Read More | Posted Aug 6, 2019
97% Booksmart (2019) A conventional story that attempts to distinguish itself from similar products through a banal accumulation of excesses, provocations, artifice and extravagances. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT

Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2019
86% The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) The problem is that Desiree Akhavan and the screenwriter Cecilia Frugiuele... do not seem too interested in investigating the complex relationship between sexuality and identity. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2019
No Score Yet Selfie (2019) One has to recognize that Selfie is fine as it is although. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT

89% Arctic (2019) A good example of the famous [phrase] "less is more"... with a good performance from Mads Mikkelsen. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT
Read More | Posted May 31, 2019
56% Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) The most devoted of the genre will accuse Joe Berlinger of achieving something unheard of: creating a film about a serial killer that is not scary. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT
Read More | Posted May 8, 2019
75% Guava Island (2019) It is quite paradoxical that something that wants to be anti-capitalist has "product placement" everywhere. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 22, 2019
87% Tumbbad (2018) The development is so basic at a conceptual level that one quickly loses interest. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT

Read More | Posted Feb 25, 2019
90% Capernaum (Capharnaüm) (2018) Capernaum seems to punish the parents' behavior more than the miserable situation in which they are immersed. The latter is a defect to be taken into account, but it does not tarnish what the film achieves emotionally. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT

79% Fyre Fraud (2019) In general, it's a scattered documentary whose title simply seeks to parasitize Netflix. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2019
92% Fyre (2019) Its greatest merit is that it not only reports on the disaster, but also talks about the power of appearances and social networks and how they can build an image that in many cases has little to do with reality. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2019
93% The Favourite (2018) There are certain suggestive symbolisms, but the duration is not directly proportional to the level of depth that it reaches. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2019
No Score Yet 24 Weeks (2016) The final message and the method of transmitting it confirms that the objective of this proposal is to defend an idea; What is left over is the movie's disguise. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 15, 2019
80% Volcano (2018) The metaphors it uses to develop its theme are Volcano's highlights, supported by Vadim Ilkov's wonderful photography. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2019
58% Under the Silver Lake (2019) A tasteless Pynchon smoothie for the "postmodern" audience. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT

84% Dogman (2019) Dogman's main problem is that it requires a leap of faith on the part of the viewer. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 12, 2018
96% BlacKkKlansman (2018) More than a film it resembles an audiovisual assertion and... does not bring anything new to the subject, beyond emphasizing the prejudices and narrow-mindedness of certain individuals, something that everyone already knows. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2018
91% Mandy (2018) The audiovisual section is interesting and Nicolas Cage is acceptable, but this is not enough to compensate for the amount of excesses, whims and inconsistencies that the story presents. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT

88% Scary Mother (2017) Although it's [director] Ana Urushadze's debut film, it seems more like the work of a veteran director who controls the medium perfectly. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
98% Too Late to Die Young (Tarde para morir joven) (2019) Too Late to Die Young is sustained to a large extent thanks to the photography of Inti Briones, the spontaneity of the dialogues and the naturalness of the performances. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
95% Ray & Liz (2019) This narrative strategy diminishes the cohesion of the whole, but it does not prevent the portrait from being effective. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
No Score Yet Zavtra (2017) [Zavtra] rambles, rambles and rambles with repetitive images of snowy streets and the protagonist looking for work and using public transport. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2018
75% Mom and Dad (2018) Although Mom and Dad has a very attractive premise and fabulous audiovisual flashes, in the end it ends up wasting the opportunity to achieve something much more powerful and meaningful. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 4, 2018
89% Lemonade (2018) Perhaps the most ingenious thing about Lemonade is the bittersweetness that defines it - and the relationship that [director Ioana] Uricaru establishes with the title. [Full review in Spanish] - Culturamas EDIT
