RELEASES! Dark shadows (2012) | BASIC CLASSICS! Stage door (1937)May 15, 2012
Sorry for the delay but the cinema post are here. This weekend has been the release of Tim Burton’s comeback. During nineties, Burton was one of the most exiting directors in Hollywood but, unfortunately, his last works has been very disappointing. He is the creator of memorable films like Edward Scissorhands (1993), Ed Wood (1994) or Sleepy Hollow (1999), beautiful modern horror masterworks. This new film about vampires does not look very good but a film directed by Burton is going to have something different. And, if you want to know what a brilliant comedy is, you must to go to Filmoteca Española on Sunday; Stage door is a sample of the Golden Age of American Cinema.
