Django Unchained is the most recent film by director Quentin Tarantino. The film exploit the subject of slavery. With a dream cast and spaghetti western plot Django Unchained prove to be a film about violence, about races, but most of all about the search of nothing. The film is fun, entertaining, fill with irony and great performances. Like Tarantino is filled with violence and that's who his world is. I love the film, but I don't consider a masterpiece. The film delivers what Is been told.

I love that kind of movies and helps me to scape from all the drama in other movies.
Great soundtrack as always and perfect achievement in technical aspects of the film

Silver Lining Playbook is a twisted romantic comedy about two very different disturbed people who are looking for answers. A man suffering a divorce and bipolar disorder and his equal a troubled widow.

This is the story a family united by football but divided by tragedies and destroyed relationships, the idea of a second chance, a dancing contest and the values human success no mater how small it is.

Great performances, Bradley Cooper did it, Jennifer Lawrence lovely and amazingly gorgeous as always. Robert De Niro is back in action and great Jacki Weaver. The big surprise is Chris Tucker part.

The biggest human hunting in history took place for several years thanks to the a woman who believe, in her capabilities to follow everything, but not focusing on a very important thing, herself.

Zero Dark Thirty tells the story of Maya a CIA agent to follows all the steps to chase one of the biggest enemy of the US, Osama Bin Laden. The narrative of the film explore periods from September 11, July 2005 bombing in London and several attacks to the US citizen in Pakistan.

Kathryn Bigelow deliver an amazing directing job, making the film a tense and stressing 8 year story. Jessica Chastain is marvelous, her melancholic look from the very beginning of the film, to her dramatic performance during investigation and interrogation till the end hem she finally breakdown in tears when finally achieve here biggest mission ever.

The film is powerful and technical success.

There is no way to express my confusion to this movie. Explore the nature of Scientology in a film could be made as a documentary. But digging the idea of create a dramatic plot as "The Master".

"The Cause" is what it called the group where Freddie Quell, Joaquin Phoenix character discover a life after post war and alcoholism. The leader of the cause Lancaster Dodd and Sue Dodd played by Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams represents a transition to Freddie. A way to escape from the insanity within but no the solution to his problems.

This is a very complex film
