USA, 2014 (165 minutes). Director: Richard Linklater. Performers: Ellar Coltrane, Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette.
In contemporary cinema there are still filmmakers who travel against the current to embrace the magic of images. We have to thank Richard Linklater for his courage when shooting Boyhood over 12 years, with the same actors, but we still have to thank him more for the leap into the void that is a story that only seeks the recreation of life itself: an exploration of vital time through cinematographic time. Boyhood revolves around a group of unforgettable characters and embraces a dramatic development that talks about their affections, their resignations, their desires, their miseries … in short, about the passage of time. Life made into cinema. Emotion transformed into images. Until reaching an unspeakable final shot, the absolute essence of the intentions of a film outside the norm.

USA, 2000 (166 minutes). Director: Martin Scorsese. Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, Cameron Díaz.
One of the last major works by Martin Scorsese, creating a grandiose fresco set in New York in the second half of the 19th century. Although it is clearly perceived that part of the original footage was pruned by the production company, the savage struggle between the gangs that populate the city allows the filmmaker to delve into a magnificent social and political portrait. The function is rounded off by an unforgettable work by an immense Daniel Day-Lewis.

‘Salvador (Puig Antich)’
Spain-United Kingdom, 2005 (134 minutes). Director: Manuel Huerga. Performers: Daniel Brühl, Tristán Ulloa, Leonardo Sbaraglia.
Salvador (Puig Antich) it is a fierce plea against the death penalty, but also an angry portrait of Spain in the years before Franco’s death; a sordid and convulsed Spain, shaken by the death throes of a dictatorship that still had power over the lives of others. Salvador Puig Antich, one of the last executed by the regime, was a member of the anarchist group Iberian Liberation Movement, and his story could be that of so many others. An emotional and ardent film, which grows to raise painful emotions, supported by a memorable group of actors.

My fair lady it is a joyous show in which all its elements are magically assembled.

USA, 1982 (112 minutes). Director: Ridley Scott. Performers: Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young.
Blade Runner remains an icon of modern cinema. In his day, the now-wandering Ridley Scott broke new ground in science fiction by combining codes from film noir, western, and thriller. Today, his reflection on life and death, the meaning of existence and the fleetingness of feelings is still alive. All this within an overwhelming visual design that recreates a sordid and inhuman Los Angeles, ravaged by rain and publicity, through which Harrison Ford passes as heir to the detectives of the black genre.
