Midsommar

Dani and Christian form a couple of young Americans who are not going through their best moments. To overcome this critical moment, they travel with friends to a remote Swedish village, where a summer festival known as the Midsommar has been held for 90 years. But what were going to be an idyllic holiday in a place where the sun does not set, becomes a dark nightmare when the inhabitants of that region invite them to participate in their disturbing festive activities. Starring Florence Pough (the unforgettable Katherine of the recent Lady Macbeth, now immersed in the filming of Black Widow), and Jack Reynor (Detroit, Sing Street), who are accompanied by a cast formed by Will Poulter, William Jackson Harper or Ellora Torchia, among others, Midsommar is the second feature of the director and screenwriter Ari Aster, after last year surprised with the elegant and terrifying Hereditary (2018). Based on the Midsommar holiday, which is held every year in Sweden to celebrate the arrival of summer – it would be something like our St. John’s Night -, the Aster movie once again dives on the most perverse side of human nature , with superstition and religion again in the first place, and with the added difficulty of displaying all this darkness in broad daylight (in the wave of pioneering films like Who can kill a child? and Cannibal Holocaust, although as references are also cited Wicker Man or The Forest). Shot in US locations. UU...

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

It’s 1969 in Los Angeles, the last years of classic Hollywood movies, and Rick Dalton, an actor who has fallen into oblivion and drinking, has to accept a villain role in a television series of cowboys. Each day he approaches the set and picks up his best friend, Cliff Booth, a war veteran who works as his double in the action sequences.

The very personal director Quentin Tarantino (Pulp fiction) has repeatedly indicated his intention to shoot only ten films and then retire. If these words are finally fulfilled, and we consider the two volumes of Kill Bill as the same project, we are faced with the ninth and penultimate film by the director of Knoxville, Tennessee. Once upon a time in … Hollywood is presented as a film testament, as it combines many of the elements of pop culture present in the previous works of Tarantino. But it is also one of his most personal works. Leonardo DiCaprio (The Reborn) and Brad Pritt (Damn Bastards) are the protagonist duo of this tribute to the buddy movies or movie of classic friends and, at the same time, snapshot of a whole era and a way of doing cinema and television. The squad of actors is one of the most luxurious in Tarantino’s filmography, especially Margot Robbie (Yo, Tonya) as Sharon Tate. They are accompanied by other interpreters with more or less brief appearances such as Kurt Russell (The Hateful Eight), Emile Hirsch (The Autopsy of Jane Doe), Bruce Dern (Remember Me), Timothy Olyphant (The Jungle 4...
