“Twelve Merciless Men”

Whats on TV today Tuesday January 3 2023

12 angry men. USA, 1957 (96 minutes). Director: Sydney Lumet. Cast: Henry Fonda, Lee J. Cobb, Ed Begley, Jack Warden, Martin Balsam.

A jury must acquit a defendant or sentence him to death, and must do so unanimously. This is how a film begins, which even at the age of sixty still offers cinema lessons and which also delivers a virulent criticism of lack of solidarity, prejudices and the death penalty. With his camera, Sidney Lumet creates a continuous suffocation between tense gestures and intimate fear, capturing ambiguous characters and therefore bringing them closer.

As a symbol of a cinema that has now disappeared, Gigante represents the art that lived in the Hollywood studios like few films.

Spain-France, 1997 (104 minutes). Director: Montxo Armendariz. Starring Andoni Erburu, Carmelo Gómez, Silvia Munt, Charo López, Victoria Peña.

In an age of films that promote excess and artificiality, we must thank Montxo Armendáriz for his commitment to depicting, with expressive simplicity, the abysses of man, the loss of innocence and the inevitability of the passage of time. Set in a town in rural Spain, his story features a child growing up contemplating the adult world; Adults who hide secrets and misfortunes. After all, it turns out that in the cinema it is really difficult to make films as simple as Secretos del Corazón.

‘Pending subject’

1672722173 115 Whats on TV today Tuesday January 3 2023

Spain, 1977 (104 minutes). Directed by Jose Luis García. Actors: José Sacristán, Fiorella Faltoyano.

From today’s perspective, Pending Subject has a lot to do with the situation. Garci achieved immense commercial success with a film that attempted to find lost time and was entrenched in the emotions of an entire generation. Perhaps Asignatura pending now only works for viewers of this period, even if Garci gives himself to an open grave as a director and shows conscientious affection for his characters.

‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. USA, 1974 (83 minutes). Directed by Tobe Hopper. Cast: Marilyn Burns, Allen Danziger, Paul A. Partain.

In 1974, a rookie director in his 30s revolutionized horror cinema with a film that still remains uncategorized to this day. A film that announces a ridiculous budget, inflated by a staging that moves in a nightmarish world, on a journey that shows terror but suggests much more. The shocked viewer’s imagination does the rest, creating more horrors, accompanying a group of young people who encounter horror in its purest form on a peaceful excursion.
