RELEASES! Great Expectations (2012); To the wonder (2012) | BASIC CLASSICS! The Honey Pot (1967)

April 8, 2013

The new Dicken’s adaptation is already here. Critics have not been very flattering but it always a nice experience to watch a British adaptation of this immortal writer. The last year we could enjoy of the most beautiful film about Great Expectations filmed by David Lean in 1946 (and distributed in Spain as Cadenas Rotas), in fact, this huge novel has been read by the higher grades but, not be seen before the end of the novel! There is a very important American release this weekend, the new film by Terrence Malick after the controversial The Tree of Life.

RELEASES! Great Expectations (2012)

Mike Newell is not a brilliant director but he is very efficient. All films can not be masterpieces but at least they have to be well made. He is specializes in adaptations of novels as Harry Potter (J. K. Rowling), Love in the time of cholera (Gabriel García Márquez) or The man in the iron mask (Alexandre Dumas). His great success was Four Weddings and a Funeral in 1994. Starring Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes, this Great Expectations comeback will be fine because the amazing stories of Pip, the convict Magwitch or the mysterious Miss Havisham are assured.

This is an absolute controversial film. It was released in the last Venice Film Festival where it was nominated (as Best Film).

BASIC CLASSICS! The Honey Pot (1967)

It is a pleasure to introduce this masterpiece by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, one of the great American directors ever. You know because he is who filmed basic classics as All about Eve (Eva al desnudo, 1950), Cleopatra (Cleopatra, 1963) or The Bareffot Contess (La condesa descalza, 1954, starring Ava Gardner). All his films are excellent! The honey pot was one of the last productions of this genius, starring Rex Harrison and set in the world of theatre. A delight!

At last we can enjoy of one of the gems of the American indie cinema, three years afther its release in the rest of the world! However this opportunity must be seized. As it is said in the Peter Bradshaw’s review of this post “Blue Valentine is certainly a serious, intelligent film which deserves to be considered in the same light as Sam Mendes’s Revolutionary Road”. The other interesting release is Mama, a horror film that has become a success in Spain, in fact, there is a Spanish producer (Guillermo del Toro included). And finally, two absolute basic classics in Filmoteca Española, the particular John Huston’s Moby Dick adaption and Falstaff, one of Orson Wells’ works rolled in our country with several Shakespeare’s theatre plays. We must go to the movies!

This interesting film is released with a considerable delay; it could not be an impediment! An intense romance is waiting for us starring Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams, a couple very well chosen, indeed, Michell was nominated in the Oscars.

BASIC CLASSICS! FALSTAFF (1965)

Shakespeare again. Because he never is old fashioned. The master of cinema Orson Wells come to Spain because he could not make films in Hollywood with absolute freedom. This co-production between Spain and Switzerland is very curious because, in the same film, we can enjoy with a mix of four Shakespeare’s plays: Henry IV, Henry V, Richard II and The merry wives of Windsor.

RELEASES! Life of Pi (2012); Le Capital (2012) | BASIC CLASSICS! Sunset Boulevard (1950)

November 28, 2012

After a two horrifying weeks (I am talking about releases) the Spanish cinemas present two interesting films because these movies are created by two acclaimed filmmakers, Ang Lee and Constantin Costa-Gavras, curiously, no one of them are British or American. The recommendation of the week is completed with one of my prefer movie ever: Sunset Boulevard. The most perfect film that I have ever seen. Good weekend!

LIFE OF PI (2012) by Ang Lee

Ang Lee is this kind of director who falls well. He has rolled some of the most successful movies of the last years as Crouching Tiger & Hidden Dragon (2000), Sense and Sensibility (1995) or Brokeback Mountain (2005). He can realized blockbusters but with a special touch of sensibility that it could get the difficult harmony between box-office and criticism. In this occasion, Lee presents a nice best seller’s adaptation, Life of Pi, the amazing story of a boy who needs to survive in a boat after a shipwreck with a wild tiger in it. The gossips from Hollywood talk about it as the favourite film in the next Oscars Ceremony.

Life of Pi [Vida de Pi, 2012] Directed by Ang Lee

Screenplay: David Magee (Novel by Yann Martel)

Cast: Suraj Sharma, Irrfan Khan, Gérard Depardieu, Tabu…

LE CAPITAL (2012) by Constantin Costa-Gavras

He is the man associated with a cinematographic subgenre: Politic Cinema. The veteran Costa-Gavras is again here because he wants to show us her particular vision of this crisis. All his films are about great themes (especially about historic conflicts) as Missing (1982) about the Chilean dictatorship or Hanna K. (1983) about the Middle East conflict. Le Capital is a particular film because it is talked in English and French. This is one of the more attractive releases of the month!

BASIC CLASSICS! SUNSET BOULEVARD (1950) by Billy Wilder

A very inspired Billy Wilder rolled this spectacular film in the Golden Age of American Cinema at 50s. A ironic and corrosive portrait of the Hollywood underworld, with a fantastic rhythm, brilliant dialogues, superb interpretations and a script with any error. Simply perfect!

RELEASES! Trouble with the curve (2012); Chasing Mavericks (2012) | The Bigamist (1953)

November 20, 2012

After a horrible weekend without interesting releases the next is not looks like better. However, the Ang Lee’s comeback, Life of Pi, is near and I am sure that this will be one of the best American films of the year. At any rate, if we want to watch a release we could chose between these two films with similar theme: sports. Enjoy this!

Trouble with the curve (2012) by Robert Lorenz

The Robert Lorenz’s debut is been released in our country starring Clint Eastwood, indeed, he was his assistant director in the beautiful The Bridges of Madison County (1995)or in the awarded Mystic River (2003). This is a nice story about improvement and sportsmanship. It looks like a film friendly.

Chasing Mavericks (2012) by Curtis Hanson

Despite the sad Hanson’s trajectory, this filmmaker is the director of one of the masterpieces at 90s: L.A. Confidential. An excellent movie from which there is no trace in his later films. What a pity. If the previous movie is about baseball, this is about surfing so it is not only appropriate to the season in which hits theaters. Anyway, seems very entertaining.

Chasing Mavericks (2012) [Persiguiendo Mavericks, 2012] Directed by Curtis Hanson

The Bigamist (1953) by Ida Lupino

The Bigamist is a classic drama with Ida Lupino as director and actress, at the same time and with a curious gossip: the story was written by Collier Young, recently divorced from Lupino, only to remarry her co-star – Joan Fontaine!
