Rebel Without a Cause
Rebel Without a Cause. USA, 1955 (106 minutes). Director: Nicholas Ray. Interpreters: James Dean, Natalie Wood.
Nicholas Ray’s name should bring hundreds of allegedly bold filmmakers to their knees. Virulent and untamed, Ray traveled against the tide and turned the cinema into the center of his existence, to the point of allowing Wim Wenders to film it, agonizing and dying, in the memorable Lightning over water. The poetry that beat in the images of all his works explodes until reaching an unusual emotional tear in Rebel without cause, portrait of a group of young people under the halo of doom, characters as rebellious as the author who films them, confronted with a stifled society and shaken by swings of hope and frustration.

The silence of the lambs
The Silence of the Lambs. USA, 1990 (115 minutes). Director: Jonathan Demme. Interpreters: Anthony Hopkins, Jodie Foster.
After The silence of the lambs, most of the film serial killers were reduced to simple schoolboys. The first installment of the adventures of Hannibal Lecter revolutionized the cinema of the nineties and served as a germ for the arrival, four years later, of another emblem as Seven. Part of his merit already lived in the pages of the homonymous novel by Thomas Harris, but the film knows how to maintain an almost unbearable narrative tension thanks to a staging that makes sense of the close-ups and camera movements and the enormous works of Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster.

Spain, 2011 (97 minutes). Director: Chema de la Peña. Interpreters: Paco Tous, Juan Diego, Fernando Cayo, Ginés García Millán.
When Spanish cinema is criticized for its lack of contact with reality and the little attention given to recent history, Chema de la Peña’s effort to elaborate a chronicle of one of the key moments of the last years of history is commendable. from Spain. 23-F It is far from being a round film, suffering from a certain telephone aesthetic, but its foundations rest on a cast of actors who grow their frames, as is the case of a memorable Juan Diego and some imposing Ginés García Millán and Paco Tous.
