DARK HORSE

Directed by Todd Solondz. A film with Justin Bartha, Selma Blair, Zachary Booth, Mia Farrow, Jordan Gelber, Aasif Mandvi. Drama genre - USA, 2011, duration 84 minutes.

CHINIC AND SOBER HYPERREALIST COMEDY WITH A BURNING SADNESS.

 

Abe is a big boy in his thirties, who collects action figures from comics and works in his father's office, where the secretary pampers him and relieves him of any responsibility, just like his mother does at home. On the occasion of a wedding, Abe by chance meets Miranda, a beautiful girl still under the parental roof, who after only a couple of meetings sensationally agrees to marry him. But this is a Todd Solondz movie and young people aren't cute and they don't end up happy and content like in Hollywood.

Yet Dark Horse is also a comedy, for the many laughs it tears, but of course a comedy of biting sadness, because Solondz's vision of the world is as complex as few and it is in this depth that his hyperrealism lies, much more than in aesthetics.

A SEA OF TROUBLE

Adolpho wants to become a film director but can barely survive and pay the rent for the apartment. He decides to do an ad to find someone willing to buy his voluminous script of about 500 pages. Find a crazy person who seems interested. The troubles have just begun.

THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO

Directed by Joe Talbot. A film with Jimmie Fails, Jonathan Majors, Danny Glover, Mike Epps, Tichina Arnold, Rob Morgan. Drama genre - USA, 2019, duration 121 minutes.

 

ELEGY, PARTLY AUTOBIOGRAPHIC, OF A CITY THAT IS NO LONGER. A STRUGGING WORK THAT MAKES REFLECT.

 

Jimmie and Mont are two true friends, united in their being eccentric compared to other African Americans in the same neighborhood of San Francisco.

Very little remains of the San Francisco of the past, only stardust, residue of when we hoped for a better world. In the glimmers of a proudly black story, in fact, some excerpts of that ancient glory peep out, from the "Summer of Love" 1967: "Somebody to Love" by Jefferson Airplane - revived in the form of trivial techno remix - John Phillips or Janis Joplin, mentioned in the chatter of two snobbish and arrogant girls, so basically Frisco is not that much.

MADELINE'S MADELINE

Directed by Josephine Decker. A film with Helena Howard, Jamal Batts, Blake Baumgartner, Felipe Bonilla, Julee Cerda. Drama genre - USA, 2018, duration 94 minutes.

 

IMMERSIVE AND ENERGETIC CINEMA, WHERE THE TRAINING STORY TAKES THE POWERFUL AND ORIGINAL FORM OF THE PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER.

 

Madeline's Madeline is a film conceived in the image and likeness of its protagonist, without a clear boundary between objectivity and subjectivity of vision, between theater and cinema, staging of the performance and staging tout court. Immersive cinema, therefore, experimental, very vital, made of the material of which dreams are made, as well as of their style. But also psychological thriller, declined in an arthouse key, which dialogues with the precedents of the American director, surpassing them.

HALF NELSON

Directed by Ryan Fleck. A film with Ryan Gosling, Anthony Mackie, Shareeka Epps, Monique Gabriela Curnen, Karen Chilton. Drama genre - USA, 2006, duration 107 minutes.

 

IN FRIENDSHIP THE STRENGTH OF A SMALL INDEPENDENT FILM, FILMED AS A DOCUMENTARY AND WITH TWO EXTRAORDINARY ACTORS.

 

This little indie film tends to ask questions rather than give answers. Just like in the lessons of the leading teacher, who encourages his students not to accept dogmas passively, but to put their intelligence and their critical spirit into play. Lessons in history and above all in life, of those that would produce miracles in social contexts condemned to marginalization.
