(events of cinema and history)

Pedro Costa, Cavalo Dinheiro (2014)

(most amusing)

Richard Linklater, Boyhood (2014)

Martin Scorsese, The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

Bobby and Peter Farrelly, Dumb and Dumber To (2014)

 * I’d like to mention three other brazilian films particularly important to me this year: A Vizinhança do Tigre,

Ela Volta na Quinta, Branco Sai, Preto Fica. I decided to chose Anita’s film because it represents better than any

another the recent efforts to reveal the silenced histories of brazilian dictatorship, which started in 1964 and

lasted for more than two decades.

CLOE MASOTTA

 

No order

 

Soy un poco reacia a hacer este tipo de listas de lo que se supone que es para mí "lo mejor" del año. Por eso, este

2014 propongo una lista de películas que querría que otros que no las han visto sintiesen curiosidad por ver.

Pues, al fin y al cabo, considero que la labor de todo crítico y analista, igual que lo podría ser la de un docente, es

transmitir una pasión. Y estas películas, desde mi punto de vista, contienen diversos ingredientes que las

convierten en aquello que querría que otros gozasen, después de haberlas visto este año en salas y festivales.
