Description: The theme of the delicious Hungarian fantasy movie "A Very Moral Night," made in 1977 and actually testing at the Public Theater, should well be innocence, even if the action does take zone in a bordello. It is a nice bordello, so sweet and wholesome that it seems a zone of pure beauty and Eden-like charm.

Description: Like Light Physical Injuries, The Wall Driller explores the compensatory machismo of Hungary’s official leading class. Szomjas’s flashiest, most problematic movie says the sad tale of a proletarian malcontent ensconced in a monstrously depressing housing project who—even less effectually than the heroes of Bald-Dog Rock—attempts to change his life. Buying a power drill and slinging it across his shoulder like the anti-hero of a spaghetti western, he turns entrepreneur, boring holes in his neighbors’ walls so that they can hang mirrors or pictures. The metaphor is played for max smarmy innuendo, particularly once the wall driller gets mixed up with the prize member of a local prostitution ring staffed mainly by girls on maternity leave. (Nothing if not topical, the movie followed by less than a year the sensational trial of the “Cuki Cuties,” a bevy of hookers who operated out of an espresso bar on the Yugoslav border.

Description: It is 1989, the year of the demise of socialism in eastern Europe. Nevertheless, the one theme of Junk Film does not refer to this historical moment of high ideals, quite the contrary, the wild, burlesque of a motif-mozaic seems merely to stick it’s tongue out at the arrogant users of politics who have their heads stuck in the clouds. The movie rudely points out the mystery and unapproachability surrounding the every-day existence of politics. The stage is a greasy, falling-down block of a pub named the Gólya and its instant surroundings.
Description: Via the Fresh York Times: "...the movie has the gratis form of the agitprop films made by Jean-Luc Godard in the late 1960's and early 1970's. At the center of it is the tiny fictional tale of Raffael, who stands for everything rotten in the newly liberalized Hungarian society. He is the owner of an amazingly profitable video store in Budapast and, it seems, a speculator in currencies."

A very necessary film in Colombian movie history. Cepeda Samudio plays havoc with time and classic narration. We can speak barely of argument as we know it usually. We can tell either it is surrealistic... With no sound "the blue lobster" (la langosta azul) remains as a rare, unique, work of (film)art. Zone and time: A city at the coast, frozen in time. Nothing apparently ever happens there and it seems it will never do. Characters: An American, the hotel man, the girl, the cat, the lobster, the sorcerer and the tiny boy. As a weak budget movie (rare for 1954 in Colombia)we can speak proudly of an authentic conception of what a large movie industry is and what is not because of local conditions and our respect for local traditions.
