‘Aquaman’, ‘The Alley of Lost Souls’, ‘No Time to Die’ and more

A new weekend is just around the corner and at Espinof we could not miss our selection of the most outstanding cinema that can be seen these days. Today I have chosen 13 movies that arrive in theaters, are released in streaming, appear in physical format or are broadcast on a national Spanish television channel. Without further ado, I leave you with them.

In theaters

‘The alley of lost souls’ (‘Nightmare Alley’)

You always expect a lot from a new movie William of the Bull, but the expectations were especially high after winning the Oscar and there is something that does not quite fit. With an irreproachable technical finish and good performances by its cast, the film declines in its second act and never quite reaches the high level of its opening at the fair.

‘The Williams Method’ (‘King Richard’)

The movie with which Will Smith hopes to get his first Oscar. Part as a favorite with his interpretation of the father of tennis players Venus and Serena Williams and it is one of his best works, leaving aside any tic he might have and giving up charisma to pull on dramatic talent, but ‘The Williams Method’ is a better film when the leading role is more distributed…

‘Munich on the eve of a war’ (‘Munich: The Edge of War’)

When Netflix pre-releases one of its movies in theaters, it means that it has a lot of confidence in it. Here he offers a tale of espionage on the eve of World War II that hasn’t generated as much critical enthusiasm as might be expected, but the material is powerful and it never hurts to have George McKay Y Jeremy Irons in front of the cast.

in physical format

‘No time to die’

A (very) good farewell to Daniel Craig like James Bond in a movie that perhaps suffers slightly for being very thought out for it, but that does not mean that it works great as entertainment, especially during the minutes that it appears on the screen Ana de Armas. Of course, pity the lazy villain played by Rami Malek, and that his first appearance in the remarkable prologue did promise…

‘Don’t Breathe 2’

A more black-and-white sequel, without fear of provoking confusion in the viewer, offering a totally different vision than expected of the fearsome blind man played by Stephen Lang. Personally, I enjoyed the first installment more, but it is worth taking a look at the one that concerns us now.

‘Placid’

Placid

No one delayed the miseries of Franco’s Spain better than Berlanga, who always did it with the sharpest vision and with a masterful use of sequence shots. His filmography is full of great films, but ‘Plácido’ is especially unique, being not only his best work, but probably the best Spanish film of all time.

Kkklan infiltrator

An energetic movie Spike Lee in which he tells the striking true story of the first African-American police officer who managed to infiltrate the Ku Kux Klan.

Wesley Snipes He was ahead of the fashion of superhero movies with this bloody pastime, very daughter of his time in several aspects. A film that is not cut short going straight to the point and with an excessive but attractive villain played by Stephen Dorff.
