Gothika (2003)

The same lame old story, but beautifully told. Great filmmaking and great acting by Natalie Portman.

It's almost a documentary about the Italian modern politics :D

Pretty funny but the ending, instead of being surprising, is rather disappointing [link]
Aira's rating:
People who added this item 2444 Average listal rating (1450 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.5

Nice scenes, beautiful colors but a big fault: it's not able to express the real soul (the missing soul) of Grenouille, making him too rational and almost trascendental while he was and animal who acted by instinct [link]

Aira's rating:
original title: El secreto de sus ojos

The story of a man who never forgot a case of murder and rape and ends up undercovering a terrible secret, a perfect revenge. Great direction that created a fine noir atmosphere and some memorable scenes, like the man chase at the stadium [link]

Boooring film. It has nothing to do with Kitano Takeshi's "Zatoichi". Too bad, because Katori Shingo is a good actor but in this film was totally idle [link]
