‘The Town. City of Thieves’

USA, 2010 (125 minutes). Director: Ben Affleck. Performers: Ben Affleck, Rebecca Hall, Chris Cooper.

Before his consecration as director with Argo, Ben Affleck had already delivered intense and remarkable films like this thriller, who accepts the codes of the black genre to turn on a group of robbers who survive in the Charlestown neighborhood. Affleck succeeds in displaying a narrative pulse that brings him closer to the classics, as in the robbery sequence that opens the film. It is true that the script abuses conventions, but the force of the filmmaker’s images makes the story throb.

‘The prophecy’

The Omen. USA, 1976 (106 minutes). Director: Richard Donner. Performers: Gregory Peck, Lee Remick, Harvey Stephens.

To find some of the references of the terrifying genre, it is convenient to look back to the seventies. Even more so in this new millennium that perpetrates nonsense such as the insane remake of The prophecy filmed in 2006. The original film still stands, with more than 40 years of life, as an undisputed classic. A diplomat receives the news that his wife has given birth to a stillborn child and agrees to replace him with another baby without her knowing the truth. From this disturbing beginning, the story maintains a hypnotic sobriety and displays a compendium of visual resources that provoke more fear than all the viscera that later devastated the genre.

Gone Girl. USA, 2014 (145 minutes). Director: David Fincher. Performers: Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris.

A superb David Fincher intrigue that starts from a topical plot: a woman disappears and suspicions fall on her husband. However, Lost it is magnified thanks to its suffocating staging, abundant in gloomy, which extracts visual density from each shot and plays with the frames to increase the oppressiveness of its images.

22.30 / Neox

‘Non Stop’

USA, 2014 (106 minutes). Director: Jaume Collet-Serra. Performers: Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore, Michelle Dockery.

Don’t Stop, fourth film by Jaume Collet-Serra, born with the soul of blockbuster, but it soon turns out to be an efficient exercise in suspense. The director locks the viewer in a plane for much of the footage, plays with the frames and depth of field, relies on the powerful presence of Liam Neeson and achieves a show that is as sober as it is intense.

‘Spotlight’

USA, 2015 (130 minutes). Director: Tom McCarthy. Performers: Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams.

True to the spirit of the best American journalistic cinema, Spotlight offers a dense and absorbing plot about the investigation carried out by the journalists of the Boston Globe around the priestly pedophilia in the city and the consequent cover-up by its hierarchy. Spotlight It is a committed film, with an attentive gaze and firm calligraphy, with an angular staging, which, far from fuss and shouting, captures a fragment of life to universalize its intentions and praise the journalistic profession.

23.30 / COSMO

‘Cinderella Man’

USA, 2005 (144 minutes.). Director: Ron Howard. Performers: Russell Crowe, Renée Zellweger, Paul Giamatti.

The hard life of Jim Braddock, the legendary boxer of the 1930s, comes to the cinema covered by an exemplary script and by the acting power of Russell Crowe. Although Ron Howard always drops the occasional cloying in his movies, Cinderella Man maintains in his images a remarkable narrative power.
