Steven Soderbergh Estados Unidos, 1991

Nino Lasso's rating of the film Kafka

Oh boy, this unbearable slog is Soderbergh's at his worst. It's barely 100 minutes long, but a terrible pacing and almost no plot development makes it feel like a lifetime of anguish. Iron's turn as the infamous insurance worker-turned-writer doesn't redeem the whole thing. The third act rolls like a jumble of setpieces borrowed from Terry Gilliam, but makes you feel truly grateful as the movie halts to a conclusion
