The deer hunter. USA, 1978 (175 minutes). Directed by Michael Cimino. Cast: Robert de Niro, Christopher Walken, Meryl Streep, John Savage, John Cazale.
Arriving in Vietnam, Robert de Niro will understand that his life depends on a single bullet, just like that of the deer he hunts, in which he insists to his friends that the pieces of a single bullet must be collected . And it is that everything smells ephemeral in this sombre film that captures in its painful images a cast of characters confronting the death of dreams; They are friends who embrace their roots, their traditions, who ritualize their actions to find their identity and hold on to themselves while feeling that war will destroy their lives. It all hits in this masterpiece, which travels through idyllic terrain for the first hour of footage, only to later explode in a brutal wave of rage and violence.

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. United Kingdom, 2016 (130 minutes). Director: David Yates. Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Colin Farrell, Alison Sudol.
At the same time, the prequel and spin-off of the adventures of Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is born from the imagination of JK Rowling, who served a wonderful screenplay to David Yates, director of the last four films of the youthful Magicians. The fabulous adventure doesn’t skimp on forays into the darkest of realism, realizing the universes envisioned by Rowling thanks to some amazing special effects that don’t overshadow the dramatic development of the story.

‘Mulholland Falls, The Hat Brigade’
Mulholland Falls. USA, 1995 (107 minutes). Director: Lee Tamahori. Cast: Nick Nolte, Melanie Griffith, Chazz Palminteri, Jennifer Connelly, Chris Penn.
A good film from the director of Guerreros de Antaño, which tells a harsh story of corruption and disappointment in America in the 1950s. The staging, deliberately retro, enlivens a function that makes formal sobriety its best virtue. The cast of actors is another reason to enjoy.

“The Engaged Princess”
The Prince’s Bride. USA, 1987 (85 minutes). Directed by Rob Reiner. Cast: Mandy Patinkin, Robin Wright, Cary Elwes.
However, in the eighties, a decade of film nonsense, there are illustrious references like this fable full of adventurous sense, in which a world inhabited by all sorts of magical beings vibrates and by a swordsman who plots revenge together with a memorable cry of war.

Dunkirk. United Kingdom, 2017 (107 minutes). Director: Christopher Nolan. Cast: Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh.
An amazing style bet by Christopher Nolan: he wants to get from visual bombast to expressive conciseness. A monumental work depicting the drama of the Allied soldiers trapped on the beach at Dunkirk, surrounded by the Germans, refining the story until it becomes universal history.

Spain, 1998 (101 minutes). Directed by Salvador García Ruiz. Cast: Gustavo Salmerón, Tristán Ulloa, Adrià Collado, Laia Marull, María Esteve, Lola Dueñas.
Surprising debut by Salvador García Ruiz, a great film, dramatically flawless, born from a staging that seems almost invisible, but has a firm grip on the plot. Mensaka portrays a group of young people who show in every gesture the turmoil, rebellion and fear of growing up. The best thing about this film comes from its credibility, from the filmmaker’s passion for the story, and from the astonishing naturalness of a cast of actors that included then-newcomers Tristán Ulloa and Laia Marull. I wish Spanish cinema would approach the daily reality of its surroundings more often, and I wish it would always do so with the honesty of Mensaka, a true example of true cinema.

Premiere of the Turkish series “Original Sin”
A new Turkish series, Original Sin, arrives on Antena 3. The first episode is offered tonight before the release of a new chapter of Family Secrets to move to the chain’s afternoons tomorrow in an appointment from Monday to Friday. It is a production that focuses its plot on two sisters, Zeynep and Yildiz, who only have each other and work hard to get out of a poverty that does not even allow them to pay debts. However, their personalities are opposites. The first is hardworking and responsible, while the second is rather crazy and frivolous.

United States, (130 minutes). Director: Jon Watts. Starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Robert Downey Jr.
The return of Spider-Man, with his secret identity revealed, delves into the character’s conflicts without distorting his voice, and with a tone as uninhibited as it is respectful of Marvel guns, there’s just an excessive presence of the gags.

“AI Artificial Intelligence”
United States, 2001 (146 minutes). Directed by Steven Spielberg. Cast: Haley Joel Osment, Jude Law, Frances O’Connor.
Stanley Kubrick has matured the artificial intelligence project for years. In the story beats the idea of the inevitable loneliness of the individual, the basis of many of the director’s masterpieces. Over time, however, the filming would be in Spielberg’s hands. Under his gaze, the story of a robot boy who can feel love and pain is transformed into a double feature film: in the first hour he reconstructs Kubrick’s visual style with amazing skill. The rest of the footage becomes a sordid tale that peers into the abyss of tragedy, a metaphor for a society as orphaned as the protagonist child.
