Husbands. USA, 1970 (138 minutes). Director: John Cassavetes. Performers: Ben Gazzara, John Cassavetes, Peter Falk, Jenny Runacre, Noelle Kao.
Many directors today proclaim that they make independent films, although they film under the protection of large companies and offer products as academic as a work by James Ivory. John Cassavetes did independent film almost two decades; he was a thematic renovator and an instigator of a risky and modern cinematographic language. In Husbands he reiterates his intention to harass the faces of his characters to strip his emotions by means of electric close-ups, waves his camera with as much precision as vividness and pursues subjects confronted with the longings and miseries of their lives as a result of the death of a common friend

Spain-England in the League of Nations
La Roja faces its third match of the League of Nations, the new UEFA competition. The players of Luis Enrique are measured with England in the Benito Villamarín stadium in a match in which a victory would serve to qualify mathematically for the final four of the competition. A draw would also be an optimal result, since Croatia would have to beat Spain by seven goals in their future match.

The desolation of Smaug
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. USA, 2013 (160 minutes). Director: Peter Jackson. Intérpetes: Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen.
Criticism destroyed this second installment of the adaptation of The Hobbit, of Tolkien, even more than the first, inciting in a certain sin: his obsession with gigantism. However, he did not know how Peter Jackson showed that he is one of the few directors capable of creating poetic flashes in a movie with the soul of blockbuster His staging, which gives full meaning to his images, meticulous and detailed, achieves a film as meaning as epic that unites intimacy and adventure.
