  1. Mtume Gant's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

    The musings of a relic fading off into the forgotten. A human look at what withers away when change comes....4.5

  2. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

    Cuban echo to May Days (1968) by W. KLEIN. Delicate, free, nostalgic, distant, beautiful. === Entre documentaire et fiction, délicatesse et liberté, ce film fait écho à Mai 68 de W. KLEIN, à Cuba.

  3. Julie Maje.'s rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

    watching Sergio drift through this amalgam of political, moral and sexual dilemmas is profoundly enriching not the least thanks to Tomás Gutiérrez Alea's unconventional stylistic approach.

  5. Adriana Venegas's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

  6. vigabrielo's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

    Como film me parece bueno, buena fotografía, el personaje es interesante, pero no estoy de acuerdo con la apología del subdesarrollo ligado con la cultura y el pensamiento...[...]

  7. Hugo Corona Platt's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

    La Nueva Ola a la cubana. Muy interesante ver la vida en La Habana en los inicios de su vida revolucionaria.

  8. mora.isadora@yahoo.com.mx's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

    Interesante ver cómo a pocos años de la Revolución, todo ya estaba jodido. Me gustan los monólogos y las reflexiones de Sergio. Simplemente me encantó.

  9. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

    The characters (and the culture) flirts with the possibility of genuine debate. I thought of Frederic Jameson: "History is what hurts."

  10. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

    An incredible piece of neorealism. Following the state of revolutionary Cuba through the perspective of Sergio gives insight on what it means to be seemingly alone in your ideals during a time where everything--from political life to social life--is underdeveloped. From the opening party to the splicing of documentary footage to the blatant repetition throughout, Alea knocked this out of the park.

  11. Scienceofphantoms's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

    We might say there's a politics to refusing the canonization of something that is so centered on high-class, masculine, guilt. At the same time, here is a profound piece of political and aesthetic criticism. Out-Godards Godard.

  12. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

    "This film is definitely utilizing elements - source material - that isn't too different from what Hollywood would be mining." http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2014/10/episode-34-tomas-gutierrez-aleas.html

  13. Muraki's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

  14. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

    Underdevelopment is a state of mind, which unfortunately still is alive & well in most latinamerican countries (and then some).

  15. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

    The protagonist is an elitist douchebag like all failed writers.

  16. Bram Vroonland's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

    I found this movie to be a very interesting movie as we see the disintegration of a person who no longer belongs in his original habitat. Also an interesting mix of New Wave and Neo-realism. Very worthwhile!

    i've got a weakness for existential films and this one is a true masterpiece.

  21. Atzin Ortiz González's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

    A fascinating, complex, multi-layered & though-provoking examination of post revolutionary Cuba masqueraded as as character study that blends fiction & documentary within its radical style.

  22. Héctor Olguín's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

    Un fresco retrato de la Cuba revolucionaria que resulta sencillo y redondo a la vez, con un ritmo que se logra mantener, apoyado de una narración en voz en off precisa y dinámica. Una película que tiene la virtud de entretener y hacer reflexionar desde una visión lejos de cualquier militancia.

  23. Emilionautilus's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

    Una de mis películas favoritas de toda la vida.

  24. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Memories of Underdevelopment

    Some quiet weeks in the life of a chauvinist punctuated by stabs of revolutionary violence.
