Thursday, May 17, 2012 , Posted by LATINO EVENTS Y TESPIS MAGAZINE at 3:35 PM


Lovely Molly del director Eduardo Sánchez se estrena el 18 de Mayo  asi como también la super divertida Hysteria ( que disfruté un montón cuando la ví éste pasado Tribeca Film Festival), sobre el invento del vibrador en la inglaterra victoriana. Mayo nos trae, además, varias series de cine latinoamericano y mundial que valen la pena resaltar; Tropical Tuesdays comienza en Casa Mezcal los martes de Mayo y todos estamos esperando la Retrospectiva de Ridley Scott en la Film Society del Lincoln Center. Recomendamos:


* Lovely Molly > De Eduardo Sánchez > En cartelera Mayo 18 >  MOLLY.


When newlywed Molly Reynolds returns to her long-abandoned family home, frightful reminders of a nightmarish childhood begin seeping into her new life. She soon begins an inexorable descent into evil that blurs the lines between psychosis and possession.

* WERNER HERZOG > May 18 > Whitney Museum >  Biennial > HERZOG.


Inimitable filmmaker Werner Herzog, characterized as the “romantic visionary” of New German Cinema, is best known for his unorthodox approach to capturing authenticity in his films—close encounters with danger and submitting cast members to unusual training, among others—as well as his mixture of fact and fiction, in narrative and documentary films alike. The subject of his work, described as “an extended essay on the meaning of meaninglessness,” is often the extraordinary qualities of ordinary things around us. For this program, Herzog discusses his particular contributions to the Biennial and his thoughts on contemporary art with co-curators Elisabeth Sussman and Jay Sanders.

* HYSTERIA > En Cartelera Mayo 18 > HYSTERIA.


Hysteria is a romantic comedy with an accomplished cast led by Maggie Gyllenhaal, Hugh Dancy, Jonathan Pryce, Felicity Jones and Rupert Everett, that tells an untold tale of discovery - the surprising story of the birth of the electro-mechanical vibrator at the very peak of Victorian prudishness.

* HUMAN RIGHTS FILM FESTIVAL OF BARCELONA > Mayo 18-22 > Poet's Den Theater >HUMAN RIGHTS





* Ridley Scott Retrospective >  May 25 - June 3 > Film Society of Lincoln Center > RIDLEY.


A complete retrospective of three-time Oscar-nominee Ridley Scott, whose career began in the 70’s and who has continued to excite and enchant audiences with his remarkable storytelling ability. The retrospective will include the Director’s cut of KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, a new 35mm print of THELMA & LOUISE and the chance for fans to catch all of their favorites on the big screen.

“With ALIEN and BLADE RUNNER, Ridley Scott has been responsible for two of the most lasting and visionary works of science-fiction cinema,” said Film Society Associate Director of Programming Scott Foundas. “But as a filmmaker, he has seemed just as compelled by stories set in the distant past and those set in the combat zones of the present, always finding the human dimension in the mythic and the mythic dimension in the seemingly everyday. As he makes his long-awaited return to sci-fi with this summer’s highly anticipated PROMETHEUS, we’re delighted to pay tribute to Scott and his extraordinary career.”
