Espinof recommends …
‘The infiltrator’ in Starzplay (by Albertini)
Year that passes and year that every time I am surprised more by the residue it leaves, and how little recognized it is, this series (well, there was going to be a season 2 but it was never known again) based on the novel by LeCarré. A splendid cast — Hugh Laurie, Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman, among others — plunges us into an elegant, sophisticated, and question-raising thriller in its six episodes.
‘Lux Æterna’ in Filmin (by Kiko Vega)
Gaspar Noé sets fire to a chaotic shoot with an epileptic comedy brimming with evil that has now become one of the indispensable films of a director more given to other styles. As happened with the extraordinary ‘Jack’s House’, by Lars von Trier, Noé has decided to take off his joker’s mask to put on his comedian’s jacket.
‘Lux Æterna’ is a round, wicked and short comedy. So short that it is doubly round and wicked.
