The time of the guns
Hour of the Gun. Director: John Sturges. Interpreters: James Garner, Jason Robards, Robert Ryan.
John Sturges delivers an excellent wéstern that follows in the footsteps of the legendary Wyatt Earp and Doc Hollyday. He finds them again after the duel of OK Corral, and discovers them declassed and tormented. A bitter and hopeless film, in a gloomy tone, in which the filmmaker seeks the precise framing, the right image. A masterpiece that defines a cinema that has already disappeared.

Spain, 2003 (98 minutes). Director: Achero Mañas. Interpreters: Óscar Jaenada, Ingrid Rubio, Adriana Domínguez, Juan Díaz.
After his deep portrait of the heart of a working-class neighborhood in the splendid The ball, Achero Mañas casts a heartfelt look inside an independent theater company of the seventies. And you can reproach the excessive ingenuity that emerges in some sequences, but there are no cinematographic times to despise a film filmed in an open grave, which embraces all possible risks, which plunges into the search for utopia by a group of young people to whom it is inevitable to shudder. November It is a cry of rebellion, irregular if you want, but as committed and torn as beautiful. A shout that cannot be tasted with the strict look of cinephilia, but must be enjoyed with the heart.
