The 51 edition of the International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia —Sitges 2018 to friends— now sailing wind on the stern, and the cinema screens of the Catalan town will shine unabated for 10 days the film genre will be the star of the show, and during which the partner John Tones and server we will be comentándoos what have seemed to us the films that we can take it —for good, to regulate, and, even for evil.
In regards to me personally, so far, I don’t have any complaints with the tapes that I have been able to kick me in the mouth. And is that, in addition to a ‘Suspiria’ that has left me as confused as a marvel, I have been able to enjoy the last of the unique and inimitable Quentin Dupieux, remake chinese mythical ‘A Better Tomorrow’ directed by John Woo in 1986, and the startling new tape of Bart Leyton, director of ‘The imposter’.
‘Au Post! (Keep an Eye Out)’
One of the biggest surprises —that went sadly unnoticed— so far this decade, it was ‘The imposter’: the opera prima of a Bart Leyton which has fascinated many with its impressive play of masks, in which lying and deceit go beyond the narrative to be applied directly on the nature of the film, its convoluted shape and, above all, his background.
With his new feature film, ‘American Animals’, Leyton leads to the end of the technical and constitutional trickery that we captured in 2012, giving a punch on the table that resizes the boundaries between fiction and documentary which so many have tried to side of a thousand and one ways; all with a thriller that is hilarious and brilliant in multiple aspects, ranging from their game with the point of view, amazing concept on paper, its massive cast and a reading on the art and the nature of the artist that you can actually touch the fiber more sensitive to the topic.
