O Lugar do Morto (1984)
Mainly a good work from Portuguese director António Pedro Vasconcellos. A good script and fair performances make this whodunit Portuguese thriller an interesting film.
Lisbon is photographed in a strange moody way, as if its maze of streets and places reflected the inner conflicts of the characters. The editing is effective and builds up an aura of mystery and sexual tension.
Ana Zanatti's portrait of "Ana Mónica" is still today the ultimate classy, elegant Portuguese femme fatale. Worth a look for so many reasons...
Most of all it is an excellent well told Tale!
"Jaws" is a wonderful work of Cinematic Art! The film understands the need of an extremely accurate Editing job as well as an investment in Character Development.
Most of all, Spielberg not only started the Summer Season Blockbuster back in 1975 but has defined the correct parameters for an effective Thriller as a genre in movie making. Personally i would not change an inch in this movie. Editing is amazing, the actors all of them have the right tone required for their parts and the pace is perfect when allied to John Williams score.
Absolutely brilliant in every way.
Decent Drama with brilliant Sets
Titanic is a fair work from director James Cameron. Sometimes being called on the carpet for it's naive plot and dialogue, this movie had the rare merit of reuniting the public and the critics in an unanimous way: James Cameron's Titanic is an effective work to be remembered. This does not happen so often. For several weeks, this movie had the privilege to score brilliantly on the top charts, as well as conquering major movie awards around the world. Is it fair? Was it overrated? That does not matter, if we accept it for what it stands. It worked perfectly. The artwork is ostentatious and the acting if not perfect is adequate and balanced with the strength of the script written by Cameron himself. Leonardo DiCaprio gives the necessary honesty to the role, while Kate Winslet grants the wit, elegance and grace that a romantic and troubled heroin should have. Miss Winslet was without any doubt the finest actress for the role. Apart from the supremacy of the visual effects, which are the main core of this movie for most of its viewers, Titanic dazzles for the truth and sensibility present in every single detail in every scene. More than a parade of mere flash-backs from an old lady who once was "a dish", this movie is a fine drama made with a solid sense of loyalty and respect for the viewer. You know what happens before you pay for your ticket. You know it is a love story set on a transatlatic and you know people will die. What matters, most of all, is the possibility Cameron gives you to imagine what might have been if you had the chance to find true love under the most ungrateful circumstances. 8 out of 10 for Cameron's sensibility and courage to write a story without having any previous experience as a screen-writer; 10/10 for a brilliant Kate Winslet, a beautiful and talented British actress who proved that acting skills do not have nationality nor beauty patterns. I had fun watching it. It made me feel like I was sharing the inner conflicts felt by the main characters. For its truth and audacity to tell a story already told a thousand times, I bow with respect.
indiana jones and the temple of doom is a fine movie. Avoid all the misunderstandings about racism and darkness in this picture. Most of all, it makes us dream and tag along to adventure and good fun. Harrison Ford fits like a glove the character, and Kate Capshaw gives a fine dumb blonde performance. Ke Huy Quan as Shorty, still makes me smile and remember how i wanted so desperately to be in his place when i was 9 years old. Spielberg proves to rule the land of make believe. Isn´t it what movies are all about?
