Description: One should describe Lost as a family documentary in the first person; but also as a movie that goes through a nice part of the history of Mexican cinema. Viviana García Besné says how it was that her family, ‘the Calderóns’, played an essential role in the production, distribution and exhibition of that primitive “other Hollywood”. Lost in Time is a touching movie because of those surprises the director finds every time she comes across with that invaluable family footage, which was more forgotten than lost; or when her relatives say stories she thought to be hilarious and made up, and which she soon finds out to be real (like a shattered romance between her grandmother and Ricardo Montalbán, for instance). García Besné makes the most out of the contrasts that surface between the various visual formats she uses and all that found footage she finds. Lost in Time is a master class of cinema, any method you look at it.

Just like the unforgettable and scary "AIDS: Monolith" public announcement ad, director Nicolas Roeg know uses of a more deeper and methaporical imagery to alarm audiences about the dangers of AIDS - one more time is John Hurt's haunting voice behind the PSA. The short compares AIDS and an iceberg, and one may wonder where's the connection. Thought it's only the iceberg who's on screen, the concept formed is to say about how anyone can carry a deadly and not present it because a) they don't know they have it or b) they know they have it but kept on going with careless unprotected sex activities; and those can mean one thing: that you cannot say things or a person's health just by what you can see just like an iceberg where you can only visualize the part above the ocean but what's beyond you'll never know the entire dimmension. Just like Harm quotes, "it's only the hint of the iceberg" and then the camera moves below the ocean. By that, it's reflecting the AIDS casualties and the more it should grow. "Iceberg" is more launch to discover the dangers of AIDS in a more subtle message and imagery, it goes deep in warning folks about how to protect yourself from the virus; unlike "Monolith" which was more frightening because it kept saying us that death is on the method and there was no possibility of escaping. Still isn't though time has changed things - yet the numbers hold on growing. I guess the trouble with this actual generation is the lack of adverts like these. I was born at the time when hearing about having the virus was a death sentence, and lived my early years hearing it on the news on how terribly devastating it was. But lived long enough to see science progress, fresh medicines on that which made HIV manageable and even one cure situation (that was an experiment revolving an HIV positive patient who also had leukemia and got a bone marrow transplant - the cure wasn't all that planned, it just happened). And I lived long enough to see some miracle situations of folks who acquired the syndrome back in those darkest years yet they're still hold on living.So, it's only when one gets exposed and wants to search out if they got it or not that the trouble comes to surface. But I guess history repeats itself but in worse ways. Those adverts might have helped a lot of people back then because they were important, relevant, chilling to the bone and never shying away from the reality of catching a deadly illness just because of nights of pleasure. Today, we have adverts but...they're not on TV anymore (in my country's situation they only present them during Carnival season - meaning that social/health systems think people only have sex during that part of the year); those adverts are in territories where you're getting inspected for a negative or a positive. Too late, isn't it? Works as a reflection when you're negative for the virus and to think about your next choices, alarming the anxiety you've been place through when you were about to obtain the test results. "Monolith" and "Iceberg" are nice yet sad reminders of a dark period, filled with discrimination on folks from the then groups of risk and AIDS victims. Those UK's advertisements are simply the best I've ever seen. Valid then and still valid now..."Don't Die of Ignorance". 9/10
