Jauja, Lisandro Alonso, ARG.
- Really good... if you have problems sleeping.
- Could have worked as a series of stills in some art gallery.
Gente de Bien, Franco Lolli, Colombia.
- Colombian neorrealism.
- Is about social class, but not about economic warfare. More about the rights associated with "being part". Do poor people have the right to educate their sons?
- There is a danger of taking it as a sign that nothing is going to change,that "the poor are like this and always will be".
- It is good that Colombians now can watch this. Still long stretches of awakening to go.
Mr. Kaplan, Alvaro Brechner, Uruguay
- Funny Holocaust-related movie (!!).
- Feel-good (yep, same Holocaust-related movie).
- Filmed as a classic comedy with some hints of 21st Century "digitalism",but just a little. It is mostly family 1960s comedy territory.
Open Windows, Nacho Vigalondo , Spain.
- Vigalondo is a very cool guy (nothing to do with the movie, I just met him, and he is a cool cat).
- Opening-windows-in-a-computer gimmick is gimmicky. But, that is the point of the movie,sort of.
- Maybe it will be trapped with others into the "found-footage" subgenre.
- Not so good as "Timecrimes" or "Extraterrestrial" IMHO. Some parts are pulled from Vigalondo`s cool ass. But he is aware of that, his mind was on the gimmick. Which is an interesting one.
Don`t kill me Nacho, I still liked it, but you know, twists are not for everybody.
