A good movie

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. I actually saw the damned thing in the movie theater when it was released. Anyway, the tricky thing about this movie is that I had no idea who the hell was Reinaldo Arenas before watching the damned thing.

Description: Before Night Falls is a touching screen adaptation of the autobiography of gay Cuban novelist and poet Reinaldo Arenas that convincingly shows how freedom is the air that writers must breathe in order to fully express their creative souls. Through extreme rises and falls—impoverished youth to lively gay freedom in mid-1950's Cuba; imprisonment during Castro's antigay regime; moving to New York City in 1980; followed by a battle with AIDS and subsequent suicide in 1990—Arenas is always writing, his typewriter his most faithful lover and weapon against the dark forces that surround him.

“To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. I actually saw the damned thing in the movie theater when it was released. Anyway, the tricky thing about this movie is that I had no idea who the hell was Reinaldo Arenas before watching the damned thing. On top of that, Arenas was a poet and this Art is probably the most difficult to bring up into a movie, in the contrary to music or painting. Still, Javier Bardem was really impressive and this movie would launch his international career resulting in an Academy Award for his part in ‘No Country for Old Men’. Concerning Julian Schnabel, who was himself a major artist in the 80’s , it seems that he had decided to make only biopics focusing on other artists like this one. Event” read more
