127 Hours. USA, 2010 (95 minutes). Director: Danny Boyle. Performers: James Franco, Kate Mara, Treat Williams.
After the absurdity of Slumdog millionaire, Briton Danny Boyle regains strength thanks to a simple story, but also terrible, that recreates the tragedy of a mountaineer who is trapped in an inhospitable bend between the rocks of a mountain with a huge stone trapping him arm. In an intelligent way, Boyle avoids the temptation to squeeze the unique situation and decorates his narrative with a prologue and the different hallucinations of his immobilized character. All this helps to maintain the narrative intensity. The filmmaker's commitment to formal austerity creates the most anguished sequences.

An intense family drama inspired by the novel by Henry James, which firmly addresses how a six-year-old girl lives the bitter divorce of her parents, a rock star and an art dealer.

Dial M for Murder. USA, 1954 (100 minutes). Director: Alfred Hitchcock. Performers: Grace Kelly, Ray Milland, Robert Cummings, John Williams.
Perfect Crime it is one of the most obvious examples of Hitchcock's visual mastery. Each framing and each movement of the camera are charged with meaning in a work that arranges the decoration and the objects as the dramatic engines of its murky intrigue. The master accentuates the diabolical mechanics of the narrative thanks to a camera that describes and narrates at the same time, and creates an almost unbearable tension even in the moments in which the action seems to take a breath to start off harder.
