Carlos' Recent Reviews
What a complete bore to follow in endless landscape shots such a detestable character who has the nerve to treat her photographer like garbage when she is being financed by his magazine to go on a fanciful journey that seems exciting only to herself and no one else.
It takes a very insightful director to tackle different social matters in this subtle way, never preaching or offering solutions, with a story that unfolds in a careful pace and gives us time to connect with the characters as we closely observe their lives and actions.
Carlos' Favorite Movies
The original theatrical version is surely great, a beautiful homage to cinema, but check out the extended director's cut, a new and quite different experience that gives much more space to the love story, resulting in a much richer and complete narrative. This is certainly one of my favourite films of all time.
I really cannot understand how overlooked and underrated this film is. This is nothing less than an extraordinary masterpiece in its own ways; a fascinating and powerful epic about honor, loyalty, redemption and love, beautifully photographed, greatly acted and so wonderfully scripted.
