What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film Demónios da Liberdade

    In the post-revolution Portuguese cinema, this filmmaker (collaborating with Óscar Alves, via Cineground), was a special case, both in artistic and discursive terms. More politicized and interventionist than his friend and collaborator, he rehearsed in this little film a possibility to integrate an utopia of wishes with an equivalent film formulation, being still, in our formatted times, an example of modernity.
