Rope. USA, 1948 (77 minutes). Director: Alfred Hitchcock. Performers: James Stewart, John Dahl, Farley Granger.
In the cinema of the new millennium – the Iñárritu of Birdman-, The technical boast that Hitchcock tackled in La soga, his first film in color, persists as a key moment in the history of cinema: a work shot in a single shot, with no cut of any montage, narrated in real time and in a single set. Many directors who call themselves avant-garde should learn from the teacher. In The rope, the montage lives within the plane, which causes the camera to enclose or let its characters breathe in the frame. And it poses a bitter portrait of the human being around two young people who seek to commit the perfect crime to demonstrate their intellectual superiority.

Django Unchained. USA, 2012 (165 minutes). Director: Quentin Tarantino. Performers: Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson.
It was a matter of time before Quentin Tarantino fixed his gaze on the spaghetti western. Faithful to his predatory disposition of film referents, he proposes a vision of the West that is as linguistic as a prankster, which eliminates, in part, the dramatic rigor, an issue that is always secondary to the filmmaker. Tarantino shows his ability to handle the rhythm of the dialogues and boasts a staging of indisputable power, wrapped, yes, in his love of visual disproportion.
