  • Arthur Penn, wow what a movie very crazy context. a lot of  things going on like: sex drama romance crime let’s start with sex, isn’t funny the scene where Bonnie Parker starts touching the gun that Clyde takes out to rob. i mention this scene because we have her gazing down with an intense look. then approaches her hands […]

  • Directed by Kenneth Anger (1965) i have many questions for this film, first of all was Kenneth gay? was he trying to make a commercial? well i think he was not gay, but maybe wanted to cause conmotion for anybody in the audience. the whole pinkish colors and baby blue was very strong and it […]

    Directed by Stan Brakhage, is a film where we see the creativity aspect grow. i say this because is amazing how some people come themselves with challenging ideas of putting moths paste then in the filmstrip. that should have been a lot of labor work. i wonder how long it take him to get this […]

  • Cornell and Jodan a found footage. a very clever film. especially the part where the footage is cut in half, shows us that this people were thinking in many possible ways to show what you can do with film. also why they showed the kangaroo fight? from my understanding was to show a funny fight […]

  • No we have Maya Deren, MESHES OF THE AFTERNOON  (1943) I havent been able to watch the whole movie, but from one famous scene that every professor talks about; it seems to be a movie of a lot of crazy ideologies. this movie (104min) seems to be one huge mystery from what i saw if we were […]

  • I  am impress how Jonas Mekas, stars giving importance to the art of film by creating Anthology Film Archives. if we wouldnt have this critics and filmmakers we wouldnt be studying this exeptional art. the experimental film post WWII, make a little bit life easier by using hand held cameras 16mm and poratable sound equipment.

  • As we all know this are films that concentrate on movement and dream imagery. this language is use to visualize the mysteries of the mind and makes us travel on places that we don’t even know, maybe i am repeating myself with previous post about films taking us to unknown places, that the art of […]

    This time  i want to concentrate in the introductions that Hitchcock makes everytime that he shows his work. with mystery and unexpected situations we are always curious and intereste  on his work because it takes us to the unexpected. the way he markets himself makes himself known, recognized and even remembered so he knew how […]

    Ousmane Sembene, makes me proud of how a minority gets to be known for this film, that shows many of the problems of the world. Sembene is an eye opener of the reality of the colonialism, post-colonial identity. identity is a great part that plays in the scene that professor Herzog shows us. i love […]

    In my short life, I have notice that im always interest in movies that have that magic touch of fantasy and mystery , those that drive you to places that you never think of, those places where the imposible is possible and its normal such as: Inception Avatar The Maltese Falcon Pan’s Labyrinth The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Don’t Die […]

  • it is true that Hitchcock leaves clueless, and that’s why he taught us to love horror in an unexpected way. Even when the people wasn’t use to this theme, the introduction caused a lot of curiosity. i like the way he markets himself. isn’t that very clever? and all this steps that he makes gives […]
