Case 39

This movie is made only for fast consumption... an unpretentious film. The tension moments are ok and some scares are pretty good. It's quite strange to see Renée Zellweger in this kind of character and she made it very well, however she must change his botox-pusher for a better one... She looks a pretty weird face sometimes during the film. So it's fun but not a masterpiece.

My score: 6 (out of 10)

Interesting and odd movie. Transgressor, suggestive, dirty, dark, visually delirious sometimes... Very typical of Lars Von Trier. It's a kind of psychedelic drama that enters in the deep world of a depression and the guilt. The film starts with an amazing, shocking and super-slow sequence in B&W with explicit sex (present in all the movie) and baroque music by Händel, whose crucial event beats time the drama during all the film. Some parts are really hard and some others are quite pretentious, but I liked the movie, although it's not an easy film.

My score: 8 (out of 10)

Public Enemies

This isn't a master piece but it's a good movie. The setting of the America during the years of post-depression is brilliant. Michael Mann took care of it very well. The camera work is very good, although sometimes he experimented with a kind of travelling more typical of the Dogma cinema, and this is quite estrange in a gangster movie of the thirties, but the result is great. The rivalry between Dillinger and the agent Melvin Purpis is not very balanced... Dillinger outshines Melvin. And by the way, the Marion Cotillard performance is surprisingly good. Recommendable film.

My score: 7 (out of 10)
