Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island. USA, 2017 (118 minutes). Director: Jordan Vogt-Roberts. Performers: Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson.

The spirit of the old adventure genre beats in the images of this painstaking film that travels back to the home of the legendary King Kong. From the expressive dryness of its staging comes a story as imaginative as it is exciting. It is not advisable to despise, in cinematic times of artifice and loud voices, a film that tries to combine care in its staging with the creation of a great show.

‘No country for old men’

No Country for Old Man. USA, 2007 (122 minutes). Directors: Joel and Ethan Coen. Performers: Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Woody Harrelson, Kelly MacDonald.

The Coen brothers continue in their endeavor to investigate the edges of American society. In this case, his encounter with a Corman McCarthy novel results in a film that is as hurtful as it is laconic, as fatalistic as it is refined. The story crosses the steps of an old and tortured sheriff, a heartless hit man and a guy who appropriates a sum of money from drug trafficking. Dry, cutting, masterful, No Country for Old Men plunges into the western frontiers and is supported by an impeccable cast in which a memorable Javier Bardem explodes.

‘Red phone? We flew to Moscow’

Dr. Strangelove, or how I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. USA, 1963 (92 minutes). Director: Stanley Kubrick. Performers: Peter Sellers, George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden.

The cold war and the panic of atomic danger erupt in monumental satire thanks to the incisive gaze of teacher Stanley Kubrick. Farce and drama alternate to immerse themselves in the delirious odyssey of a paranoid American general who launches a nuclear offensive on the USSR, while the viewer, who smiles and shudders in equal parts, is shaken by the devastating ups and downs of the shocking script written by Terry Southern and Kubrick himself, culminating in a memorable ending: in the midst of the madness, the director’s pessimism reigns supreme. An absolute masterpiece, as acidic as it is harrowing.
