Director: Orson Welles
“ Não é overrated 8-)

Absolutamente revolucionário para a época em que foi feito. E acabei de ler que, quando perguntaram a Welles "where he got the confidence from as a first-time director to direct a film so radically different from contemporary cinema, he responded, "[From] ignorance...sheer ignorance. There is no confidence to equal it. It's only when you know something about a profession that you are timid or careful." ” - leandroribeiro

Director: Martin Scorsese
“ Este ano está tudo doido, só pode. Em Hugo a questão não é "o filme tomar o seu tempo para se deixar acontecer" (eu não tenho nada contra filmes lentos ou longos, caraças!), é uma questão do ritmo nunca bater certo com a narrativa, de estar povoado de momentos de representação constrangedores e andar cheio de tiques melodramáticos onde eles não fazem sentido. Hugo é uma belíssima história, é mesmo, mas Scorsese parece um amador a realizá-la, um caloiro da escola de cinema. E é pena. ” - leandroribeiro

Director: Ridley Scott
“ Ok, a verdade é esta e vou partilhá-la connvosco. Eu não sou um dos que sente a falta do Ridley Scott (RS) do Alien e do Blade Runner, porque sei de fonte segura que ele nunca existiu. De facto, esses dois filmes foram realizados por Deus Nosso Senhor, e o RS era apenas o tipo com os intestinos mais a jeito quando Ele decidiu fazer os filmes. O pior é que ninguém contou isto ao pobre do RS, e depois foi vê-lo a achar-se bom realizador desastre após desastre. Ora, alguém lho devia ter dito no momento em que ele se lembrou de voltar à carga com a saga do belo monstro, mas não, manteve-se a chachada, e pronto, só podia ter dado nisto. Posto isto, fica a bela cena final do belo monstro a gritar para a câmara como, provavelmente, uma das mais constrangedoras de 2012 (digo 2012 para ser simpático). Beijinhos a todos. ” - leandroribeiro
