    ★★★★

    By going through some reviews of Mank, you can find a pattern that we can consider "publicly accepted". That is, that David Fincher's 11th film, with a script written by his late father, Jack Fincher, is a "love letter to Hollywood" and many variations of this same headline. Respectfully, Mank is, at the very least, a letter announcing the end of a fleeting romance more than a nostalgic declaration of affection.

    The film focuses on the writing process of the…

    The Lion King

    It's an abomination. It's a cancer in the history of cinema. How can this be? How have we come to this? How is this possible?

    How are these amazing technologies and special-effects artists wasted in a cash-grab soulless piece of trash?

    Why did they take one of the best films of all time, and take every single once of soul, of personality, of love and emotion out of it? Because thats what photo-realism did for this film, absolutely destroyed it…

    ★★★½

    Although well made and well acted it lacks a point to it, specially when dealing with such a hard subject matter. There is much surface but not enough nuance most of the times which makes it not only less than it could be but also a bit too much exploitative for my own taste.

    I reinforce this tho, it is well made, Kurzel is a great director, no questions asked on that part.

    ★★★★★

    Spencer is a fairytale of a princess lost in time and space, shackled in a kingdom of past and tradition, trying to find her way back home in a truly heartbreaking but hopefully beautiful that offers Diana nothing more than love, admiration and something that might resemble the story we all wanted for her.

    Stewart best performance of her career, Larrain masterful direction and Steven Knight script might have just delivered the best film of the year.

    Parasite

    ★★★★★

    The only possible Palm D'Or winner, the newest, and in my opinion, his best, Bong Joon-ho Parasite is a masterpiece from the director who was yet to make a film I actually loved.

    A few days later, I'm still lost for words with it. A weird mixed of genres, horror, thriller, comedy, drama, that work out in a perfect blend of entertainment and arthouse cinematic art.

    Music, acting, cinematography, editing. You name it. The screenplay woow's me not just for the themes, but mostly because of the way it builds tension, La Haine style, ready for the final explosive climax.

    Yeah. Masterpiece.
