• “The whole film is gorgeous to look at, at any rate, with Jacqueline Abrahams’ production design poised between realistic sets littered with amusing vintage objects and unnaturally spare hospital wards. A dreamy feeling emanates from DP Lorenzo Hagerman’s muted browns and greens and soft focus. All the clues are there that Alverson and his co-screenwriters Colm O’Leary and Dustin Guy Defa are after bigger game than spoofing 1950s America.”

    – Deborah Young : Hollywood Reporter

    “Rick Alverson’s beautiful, often inscrutable new film takes a stand for eccentricity in a complacent suburban nightmare.”
    – Guy Lodge: Variety

    “Alverson leave very little room for serenity, bare compassion and affection gestures whose intensity and nakedness remind us of the great masters of trascendental cinema: Robert Bresson or Carl Dreyer. Fleeting halo lights amidst the heart of tragedy: the most devastating movie this critic has seen in a very long time.”
    – Manu Yañez : Fotogramas

    “A proposal as magnetic as it is immersive and captivating (…) this laberynth is just perfect.”

    “If Faust manifests something, is Bussmann’s acute and assertive way of creating stories, which establishes a beautiful conversation between dialogue and images.”
    —El espectador imaginario

    “The shadowed border between human and non-human perception is one of Fausto’s sustained topics of interrogation.”
    —Peter Goldberg: Slant Magazine

    “Fausto puts a striking and abstract spin on a familiar fable.”
    —Kevin Ritchie: Now Toronto

    “In Bussmann’s film, and the anthropological cinema to which it loosely belongs, the limits of human perception are tied up with the gaps in rigid, supposedly “objective” colonial belief systems.”

    “It is a movie about gay experience, it is not about migration, but about displacement, about forgetfulness, memory and reconstruction, global and deeply human topics. The characters in the movie end up meeting in the middle at some point but in reality, it is a history with no end.”

    —The director for Encuadres

    “Exile, identity and sexuality, a triage of elements that are mixed in the character of Ramin, an iranian migrant who lands in Veracruz harbor, a place of transference/transit/transport for a character that is  not only running away from his demons, but also from the problematic reality of being gay in the middle east; the search for the embrace of an identity that welcoms his true self.”

    —José Emilio Sarmiento: Panorama

    “The topic of marginalization born out of facism and violent contexts, in which, one way of another, the “fireflies” (from Pasolini’s essay) manage to comunicate insided the shadows where they were exiled to.”

    — Matt Micucci: Gay Essential 

  • “A movie about indivial leeway that is also a colective portrait where peculiar charactares gather.”

    “The key to the main reading of Alché’s movie is what we need to live and what we left when we die.”
    —Esteban García de La Mata: Icónica

    “If to [Fellini] the unconscious might resemble a three track circus, or and exhuberant cabarét, María Alché wages subtle narratives to address, in her feature filmfilmdebut film, a personal crisis. The more Martelian rather Fellian , A Family Submerged is dominated by the presence of Mercedes Morán that shows herself to the audience between net curtains before presenting that her eyes enclosed all of the sadness in the world.”
    —Jordi Costa: El País

    “This movie (. . .) talks about those moments where we desperately need a breath of fresh air. The protagonist is looking to surface with in order to open her mouth, her lungs and to decir wheter to keep floating or if we are to breath again in order to reach our acquaintances, and to maybe end up swiming in that love and hate aquarium that we call family.”

    “Alfonso Cuarón’s neorealist drama about a family in early-’70s Mexico City is a luminous vision that insists on floating above its characters.”
    — Owen Gleiberman : Variety.

    “The wonderful and revealing, Cuarón’s opus is familiar even to those who were born in the other side of the border.”
    — Claudia Puig: Remezcla

    “The sumptuous film, based on Cuarón’s own childhood, reverberates not only with innocence but with the awful intuition of its collapse.”
    — Anthony Lane: The NewYorker

    “Roma’ assembles its narrative out of small moments, as the director’s camera pans slowly through various scenes to soak in the distinctive locale, while dispensing tidbits of story details from unlikely places.”

  • “The guatemalan cinematographer, Julio Hernández Cordón, gives another step in his career in describing, through film, the virtues and needs of the actual world’s youth with his movie Atrás hay relámpagos.”
    José Luis García: Cinestel

    “In order to be sorrounded by the rich atmosphere of the movie, for moments fun and relaxed, others painful and decadent, one needs to be pacient and sentitive.”

    “At first glance, it is hard to follow film , but with a little bit of reflexion, one starts to understand how real life events are gathered; the why as to something happens at certain times and why some others happend very specifically. Wheter it be sad or happy, the movie also shows that the past helps us to understand the present, and how to be prepared for the future.”
    — Gustavo Campos: Contexto 


  • “The Wolf House explores the idea of house and family as something perverse and welcoming simultaneausly, a place where you always have to go back, but in which our deepest fears are born and hidden (. . .) What’s terrorific it’s not only the house itself, but rather the way in which the house and its inhabitants become more familiar to the humans that made them and observe them. On route to realism, the characters of The Wolf House turn into even more stranger, darker, and sinister beings. Even more so than ourselves.”

    Gonzalo de Pedro: Otros Cines España

    – Owen Gleiberman: Variety

    “The war takes on a mithological tone to narrate what it is, essentially, a story about latinamerican gangsters (…) the makers assume a sober tone that evades the narco movies’ violent excesses.”
     
    Leonardo García Tsao: La Jornada 

    “The result is potent, articulate,  splattered by extraordinary sequences, and it is build wiht a maginific sense of rythm.”
    Sergio Huibobro: Cine Premier 

    “Superbly crafted (…) it intelligently  explores how longstanding traditions can be gradually upended by drugs, money and outside influences.
     Jordan Mintzer: The Hollywood Reporter
