    ★★★★

    Antonioni and Walter Hugo Khouri are the same person basically.

    Films about the lust of men, and where a duo of women are the ones who suffer. Here the confrontation is even more intense, because it means something more than just an empty night.

    Avengers: Endgame

    A ray of hope comes from Captain Marvel (who's even more Saiyan than Thor was before), but then it is quickly reverted into oblivion: Thanos is killed in a ruthless, unceremonial manner, but to…
