Diarios de motocicleta (2004)
One Man's Journey To Find His Destiny
I had the privilege last night to attend the London premiere of this movie at the NFT and I have to say it did really impress me. We were also treated to an entertaining interview with Walter Salles where he talked profusely of his films, in particular Central Station, Behind the Sun and the film subject matter.
On the film itself I believe this is one of the best films this year so far.
It is beautifully shot and the performances by both Garcia Bernal and De la Serna are very mature and natural. The documentary-style cinematography, the use of black and white stills and the incorporation of improvised dialogue give the social content that otherwise would have been excessively throw into it had the filmmaker succumbed to the temptation of giving the future communism ideas of Che Guevara a more important role in the form of open political manifest. One can only be relieved that instead of being an evident defense of inequality in Latin America, this film is basically a man's journey into the purpose of his life.
Fight Club (1999)
A very intelligent movie!
Once again, Edward Norton gives an outstanding performance in this movie that, however brilliantly told and shot, is not for all audiences. You may find people warning other people not to see this movie. But if you watch this movie, you will probably find yourself realising about your role in life and society.
Now this is the time for Oscars to Norton and Helena Bonham-Carter.
Breaking the Waves (1996)
Two thumbs up!!!
Emily Watson gives the best female performance of the Nineties in this powerful film. Her performance is even beyond the Oscars. I had never felt so much a character and thanks to Watson I had a trip on time and space.
