'Perfect robbery'

The Killing.EE UU, 1956 (83 minutos). Director: Stanley Kubrick. Intérpretes: Sterling Hayden, Coleen Gray, Marie Windsor, Elisha Cook.

At the age of 28, Stanley Kubrick was facing his third film and dared to review the codes of film noir with the most transgressive gaze. Perfect robbery arises from a devilish script by Kubrick himself, which adapts a novel by Lionel White; but the script is enhanced by the work of the gigantic Jim Thompson, concerned with writing dry and devastating dialogue. A runaway plot drags the viewer to a racetrack robbery, narrated from the point of view of each of its participants, in an explosion of jumps in time and space. Kubrick deconstructs the narration to create a turbulent puzzle that becomes a metaphor for the feelings of classless characters whose eyes live with bitterness and despair.

'The painted veil'

USA, 2006 (125 minutes). Director: John Curran. Performers: Edward Norton, Naomi Watts, Liev Schreiber.

A new visit to the popular novel by William Somerset Maugham, from the hand of Edward Norton. The actor, who also works as a producer, which attests to his passion for the story, dragged Naomi Watts to the project, who stands as the absolute protagonist of a hard-working love story, as painful as it is oppressive. The story addresses the marital crisis experienced by a couple gripped by the suffocating British colonial environment in Shanghai in the 1920s.

'Embroideres street crime'

Spain, 1946 (88 minutes). Director: Edgar Neville. Cast: Mary Delgado, Manuel Luna, Julia Lajos, Rafael Calvo.

One day, Spanish cinema will pay Edgar Neville the tribute he deserves. Neville was not only an author of new paths with risky and unique films like Nothing or The tower of the seven hunchbacks, but also knew how to capture the essence of the Spain of his time with works like this one, a story that travels between the comedy of customs and the police intrigue, and that portrays a traditional Madrid, almost typical of Arniches, in which a black network of passions moves, wrapped in an impeccable narrative structure.

17.25 / TCM

'The letter'

The Letter. EE UU, 1940 (95 minutos). Director: William Wyler. Intérpretes: Bette Davis, Herbert Marshall, James Stephenson.

The legendary Bette Davis is the figure on which this magnificent story revolves, in which William Wyler created an old-fashioned melodrama, based on a novel by Somerseth Maugham and supported by a superb screenplay by Howard Koch. Full of passions, and adorned by a staging as strong as it is elegant, the film begins with an overwhelming sequence, in which Bette Davis murders the man she loves. A marvel.

0.25 / Sundance

'Cassandra's Dream'

Cassandra Dream's. USA, 2007 (104 minutes). Director: Woody Allen. Cast: Ewan McGregor, Colin Farrell, Tom Wilkinson.

Cassandra's dream, third work of the so-called, “English trilogy” by Woody Allen, looks again at the careerism and crisis of conscience. Not with an air of Hitchcockian intrigue, as in Match Point, and far from the comedic rhythm of Scoop. The ominous notes of Philip Glass's melodies will punctuate a narrative that will move along the path of tragedy, delve into torment and the anguish of the sinner and will lambast social schemes sustained by appearances and the desire for economic advancement. A splendid drama, black and sordid, that seizes the petty-bourgeois desires of two brothers to turn them into nightmares.
