‘The Age of Innocence’
The age of innocence. United States, 1993 (135 minutes). Director: Martin Scorsese. Performers: Daniel Day-Lewis, Michelle Pfeiffer, Winona Ryder.
The prolific Martin Scorsese signs this interesting adaptation of Edith Warton’s novel, which takes a look at the high hierarchies of New York society in 1870, a world that moves between gossip and betrayal. Good work of its luxurious cast and magnificent setting for a drama that, despite some concessions to the gallery, is shown well above the usual average.

United States, 2010 (105 minutes). Directors: Robert Rodríguez and Ethan Maniquis. Int .: Danny Trejo, Robert de Niro, Jessica Alba.
Robert Rodríguez, director who has such explosive titles to his credit as Open until dawn or Desperado, does what he knows best in Machete: shooting action movies with the best ingredients of the genre, that is, abundant doses of violence, blood and various excesses. Now he gives prominence to the actor of Mexican descent Danny Trejo (well wrapped by a cast full of familiar faces), giving life to a federal agent with deadly abilities who will fight with every living bug that comes out to meet him.

‘Now or never’
The bucket list. United States, 2007 (97 minutes). Director: Rob Reiner. Performers: Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman, Sean Hayes.
Although his script is not a prodigy of imagination and Rob Reiner, its director, does not recover the touch of his best works (Some good men), the mere presence of a leading couple like the one formed by Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman puts him a point of distinction to this attractive dramatic comedy. The film tells the adventure of two terminally ill patients who decide to make their dreams come true. Along the way they will share their pain, their fears and their will to live.

Leonard Cohen, words of love
A talented Canadian writer named Leonard lands on the Greek island of Hydra with his guitar and typewriter. It’s Leonard Cohen. This documentary, titled Marianne and Leonard: Words of Love, explores Leonard Cohen’s emotional relationship with Marianne Ihlen, a Norwegian woman who inspired some of the composer’s best work and poet. Songs like So Long, Marianne and Bird on the Wire owe their existence to this intense romance that began on the paradisiacal island of Hydra in the early 1960s. An enigmatic bond full of admiration, unforeseen events and the odd painful anecdote. This work, directed by Nick Broomfield (Who Killed Kurt Cobain? And The Battle of Hadith) explores Cohen’s early years as a composer through testimonials and archive footage of the protagonist lovers.

But the film is not alone here, it goes beyond that background of a war story to portray the personal experiences of a group of men in extreme situations. An excellent script, perfectly supported by credible interpretive work, for a film that won, among other awards, the Golden Bear at the Berlin Festival.

Spain, 1975 (102 minutes). Director: Carlos Saura. Interpreters: Geraldine Chaplin, Ana Torrent, Germán Cobos.
One of the great jewels of Spanish cinema. Carlos Saura, who was signing a solo script for the first time, assembles in this Cría cuervos a risky and multi-award-winning custom drama about memories, experiences, nostalgia and wounds of the past. But, without a doubt, one of the great successes of this work is the presence of a very young Ana Torrent who eats the screen in each shot. Very good.

The people vs Larry Flynt. United States, 1996 (123 minutes). Director: Milos Forman. Performers: Woody Harrelson, Courtney Love, Edward Norton, James Cromwell.

Despite the Oscar nominations won by Forman and Woody Harrelson, it is not one of the best works of the Czech director.
