• The Kingdom of the Fairies

    The Kingdom of the Fairies

    I started this month with a ferocious early cinema marathon and I wasn't even realizing I was approaching my 3500th entry on Letterboxd. My favorites so far are A Nightmare, Snowball Fight and The Flying Train. George Melies is probably my favorite director regarding 1890-1900s cinema. He was a genius.
    The Kingdom of the Fairies is truly stylish and stunning, especially the underwater scene. I loved the use of colors. One year later A Trip to the Moon but already an incredible variety of sets.

  • Soul

    Soul

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The pain of seeing someone else living your life better than you did and the pain of never fitting in. I felt it.
    Pretty far from my Top 5 Pixar but still sweet and solid.

  • House of 1000 Corpses

    House of 1000 Corpses

    ★★★★

    Year of 1000 Films
    I can't believe I did it! I'd like to thank the pandemic and rising unemployment and decline for this achievement. No way I'll make it again.
    This was a crazy, wild and badass one. It reminded me a little of TCSM2.

  • Eddie Murphy: Delirious

    Eddie Murphy: Delirious

    Iconic and so alive! 37 years ago but it feels like another world.
    I hope to feel alive in 2021, cause 2020 was a constant stand-by.

    Academy be like: much to think about 😔🚬

  • Mank

    Mank

    Just like any other film about actual filmmaking, Mank's job is putting the film on which it's based even more into the legend. I don't know how accurate Gary Oldman's performance is. I think he was good but I gotta said that the film has quite disappointed me 🤷‍♂️

  • Diego Maradona

    Diego Maradona

    02/04/2005 - According to Jim is interrupted on TV and the Pope's passing is announced
    25/11/2020 - Maradona's passing is announced shortly before my team's football match on TV

    Two flashbulb memories that will remain forever in my heart.
    Two different figures, both religious and influential in their own way.
    RIP Dieguito 💙 Live is life

  • Under the Skin

    Under the Skin

    Less fucked up and absurd than I expected, probably because I watched Inland Empire for the first time just a month ago. Under the Skin is a reverse and sci-fi The Brown Bunny. It's not that deep but very stylish, a film for the big screen and definitely a visual masterpiece. From a certain perspective, the plot is all about different men reacting to Scarlett Johansson's beauty. Men like hopeless mindless pigs, à la Ms .45. Actually it's more about…

  • One from the Heart

    One from the Heart

    ★★★★★

    New instant Coppola #1 favorite, this is beautiful to tears.
    One from the Heart is a dreamy and eye-candy love story filled with a wonderful score, neon lights and Fellini-esque magic. More than once I couldn't believe this film was real, some scenes really look like they were shot from another world. It's such a pity this was then a flop and now a forgotten beauty. This came out after The Godfather(s) and Apocalypse Now, it was a hot take but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's stylish and lovely like few others.
