  2. marinos@agxivatein.com's rating of the film Chronicle of a Boy Alone

    Masterfully shot, directed and acted (even if the actors are mostly children). Probably one of the best Argentinian movies I've seen.

  3. kartina obskura's rating of the film Chronicle of a Boy Alone

    oh that look in the end! contempt for the world that once again betrayed him.

  4. Vincent T's rating of the film Chronicle of a Boy Alone

    the narrative is somewhat refreshing because it doesn't follow a typical "psychological agitation and exploitation" path, but somehow the film still doesn't quite manage to rid itself of neorealist sentiment.

  5. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Chronicle of a Boy Alone

    La rutina melancólica de un niño se va mudando por espacios sórdidos y dramáticos. Su visita a tres lugares aparentemente distintos simulan ser contextos carcelarios. La libertad no es más que una fantasía futil. Favio se orienta a un cine social que documenta con desesperanza. La influencia al neorrealismo italiano es clara. Tanto el contexto como los otros personajes manifiestan una motivación a esta degradación.

  6. Brotherdeacon's rating of the film Chronicle of a Boy Alone

    It's uber smash-mouth study hall in dirty underpants, it's bad-blood bicker, it's cowardly group-think on broken glass. Tyranny is that which we hate when we can't spell economic deformity ratio, or dialectical nosebleed. Freedom is a movie about trauma, cigarros, drunken ghosts, Peronistas, a borrowed Italian horse, barrio dicks in mud, rented girls, a river of excrement and a song about a drum that's pretty okay.
