‘Magnolia’

EE UU, 1999 (180 minutos). Director: Paul Thomas Anderson. Intérpretes: Tom Cruise, Julianne Moore, Jason Robards, John C. Reilly, Philip Seymour Hoffman.

A full immersion in human relationships. Paul Thomas Anderson addresses such a complex issue in this monumental work. Magnolia reels several parallel stories, some of which will converge, in which inner torment and the search for forgiveness function as narrative engines. His dark images capture the lives of characters that move halfway between the pathetic and the moving, before which the viewer must find their own emotional footholds.

‘The pianist’

The Pianist. France-United Kingdom-Germany, 2002 (145 minutes). Director: Roman Polanski. Performers: Adrien Brody, Thomas Kretschmann, rank Finlay, Maureen Lipman.

A masterpiece by Roman Polanski. The pianist offers a terrifying foray into the horrors of the Holocaust, centered on the dramatic ups and downs of a musician in occupied Poland. Thus, he delves into the miseries of a society that creates monsters; also in his innocent victims, and he covers the story with a tone that oscillates between the phantasmagorical and the poetic.

‘ET the alien’

United States, 1982 (115 minutes). Director: Steven Spielberg. Performers: Dee Wallace, Henry Thomas, Drew Barrymore.

Spielberg creates the most stubborn but also most endearing alien in history and shows his ability to play with the viewer’s feelings. Also to transport him to the magical world of stories told from the heart. Seen today, ET sins of too much sentimentality, yes, but, like it more or less, it shows a dedicated director who loves his characters and who believes in his open-ended bet.

‘The Hunger Games’

Estados Unidos, 2012 (140 minutos). Director: Gary Ross. Intérpretes: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hatcherson, Stanley Tucci, Wes Bentley, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Hemsworth.

It was a matter of time before the popular literary series written by Suzanne Collins hit the screen. And although there was logical objection to the result. The Hunger Games Surprises with some powerful images that are steeped in an adventurous spirit. It is true that it sins from an excessive footage, but among so many dispensable, when not execrable films, its critical message works before a future world ruled by reality television and television cruelty, and it benefits from a shocking interpretation of the now consecrated Jennifer Lawrence.

Inside the Inca empire

Through animations and scenic reconstructions, the series Children of the Sun welcomes what, in its day, was the largest empire in the world.

22.35 / The 1

‘Loving Pablo’

Spain, 2017 (123 minutes). Director: Fernando León de Aranoa. Interpreters: Javier Bardem, Penélope Cruz.

Another splendid work by Fernando León, which approaches the figure of the narco Pablo Escobar in a story dominated by a Javier Bardem transmuted into his character. A sober, precise film that delves into the intimacy of evil, sustained by images with a classic appearance and ardent intentions born from the gaze of a committed filmmaker, but also analytical in his conception of the staging.

22.45 / Antenna 3

A new installment of the series ‘Innocents’

‘A corpse to desserts’

Murder by Death. EE UU, 1976 (90 minutos). Director: Robert Moore. Intérpretes: David Niven, Peter Sellers, Maggie Smith, Peter Falk, Truman Capote, James Coco.

Some of the most famous detectives of cinema and literature are invited to his mansion by an eccentric millionaire. Among them are Charlie Chan, Poirot or Sam Spade. All of them are challenged to solve a crime that will be committed that same day. Of course, the parodic tone is always present in A corpse to desserts, but the story also offers an accurate reflection on the codes of a genre that forces the viewer to act as a detective himself.

23.45 / Hollywood

‘Gravity’

USA, 2013 (90 minutes). Director: Alfonso Cuarón. Cast: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney.

The amazing staging work of the Mexican Alfonso Cuarón (and the extensive technical team of Gravity) Take advantage of technical and digital advancements to create a movie outside the norm. Beyond its possible category of spatial story, Gravity It is disguised first as a realistic drama and, later, almost as an adventure film. Along with this, his overwhelming expertise and the anguishing development of the cosmic adventures of his protagonist do not hide a juicy reflection on loneliness and the proximity of death. Cuarón’s merit lies in playing with the spectacular nature of his astral stage to later enhance the anguish of locking up his protagonists in the narrow stage of a space capsule. The visual and dramatic sensations that the film brings, rarely seen on a screen, leave the viewer as excited as it is exhausted.
