My Universities (Moi universiteti) is the last installment of Russian director Mark Donskoy's "Maxim Gorki" trilogy. Having endured a painful youth in My Childhood (1938) and a torturous sojourn as a serf in My Apprenticeship), future writer Gorki (Alexei Lyarsky) reaches maturity with an insatiable desire for personal and artistic freedom. The "university" of the title is actual the school of Hard Knocks, as Gorky goes to work in the shipyards and commisserates with the hard-drinking, philosophical dockworkers. Donskoy's depiction of street life under the Czarist regime of the late 19th century as unrelentingly depressing, filled with disenfranchised derelicts. This, of course, was meant to be a contrast to the "perfection" of the Stalin years. We can forgive this propagandizing in the light of Donskoy's indisputable cinematic brilliance. .

It's script is opaque, not letting you in really until the middle half to end of the film. The first couple of encounters with random women come of out of nowhere and just feel out of place (even though he's trying to promote character development, the problem is that we have no entrance for this character, thus how can he develop?) Somewhere inside Gallo's self-indulgence is a brilliant film. There are moments here and there that evoke inner turmoil, sadness, a great character in Bud Clay, and even though he shaved off twenty minutes from his original cut, this is still a pondering, non-lyrical somewhat mess. If only it could've gathered itself in script-form, I think it could've been something special.

Sergio R (nl) wrote: A hopeless, crude, dark and often dramatical take on the true events in the 1976 Argentina, La Noche de los Lpices is a gritty movie that is so popular in the continent as the leftism to be honest. But it doesn't stay just as a revolutionary movie about a complicated theme, it has compelling performances, memorable scenes and a complex, unforgettable and almost depressing ending.

One of these stories which is difficult to tell because it talks about common situations in cinema with dilemmas focused on defence of freedom (I presume they were not so common at that time, in the middle of the war), but which had to be told. Despite it, some interesting points.

Michelle Mylett as Sam is the main star as viewers figured it out way before the characters do that the so-called virus was a result of the characters going on-line social media through a website called "Redroom" which is supposed to be another 'Facebook'.
