plays it safe with the effective. It seems that he has found his comfort zone and does not want to leave that bubble.
The film fails in how predictable it is, as you don't need more than 15 minutes to know how the story and the final climax will develop.
The best is the interpretative duel between the grandmother, magnificent Vera Valdez, and the no less spectacular performance of Almudena Amor, carrying almost all the interpretative weight of the film and coming out much more than successful.
In conclusion, you are left with a bittersweet taste because this director with these actresses should have produced a much more rounded product.
NieR: Automata (2017)
The best videogame I've ever played in my life, and the one I've played the most hours too. It is a masterpiece to which I will always keep a great memory.
The Stay (2021)
6.1... is this a joke?
As of March 5, 2022, 1,235 people have given it 10 stars, 1,199 have given it a 9 and 1011 have given it an 8 and that makes me shock. A movie with no script, no plot, no technical means? I refuse to believe that I'm one of those arrogant critics, so I don't want to crush the movie, but I was going to give it between 2 and 3 stars but I'd better give it a 1 to even it out and get it to its fair score.
I don't like to judge before time.
I must confess that as the film unfolded, I had some moments of doubt about what feelings it was producing in me; Was it slow or boring? No, despite his long periods with absolutely nothing happening except time itself. Was I seeing a genius or a madness from a new feature film director? Neither yes nor no, because didn't feel this like a work of art or little a jewel and nor did I feel like the director was making fun of me, beyond a very David Lynch moment that had nothing to do with style of the movie and that contributed absolutely nothing.
So, with the credit titles I asked myself the definitive question; Do you like that? And the answer took longer than normal to reach the surface of my thought ... And that answer came with an anger, because I'm tired of it almost always having to be religious fanaticism (or what is the same coming from the USA) Christian fanatism, because we all know that the only ones who are bad on the earth are the believers in God. They had a thousand ways of explaining the same thing to us, but after so much trouble it all comes down to that, which was already dropped at the beginning of the film, but as a good Christian, I don't like to judge before time.
Life can be wonderful and amazing...
Or rather the opposite. Well, that's what the director seems to be trying to convey to us and what if he succeeds. It is a movie where the depressing is visible almost in every frame. For this and despite a low budget, he knows how to play with the lenses, the camera cuts, the old and abandoned buildings so typical of the recently abandoned USSR. He delves into this idea of a sad world doomed to failure and the fact that we never see an evil that you can call a villain in order to position ourselves fuels that anguish.
Even good turns into bad and good actions into heinous events.
It is not made to entertain, it simply terrorizes us without makeup or sweeteners. Take it or leave it.
