An original American movie about time travels and others CI-FI adventures. Starring Bruce Willis, this is the most remarkable release in a insipid weekend.

BASIC CLASSICS! Bunny Lake is missing (1965) by Otto Preminger

We can watch on CBA’s theater this interesting film directed by Otto Premiger. A suffocate thriller adapted from Evelyn Piper’s novel starring Laurence Olivier, one of the great British actors whose presence justifies the film’s vision. A British classic that I have watched and it is very amazing, a dark story about a missing child with an unexpected end. I liked it!

Honoured Saul Bass title sequence:



  1. Antonio, if you allow me, I would also like to add a recommendation regarding basic classics for this week. Namely, there is a season of classic films in the Escuela de Telecomunicación of the UPM (Avda. Complutense, 30, metro Ciuda Universitaria, Buses G, 82). Today they are playing Bringing up Child, by Howard Hawks. In the following weeks other films like Vertigo or The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance will be also shown. They are all in original version with english subtitles. The entry is free. Cheers!

  2. sorry, I meant with spanish subtitles!

  3. Thank you for your contribution, Jon. I do not know this Bunny Lake film. Can anybody tell me something about it?

  4. Rosa, I’m afraid I can’t help you, I don’t know the movie. Let Antonio explain it. By the way, I levae the link to the films I mentioned:



  5. Very good films…

  6. BUNNY LAKE IS MISSING is nice, a dark thriller very intense with a personal touch by Preminger.
    Yesterday I was in Yelmo Cines and I watched LOOPER and TO ROME WITH LOVE, the first is not good, this film has some great ideas and brilliant visual moments but it is too violent and male chauvinist. I did not like. Moreover, Allen’s comeback is soft, sweet and funny but it is a film too simple and full of stereotypes. It is nice but this is not a masterpice like ANNIE HALL or HANNAH AND HER SISTERS. Today I am going to watch the Tim Burton’s new film (FRANKIEWINNIE) and the Spanish sensation: BLANCANIEVES by Pablo Berger. This is the Fiesta del Cine and I am going to make the most (two euros movies!!).

  7. I have just seen Frankenweenie (I saw it yesterday, I did not intend to go but my mother got some tickets as a present), and I didn’t like it very much. Tim Burton is a filmmaker who doesn’t do anything but to repit himself each five minutes, or fill his films with homages to classic horror filmes, whose looks and plots he has trivialized. I dislike the people who say that Tim Burton is a Gothic director, because he is not. He has got the aesthetics of the Gothic, but not the content. The primitive German films (it is not a casuality that I started to dislike Burton’s films when I started to know and appreciate the silent German cinema), and the first horror filmes made at the USA during the 30’s and first 40’s, were Gothic, because its stories and plots were as dark and disturbing as its looks. They were stories about the darkest corners in the human soul, involving mad scientifists, murderous sleepwalkers, vampires (presented as parasites, without any hint of glamour or romanticism), robots, evil doppelgangers, deals with the Devil, drug addicts, sorcerers, prostitution, madness, artificial live, tyrants, sickness, death…Nothing of that can be found in Burton’s films: what we have is just freaking odd boys and girls (who are freakish just because they like to be like that, without any particular reason), but good at heart. Even the bad guys are good. The gothics in the Burton’s films are just living room-gothics, with pale faces and dressed all in black, but who never have read Poe or Baudelaire. They have the looks, but not the deathly philosophy.

  8. Hi, Rosa, I have liked the Tim Burton’s comeback because I had lost my faith in him after terrible films like Planet of the Apes or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Characters are fabulous (specially the girl of the cat, I could not stop laughing!) but after a suberb first part the film falls and becomes in a previsible story. The nods to classic horror films are nice but not original (except Gremlins). And interesting date: the script is not written by Tim Burton (but it is based on a short directed by him at 80s).
    Yesterday I could watch the last Brad Pitt’s movie: Killing them soflty, an interesting thriller with a good direction… but little else.
    Tonight I have got invited to the premiere of RUBY SPARKS, I love films about writers or screenwriters! I hope it will be a good story.

  9. The Girl with the cat was inspired in one of the creepy children in the film The Village of the Damned (1960, El pueblo de los malditos), and one of the boys (Edgar) was clearly a sort of hunchback assistant of Dr Frankenstein, from the original James Whale film, in which it was played by Dwigth Frye. This is just what I dislike of this film: you have an “hommage” to a classic horror film (the Godzilla like monster, the teacher who looked like Vincent Price, the dogie with the Elsa Lanchester’s Bride hairdo, the boy who was a sort of Boris Karloff, the Sleepy Hollow windmill, the Batman kite…) each five minutes…and nothing else.
