  1. João R's rating of the film The Baron

    Had it not lost touch with its intentions (that were almost settled) and its story, this movie could've been so much greater - as it promises to be from the start. Although the atmosphere is so well crafted, it's, regrettably, misguided by the dizziness created by its sequences. Melo's performance is radiant and the ending is satisfying.

  2. Gia de Almeida's rating of the film The Baron

    Não há palavras para descrever o Nuno Melo.

  4. Sara Lucas's rating of the film The Baron

  5. Mauro Pagano's rating of the film The Baron

    ci sarebbero anche due o tre cose interessanti ma il montaggio porcamadonna

  6. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film The Baron

  7. Balthaz21's rating of the film The Baron

  8. Rafael Fonseca's rating of the film The Baron

    Os exageros estilísticos seriam maioritariamente em vão não fosse pelo Nuno Melo. Ele É o Barão, e a atenção que domina com os seus monólogos segura as pontas de uma produção "draculiana" de outra forma medíocre que se leva a sério sem o fazer propriamente. Em suma, um filme B como deve ser.

  9. Eduardo A.'s rating of the film The Baron

    Technically flawless - great cast performances, great photography, make-up, editing, mixing... What it lacks is entertainment.

  10. tiagovitoria's rating of the film The Baron

    In the first sight I became captive of the film's visual aesthetic. However the kind of masterpiece I was thinking just fell short on its ambitions. Edgar Pêra overdoes his own technique. Too much overlapping and too much crossfading going on. Nonetheless, a flawless Nuno Melo and some strokes of brilliance throughout the movie.

  11. Gonçalo Quintas's rating of the film The Baron

    Gostei mais do final do que o resto do filme. A quantidade de cross fades, e sobreposições torna o filme cansativo. Nada de extraordinário.

  12. pedro eira's rating of the film The Baron

    o original devia ser um bom filme , talvez mesmo uma relíquia. Não que esteja contra a reedição, apenas contra o modo como foi feita. Demasiado experimental.

  13. Duarte Lima's rating of the film The Baron

    Hertzog's Nosferatu meets Mulholland Drive and Cinema Noir film in Portuguese with English subtitles that are insane. I liked it

  14. Carlos Figueiredo's rating of the film The Baron

    Excellent exercise in style and expressionist/noir aesthetics. Nuno Melo is colossal as The Baron and proves that, when working with good directors, portuguese actors can be outstanding. The music by Vozes da Rádio is ominous and enhances the film's opressive atmosphere. The moment when the Tuna plays the drums is one of the greatest in contemporary portuguese cinema.

  15. dedalusjmmr's rating of the film The Baron

    3 em 5, apesar de algumas inconsistências e de um «estilo» excessivo para uma longa metragem. Não é, sócios e sócias? It's the final countdown.

  16. Markus Keuschnigg's rating of the film The Baron

    One of my favorite films of this year: the fictional history of a US-American director called Valerie Lewton (!) and her lost Portuguese movie, "The Baron" is designed as a reconstruction of the recently found print including double projections. It's amazing how spot-on director Pera is in evoking the visual extravaganza of Val Lewton's productions and how hallucinogenic his own movie has become. Mesmerizing!
