Sky Captain and the world of tomorrow

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. USA, 2004 (106 minutes). Director. Kerry Conran. Performers: Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Giovanni Ribisi, Angelina Jolie ,.

Tribute to comics and classic cinema, a retro adventure that dares to delve into the serials of the 1930s to reach the old science fiction films of the 1950s. All this thanks to some exceptional computer-generated backgrounds in front of which the actors walk. Except for them, everything is digital.

Rocky

USA, 1976 (113 minutes). Director: John G. Avildsen. Performers: Sylvester Stallone, Talla Shire, Burgess Meredith, Burt Young.

As the rest of the films in the series degenerated, hardly anyone remembers that the first film about the Italian Colt was not bad at all. He even achieved three Oscars (although above Taxi Driver Y All the president’s men, which is an exaggeration). Rocky it is based on some wonderful dialogues, written by Stallone himself. It is convenient to see it with the nostalgia of an adolescent spectator.

Capital

The capital. France, 2012 (114 minutes). Director: Costa-Gavras. Performers: Gabriel Byrne, Gad Elmaleh, Liya Kebede.

Costa-Gavras continues to be active and committed to his time. In the seventies he delivered works that are still alive, such as Z, The confession Y Site status, and in the new millennium he has been able to film works of the stature of Amen Y Arcadia. On this occasion, the activities of an upstart heir to a banking empire, played with solid conviction by Gad Elmaleh, allow the filmmaker to elaborate a dissection of the economic crisis, which in some sections becomes too didactic, and a sour portrait of the handling power.

A clockwork orange

A Clockwork Orange. United Kingdom, 1971 (135 minutes). Director: Stanley Kubrick. Cast: Malcolm McDowell, Patrick Magee, Michael Bates.

In its paroxysm of wild images, traversed by only apparent havens of peace, the political parable it proposes A clockwork orange it is set in a futuristic environment that is bleakly close: a society consumed by violence and hedonism. Kubrick shows a crash course in film editing, a lecture on the expressive uses of staging, and a sour reflection on the double standards of a social system that seems unable to provide answers.

The last man

The Last Man Standing. 1996 (100 minutos). Director: Walter Hill. Intérpretes: Bruce Willis, William Sanderson, Christopher Walken, Bruce Dern.

On some occasions, Walter Hill remembers the great director he was, the filmmaker who dazzled in the seventies with Driver Y Outlaws of legend. Nearly 20 years later, Hill regained his pulse with a sneaky adaptation of a literary classic like Red harvest. And with the spirit of dark movie classical, however, visually wrapped the story in western ways to follow in the footsteps of a gunman who works for the highest bidder, but who, of course, always ends up imposing his own law.

USA, 1982 (130 minutes). Director: Clint Eastwood. Performers: Clint Eastwood, Freddie Jones, David Huffamn, Warren Clarke.

Clint Eastwood launches into an action-packed intrigue, pursuing his attempts to gain control of a modern Soviet fighter plane. Although it shows a good narrative pulse, the film shows an excess of footage, although the dramatic evolution of the intrigue captures thanks to a very well dosed script.
