The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
Cormac McCarthy’s bones and Ridley Scott's style do not make The Counselor something more than an interesting curiosity. A film that seems destined more to be remembered as that move where Cameron Diaz does that thing with the car than anything else.
Ellipsis is a 2006 Venezuelan film written, produced and directed by Eduardo Arias-Nath. It is the first Venezuelan film produced and distributed by 20th Century Fox. The script comes from a short film written by Arias-Nath called "Farewell to God". The script was originally written in English with the aim of producing in the U.S. but was soon moved back to Venezuela.
The executive producers were Eduardo Arias-Nath himself and Venezuelan director Alberto Arvelo (director of another popular Venezuelan film, Cyrano Fernandez).
By the end of 2006 Elipsis had become the second highest grossing Venezuelan film of the year in the country, under Francisco de Miranda, with $ 1,088,150,325 Bs and a total of 146 415 spectators after 8 weeks.
Elipsis is a movie of parallel and fragmented stories, linked by the relationship between former childhood friends, the celebrated actor Sebastian Castillo (Edgar Ramirez) and the frustrated fashion designer Galo Vidal (Erich Wildpret), whose roles are reversed as a result of the decisions they make. Sebastian's life is now in chaos, while the Galo is a success. They meet again when Sebastian comes to Gallo for help and they embark on a journey that will put their friendship and their lives at stake.
