Latin American Challenge (February 2018)

#121

Post by jeroeno » February 9th, 2018, 5:14 pm

Last of the Ariel Award winners I was able to find:
17. Güeros (2014) great debut with a lot of interesting shots
18. La ley de Herodes (1999) loved this one, something completely different
19. Bajo la metralla (1983) started out great but lost a lot of steam in the middle
20. El misterio del Trinidad (2003) boring and poorly directed

Moved on to the Brazilian list
21. Toda Nudez Será Castigada (1973) some funny bits but not great
22. Rio Zona Norte (1957) liked it, some very good acting
23. Tudo Bem (1978) felt a little crowded at some point but there was enough to like
24. Todas as Mulheres do Mundo (1966) what would happen if woody allen was brazilian

9 more for a bronze award. no problemo.

1. 25 Watts (2001, Uruguay) - 6.5/10

Movie is okay, although they tried to put in a few too many quirky characters.

I've heard this movie is pretty good. What did you think?
.Quite uneven for me. Tried too much to be something different, arty and conventional at the same time.

Too phoney for avant-garde -_-

PS. my apologies to the fans.

3. The Pope's Toilet (2007, Uruguay)

Based on a true story, this is about the pope's visit to a small town in Uruguay in the late 1980s. Fascinating look at the lengths people will go to to try and earn a living, and try to capitalize on a once-in-a-lifetime event. Heartbreaking and informative at the same time. Going on my 500<400 list.

Starting off with classic Mexican cinema -

1. Doña Bárbara (Fernando de Fuentes/Miguel M. Delgado, 1943)
continuing with more Mexican classics...

2. Crepúsculo / Twilight (Julio Bracho, 1945)

Fine Mexican noir of the romantic variation, with most of the film consisting of a famous doctor (Arturo de Córdova, quite excellent) remembering a romance that turned into a love triangle, and then tragedy. I watched this pretty late and was pretty tired and probably didn't get all the nuances but the way in which it deals with memory and obsession reminded me at times of both Laura and Vertigo, and there's a deep feeling of melancholy and regret suffusing the whole film - and an ending that was actually a bit unexpected. DP Alex Phillips' moody - verging on surreal at times - camerawork is quite memorable.
Here's to the fools who dream.

5. Fantasmas de la ruta (José Celestino Campusano, 2013, Arg) - Bikers and crime in the rough neighborhoods surrounding Buenos Aires. The amateur cast might be authentic, but the acting just isn't very good.
6. Milagro en Roma (Lisandro Duque Naranjo , 1989, Col) - Part of the Amores difíciles series written by Gabriel García Márquez.

Have they changed that much? I mean the ending seemed positive, but Colombia doesn't appear as a safe country to me.
Or am I missing your irony ?

No irony, things are changing. Medellin is on the forefront of change in Colombia, it is one of the safer of the big cities by now. Barrios like La Sierra are less of a no-go area compared to the time of the documentary. Of course there is still a lot of crime, but no more all out war. Colombia is not that unsafe and when you use some sense it is a very nice country to visit.

2. The Official Story (1985, Luis Puenzo)
A nicely understated drama, that didn't blow my mind in any sense but deals with some interesting stuff (the disappearance of "subversives" during Argentina's Dirty Wars, and the ignorance of much the public). I appreciate how bold the film was for approaching these issues when they were so fresh.

5. Postales de Leningrado / Postcards from Leningrad (Venezuela 07)

Rather confusing story of 1970s Venezuelan guerilla fighters, told by a the young girl whose parents were involved. Quite a bit of fantasy mixed in.
