1-7 June

Clerks(1994)-7.5/10->Clerks's smart and humorous script helps the movie overlook the seemingly bland premise.

Clerks II(2006)-5/10->Clerks II is not as original as the first one and even though it uses the same form of raunchy humor and it hits some good notes,but it never captures the freshness and smartness of the first one.

Loving Without Reason(2012)-6.5/10->The story is pretty basic and so are the characters,but LaFosse makes it emotional without forcing it and the acting is fantastic,especially the one from Dequenne.

Tony Manero(2008)-7/10->Tony Manero is a dark and odd look at Pinochet's regime and the way films influence people.Also,it features a lot of dark humor,which mostly works.

Prospero's Books(1999)-4/10->Prospero's Books is too chaotic and too derivative from it's source material to work,the photography being the best thing,which is done stunningly.

Hemingway & Gellhorn(2012)-1/10->Hemingway & Gellhorn has a bad script,wooden acting and technically,it's horribly made.Also,it lasts two hours and a half.Unbelievably excruciating.

Mother And Son(1997)-8/10->Mother And Son is a heartbreaking poem about the strange relationship between a mother and her son.

Moloch(1999)-6.5/10->Moloch is well written and acted,but it has moments of incoherence and it never thoroughly explores the connection between the two main characters. There is an exploration,but it is very basically done,it disappoints.

Taurus(2001)-6/10->Brilliantly photographed,Taurus is a slow,but intriguing portrayal of Lenin.Amiably acted.
