Pre-2016 Film Reviews

The Bridge

Federico Furzan @ Cinelipsis [Spanish]

  • Excerpt: Una trágica y distinta visión a un monumento que esconde muchos secretos de quienes van ahí a tomar una decisión terrible.

The Egyptian

Roderick Heath @ This Island Rod

  • Excerpt: Taking on a rich and intellectually ambitious book like Waltari’s with a setting so rarely tackled on screen, Zanuck and Curtiz were aiming higher than the general run of Technicolor epics until that date.

Lake Mungo

Federico Furzan @ Cinelipsis [Spanish]

  • Excerpt: Un “mockumentary” que a través de imágenes turbias y una historia colmada de enigmas, impacta a los puristas del horror

Mad Max: Fury Road

Federico Furzan @ Cinelipsis [Spanish]

  • Excerpt: Nunca es tarde para regresar a ver la película más importante de acción de la última década.

Tale of Vampire

Roderick Heath @ This Island Rod

  • Excerpt: An atoll of genuine creative spark amongst the largely torpid range of 1990s horror cinema, Tale of a Vampire is one of those movies that doesn’t entirely work, and yet lingers in the memory with rare and mysterious fervour.

You Never Know Women

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: The blu-ray is taken from the 4K restoration of the film, including tinted scenes. (William) Wellman, Jr. quotes from several reviews from 1926 with several writers noting the influence of German films on the visual style.
