inception | 2010


Resultat d'imatges

For four years I had been trying to watch that film and finally I've done it. Inception presents a new way of sci-fi or fantastic cinema. It has an amazing and complex story behind that the spectator understands and nowadays the general public that goes to the cinema, the popular cinematic culture wants to be entertained for a while and not thinking how this awesome plot can be understood or not. Christopher Nolan did that with that film and this is the reason of it's success. 

Inception as the word says is based on the origins of everything, of us. Mr.Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) knows how to enter to the dreams and basically how to move in those dream, we could tell he is an expert on dreams more that he lives in reality. One day, he and his fellow colleague are offered the task of their life. They need to do an inception on somebody else's mind and if they succeed Cobb, that has been drawn away from his family for the most part of his life, will be free of charges - he was accused of a murder - and will be able to go home. 

This task includes six people that are going to have to go under three dreams in order to accomplish the task. This part is the most interesting one because of the six people two are the experts on dreaming (Cobb and his fellow, Arthur), one girl is an architect (to build the dreams - as if they were labyrinths), another is a forger and the last one is a merchant of sedatives. Together they are going to experience, with the audience, an awesome adventure that keeps you on the edge of your seat and that makes you feel as if you were on a maze .

So this is a great movie to watch and the more times you watch it the more things you discover. Is probably one of those films who is a bit long, two hours and fifteen minutes but that seems very short and Nolan, the director, plays with the time in the movie as well so something that seems to be very fast in the movie becomes very slow - [spoiler] that ban falling into the river - and it plays with the viewer. 
As for the cast, I think this film counted with amazing actors such as Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, Michael Cane, Tom Hardy or Marion Cotillard among others that did a good job. The music by Hans Zimmer is quite amusing, it really puts you on the middle of the film as if you were one more character. I've talked about the screenplay before but I think this is a very good one, very smart and complex but at the same time simple. So I would recommend anybody to see that movie, there aren't "buts" or anything, really enjoyable for everybody which converts this movie to one of the best movies of the last years.

coco | 2017

Coco és una pel·lícula que té el seu punt de partida en la història d'una família que viu a un llogaret, en castellà "aldea" de Mèxic, Santa Cecília. Només amb el nom fictici d'aquest llogaret tenim una pista del fil conductor i l'essència del film, la música.
Així doncs, ens trobem amb una família, fabricants de sabates tots ells, que - per una raó que s'explica al principi del film - tenen vetada la música en tots els àmbits de la seva vida. Tanmateix en Miguel, el més jove de la família, és un gran fanàtic d'Ernesto de la Cruz, qui sembla ser el més gran dels cantants mexicans de tots els temps. Per aquest motiu ell vol "viure el seu moment" i esdevenir músic encara que això suposi enfrontar-se i allunyar-se de la seva família.
Durant la pel·lícula, Miguel aprendrà a veure des d'una prespectiva el significat d'estimar i a valorar la seva família i també veurà quines són les conseqüències del pensament basat en la idea de "viure el …

modern times | 1936

I've seen parts of this movie on my history class, on tv, everywhere... and it's not a coincidence it's because Chaplin just shows to the world the reality, like Steinbeck or Fitzgerald did, but using images. The Kid was a film where Chaplin wanted to show the poberty of people on the 'roaring twenties'. It was the 'dark side' of the american dream. With Modern Times Chaplin shows us the new techniques of productivity (fordism and or taylorism) and how lots of people lost their opportunities, like Chaplin does in the movie, because they didn't have resources.
Chaplin is a genius, thats widely known and common among people. Because he knew, at the time, how did the world evolutionate. And portrayed it in a way that may seem very easy, know that we see it with prespective, but that surely was very difficult to do at the time.
Modern Times is clearly a masterpiece and with the limitations of the cinematography of the time shows the reality of the Great …

tren de nit a lisboa | 2013

Tren de nit a Lisboa és una pel·lícula que gira entorn un llibre i el seu autor, d'origen portuguès i, com moltes altres, està basada també en un llibre. Sota el meu parer, a més, la manera com es narren els fets en ella, la fan una pel·lícula que és una mena de "llibre visual".
Hi ha diversos temes que es tracten en el film que, especialment, em recorden a la manera en què estic últimament percebent les lectures que faig i potser per això l'he qualificada de llibre visual. 
En primer lloc, m'agradaria destacar la idea del viatge, similar que seria una "road movie" on els personatges troben el sentit d'allò que estaven buscant realitzant aquest viatge al seu interior, i a un indret nou.  En aquest cas no hi ha carretera, ni diverses parades, si no que només n'hi ha una, Lisboa. El protagonista, Raimund, un professor d'escola divorciat amb una vida que ell descriu com "avorrida"- i percebem que sense grans aspiracions vitals-, reali…
