What are people saying?

  • Lucas Granero's rating of the film Martyrdom and Pleasure

    Si en la clase popular antes retratada por Campusano había espacio para la aparición de super-hombres que vivían bajo sus propias leyes, la clase alta no accede a tales demostraciones de moralidad y viven en un estado de autodestrucción constante. Aquí agrega a su de por si densa mirada del mundo una extraordinaria dosis de cine fantástico y consigue un cuento de hadas dado vuelta con vampirismo se(n)xual incluído.
