About Smith. USA, 2002 (120 minutes). Directed by Alexander Payne. Cast: Jack Nicholson, Kathy Bates, Hope Davis, Dermot Mulroney.

Jack Nicholson takes hold of a bitter and somber story, somewhat unusual in American commercial cinema, about a subject who leads a tedious life as an insurance salesman and, after retiring and being a widow, travels to his daughter’s wedding, a journey on which he will explode, to get rid of the ghosts of frustration. As for Schmidt, he doesn’t risk his commitment to caustic satire and bittersweetness to the end, but it’s a more than solid film, with a deep existential breath, reinforced by a self-contained Nicholson who sees the pain of suffering in his eyes carries.

The Philadelphia Story. USA, 1940 (112 minutes). Directed by George Cukor. Cast: Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, James Stewart.

George Cukor once again delivers flawless comedy. And that with simple means: a most primitive heiress who wants to get married, an ex-husband who wants to prevent that, and a journalist who is right in the middle. Philadelphia Stories was born from the personal efforts of Katharine Hepburn, owner of the rights to the play that inspired her: the actress provided the names of the screenwriter, the director and her two co-stars. Cukor, with transparency as the supreme stylistic device, subtly poisoned sharp arrows against the press, the newly rich and the farce of social appearance.

The rest of the footage escalates into the outrageous: Kubrick will descend into the future of humanity, into the abysses of the universe, accompanied by a monolith where divinity strikes, a space ballet, a computer more human than humans, and a journey into the world stars beyond infinity.
