  • José Neves's rating of the film The Crowded Train

    As Vidor's "The Crowd" and Chaplin's "Modern Times", a film that impresses with its fair and fierce criticism of contemporary times and the society that determines and frames it, discovering in the cinema the weapon that exposes, refutes and corrodes. Since its beginning - a triumphal demonstrative sequence of the ways that time doesn't change -, there is no contemplation, made with a magnificent film construction.
