  • josé neves's rating of the film No Rest for the Brave

    35mm, rewatched. Borges' "El jardín de senderos que se bifurcan", is the reference from which i never get out before this new watching (a basic reference of my formation), so much path that will give way to a new/similar path, interminable diegetic and visual delusions of the most idiosyncratic contemporary French filmmaker - according to it, one that interests me the most at the present time.

  • CarlosEsquives's rating of the film No Rest for the Brave

    Una comedia en clave onírica curiosa, a veces satírica, en otras absurda. Guiraudie ocasionalmente se perfila al cine de género, pero luego lo revierte para modificar la trama, revaluar a sus personajes para finalmente todo girar en torno a esa vigilia eterna y premeditada de un sujeto que soñó que moriría si soñara una vez más. Al igual que en anteriores y posteriores filmes, Guiraudie usa el ambiente rural.
