What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film Libera

    A film that reveals and exposes itself, in successive layers of quotes and transfer processes, as an exercise of purely cinematic psychoanalysis. Often, too often, the quotation game is ruined by a statement of simple narcissistic gesture, but this is not the case: as with De Palma or Argento, but very differently from them, its constructive rhetoric is its inventive animism.
