I write to tell stories

The Movie – Paisà – by Roberto Rossellini.


The beauty of the narration of real life, in its bare simplicity

The Movie – Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari (Il gabinetto del Dottor Galigari) – Robert Wiene.


A narration suspended between reality and mental delirium, with scenographies of distorted and distressing landscapes (in my opinion the beauty of this film lies precisely in the creativity of the shapes of the scenographies).
The only aspect that caused me a little boredom concerns the captions, which are too long.
Overall it is a film that catches the viewer, I am not surprised that it was successful at the time.
A story, an ancient thriller still pleasant to watch after a century after its creation.

The Movie – Grandma’s Reading Glass (1920) – by George Albert Smith.


I use a comparison with literature to describe this mini film: it is a sonnet that praises the tenderness with which childhood observes the world that amazes it at every glance.

The Movie – Into the Grizzly Maze – by David Hackl.


The construction of the narrative is not perfect, the story is dragged to the extreme in a too articulated pursuit: on the whole I did not really like this film.

The Movie – Gothika – by Mathieu Kassovitz.


Masterful thriller story: few stories manage to keep you glued to the spectator’s chair with suspended breath.
This is one of those films and the acting of the characters is fabulous.

The Movie – Jumanji: The Next Level – by Jake Kasdan.


The beauty of fantasy.

The Movie – Star Wars: Episodio IX – The Rise of Skywalker – by J.J. Abrams.


I love this saga: it is a source of happiness, of life and keeps hope alive in everything.

The Movie – The battleship Potëmkin (Bronenose? Potëmkin) – by Sergei M. Eisenstein.


Emotionally strong, to the point that the absence of audio is not a lack, but a natural part of the narration.

Video

The Movie – The Great Train Robbery – by Edwin S. Porter.


Nice short film.

Video

The Movie – A Rainy Day in New York – by Woody Allen.


A work of art of human emotion, elegant, romantic and ingenious, like every Woody Allen film.
