Harvey Movie Review

HARVEY is a 1950 comedy-drama movie in which Elwood P. Dowd (James Stewart)has a very good imaginary friend: an invisible giant rabbit called indeed, Harvey. He is in reality, a pooka, a benign creature derived from the Celtic Mythology which can bring either good or bad fortune. All the family is really worried about Elwood, they are so ashamed when he starts talking alone to this mysterious creature in front of other persons. His family will try to figure out if this situation is a consequence of drinking alcohol or simply, a mental illness such as schizophrenia.

Elwood’s sister, Veta, after so many years of dealing with this situation, starts watching the rabbit too. Additionally, Harvey has the ability to stop clocks, so every person who can see him cannot lose any single minute of his precious time. As Elwood often quotes: “For years I had to decide on being either smart or pleasant and I recommend being pleasant.”

What Makes Harvey A Good Movie To Watch?

Harvey is an exquisite piece of classical English comedy of the 20th century which transports us to amazing psychological games in which you don’t know if Elwood is just playing, pretending or really he’s insane. The fundamentals of valuable human company acquire a new, nice, and qualified perspective since Harvey is used to avoid unpleasant topics or required explanations that will serve Elwood to make himself understood easier and in good dialectics.

Common people are surprised of the high-degree of thoughts he could elaborate in company of Harvey: together, such as in a Platonic cave, the couple will fly with the golden wings of thought to the highest mountains and hills of human understanding probing the limits of what is imaginable, everything in an environment of comedy farces, intrigues and confusions which sometimes materialize as if the giant pooka really exists and could taste as a delightful joke … or as the deepest drama!

Juan Charrasqueado 1948 – Review

Spread The Love For Movies

Movie – Juan Charrasqueado

Direction – Ernesto Cortázar

Country – Mexico

Language – Spanish

Cast – Pedro Armendáriz, Miroslava, Fernando Soto

Releasing Year – 1948

Genre –  Western, Drama

Juan Charrasqueado 1948 Review –

“Juan Charrasqueado” (played by multiple-award winner, Pedro Armendariz) is the story of a Mexican ‘charro’, a countryside ranch man, who has just arrived from a long travel far away and meets at his hometown a lot of old friends and partners, which, now watch him suspiciously as a cocky, opportunistic and scrounger loudmouthed man. Once established again in town, he’ll be only busy playing cards at the “cantina” (bar), getting drunk and “enjoying” the pleasures of life, until he realizes he has a deep love with María (played by the beautiful Slavic actress, Miroslava). Unfortunately, Maria’s brothers have planned to marry her with a wealthy ranch owner. A real duel will start between Juan and the brothers of María, until he decides to kidnap her. Juan is having more and more troubles all around the town and people will plan to stop him doing always all what he wants. The results could be of fatal and terrible consequences.

The film takes us to the Mexican countryside of the 1940s with all the atmosphere it implies: women flirting, gossiping and having fun in the town center; ranch men betting at cockfights; singing, gambling and fighting at the “cantinas” and the multiple adventures struggling with drunk-men. A beautiful story is behind this scenario: the one of a real, traditional, Mexican “macho” who falls in love with the most beautiful girl in town. The main character will have to watch himself in the mirror, realize what does he can offer María and make strong decisions about their future. Decisions that could make arise the envy and hate of an entire town that is not disposed to tolerate outstanding demonstrations of foolish virility, more a result of a national complex than the noble reality it involves. The film offers an interesting perspective of the psychology of the Mexican “macho” behavior, so selfish and strong in appearance and so weak and sensible in his deep soul.”

Direction and Screenplay by – Rafael Romero Marchent (as Rafael R. Marchent)

Country – Mexico, Spain

Language – Spanish

Cast – Santo, Carlos Romero Marchent, Helga Liné

Releasing Year – 1973

Santo contra el doctor Muerte Storyline

“Santo, the famous Mexican wrestling fighter, is an undercover INTERPOL agent whose mission is to discover the mysterious case of painting forgery throughout the Europe. While having amazing success in Madrid during his fights, he discovers that in Paris, previous and similar cases have been ongoing since many years.

So, he decides to go to the Louvre to have a talk with the curator who explains him those previous cases and the person suspected to have committed those infractions, sometimes in Moscow, sometimes while shipping the art pieces: the suspected criminal is a dangerous “doctor in art and chemistry” from Central Europe who uses, this time, a German art ‘restaurateur’ to accomplish his robberies.

This gang lives in a castle nearby Madrid where they’ve kidnapped beautiful women to use them as models. The models, trapped in a dungeon, are also used later for “scientific” purposes, killed and dissolved in acid. Santo and his partner, Paul, will have to go inside the castle, arrest the criminals and finish their job.

Santo contra el doctor Muerte Review

The film gives us a very nice approach of Mexican imagination in criminal matters and the ‘superheroes’ that are needed to solve the clues and enigmas. Santo contra el doctor Muerte is a nice movie which provides big entertainment from the beginning to the end, despite some script incongruities which make the story bigger than in what it should focus. The surreal and tacky scenes of a masked fighter going through classy European streets, talking seriously with art specialists and going around through airports and flying business cannot be missed!”

“Natalia loves fashion and modeling. She is a single mother, part of the aspirational segment population of large Polish cities. Kuba, the father of her baby, is a skateboarder who thinks all day long about his skateboard, being with friends and hanging around with other girls.

Natalia is alone and has to deal with poverty, in addition to Kuba’s indifference and immaturity. Kuba’s mother offers Natalia a monthly payment for the support of the baby. The lack of money corrupts the poor and scared girl, who little by little has more needs. Later, she meets Martyna, a cocaine-addicted night owl, who introduces her to an employee of a clothing store who gives her a job.  Natalia will fall more and more in an abyss that will carry her to chaos and make her ‘stronger’ … for worse?

Bejbi Blues Movie Review

Excellent realistic scenarios which show the dangers of emptiness and selfishness in lone teens. The fact this is the first time on screen for many actors of Bejbi Blues gives us another dimension to this masterpiece. Acclaimed in Toronto Film Festival and Berlin Film Festival, Bejbi Blues is a nice one time watch modern Polish drama. The vacuity of spirit and thus, self-destructive personality of the main character invites an aspirational young society to revalue and rethink morals to rise and consequently, still needs to improve its conception of family and motherhood from the basis, respecting the solidarity that has to prevail in every democratic State.”
