(gb) wrote: Between Your Legs (1999) Entre las Piernas Miranda is a crew member of a nightly radio programmme. She and her husband Felix, a cop, are parents of a girl. Miranda's daily dog walking strolls are excuses to pursue sexual encounters with men, who she readily discards afterwards. In order to deal with her sex addiction, she signs up for therapy. Also in the group is Javier, a successful scriptwriter and producer who is a sex-phone junkie. The two misfits hit off and a steamy affair ensues. But things get a little complicated when Javier finds out that this phone sex trysts have been secretly taped and being distributed all over Madrid, and that his ex-wife is living with his business partner. Elsewhere, while investigating a murder case, Felix discovers Miranda's affair with Javier. I felt betrayed at the end when I noticed the strong homophobic sentiment of the movie. It just shows how the Spanish society continues being so conservative. Like the prejudices behind this movie, the first negative reactions in Spain to the movie "Bad Education," where the main actors behave homosexually and bisexually, just serves to prove that a large number of people in Spain are still trapped by the sexual mores of the Catholic Church. But besides the issue of homosexuality, the smoking like chimneys, and the fact that the thriller could have been made better, the movie is one of the best in its genre. I specially liked Victoria Abril's performance. In Abril, the movie took a thirty-something women and made her the sexual object and the central sexual figure of the narrative. This contrasts with Hollywood's productions in which most females playing such roles are teenagers, twenty-something, or extremely glamorous. I think this movie illustrates by contrast how the U.S. society is so obsessed with youth, to the detriment of older women in particular.

(au) wrote: It's an interesting tale but the effects are rather awful and the film is slow and mind numbing. Not a lot of good scenes and the characters are boring.
(fr) wrote: The 1944 Three Caballeros is that one Disney animated classics that many have heard about, but few have actually seen. The second of Walt Disney's goodwill South-of-the-Border awareness movies, (the first being Saludos Amigos,) this one is also a combination of live action footage from Latin American countries and animated segments. The animated portions are brilliantly crafted, particularly the colorful, Fantasia-esque Mexican patterns and dancing cacti towards the end of the movie, which is part of Donald Duck's dreamlike hallucination. This film was so ahead of its time, it elicited feelings of "psychedelic" before that term was even popularized two decades later. Also featured is a short featurette about a boy with a flying donkey, as well as comical Sterling Hathaway-narrated featurette about a penguin seeking to find a warmer climate to live in. Donald Duck is the primary character for much of the film, though we get a reappearance from Jose Carioca the parrot gentleman from Saludos Amigos, as well as gun-toting, loud-mouthed Panchito Pistoles, a Mexican rooster wearing a giant sombrero. This movie is a lot of fun to watch, though it does at times, (particularly the Baa sequence,) feel like a favorable social studies lesson to ease political tensions during the war-era of the 1940s.

This was the first one that started to get great hype and was supposed to be a big deal for John Woo's American debut but I must say that I never liked this movie or got into it.
