DON’T LOOK UP

If one day, watching TV, they interrupt the programs to inform you that a comet is coming on earth what would you do? Would you believe who discovered this comet? Would you doubt? Would you go to the one you love to save them? By now it happens more and more often to read news about dangerous comets or meteorites. What attention do you give to such news? Do they shake you or do you remain impassive?
Have you ever known something important and tried to tell someone and not be believed? Sometimes certain things seem so strange and impossible to be true yet by the time you realize they are true it will be too late.

TRASHED

This film was released in 2012 when Greta Thumberg wasn't there yet and when many laughed when it came to the environment and pollution. Jeremy Irons toured the five continents to show what was happening but apparently the film didn't stir any conscience as we worsened the environmental situation instead of improving it. I hope that we can all understand that we have little time and that soon we will no longer have air, water or even food. And it won't happen in the distant future but tomorrow.

RIVER WIND

There is a very little known tragedy when it comes to violence against women - and it is always talked about too little - which is what has become in recent months the most dramatic and serious scandal in the entire history, probably of the whole of Canada: the thousands of native women disappeared into thin air and often, then, found, barbarously killed after probable rape. It is a painful wound and for this reason still partially removed for the civil and developed country of North America, one of the states with the highest quality of life on the planet, taken as an example to be a model for example of multi-ethnic and intercultural integration. .
An impressive, frightening and well-documented Report on these disappearances and killings of women in recent decades was published in June 2019, consisting of thousands of pages and wanted under the pressure of many associations and complaints of native groups or "native Canadians" by Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau. The commission of inquiry worked two years to produce this document full of testimonies, data and evidence. One of the conclusions relating to the Report is that an appeal to the entire Canadian population to be present in solidarity and participation so that this femicide often covered by silence or the comfortable desire not to know finally and definitively ends.
There is still a very tense climate between native communities and public institutions and, very often, between Canadian natives or Indians and the rest of the population, especially the white one, whether they are North Americans or Europeans does not matter.
The violence against these women finds reason in the inaction of the state and in colonialism with its related ideologies, based on an alleged superiority.
The exact number of missing or killed women is not known, nor will it probably ever be known (since many family members, for fear of further vengeful violence, did not speak said also because they knew that the investigations would not have been conducted with real zeal). This downward number is believed to be four thousand Native American women missing or killed.

PENNY DREADFUL

Penny Dreadful is a real masterpiece! A thriller series where, in a gothic and dark London, the paranormal meets and intertwines in the lives of some of the most terrifying characters of literature, keeping the viewer glued to the screen, sometimes even against his will.

The series takes its name and inspiration from the "penny dreadful" short horror novels distributed weekly at low prices to the London bourgeoisie of the nineteenth century. Products of dubious literary taste, but which gave birth to some scary characters such as vampires or Sweeney Todd.
An unrivaled Eva Green, who in 2016 won a Golden Globe for the role, in the role of Vanessa Ives is engaged in a constant search and fight against vampires, witches, immortal beasts and evil spirits. Accompanying her is Sir Malcolm Murray, father of a childhood friend, Ethan Chandler, an American with great skill with firearms, Abraham Van Helsing, Doctor Victor Frankenstein, busy bringing dead bodies to life, and a controversial Dorian Gray.
Vanessa has a special task: to fight against evil and make sure that it does not take possession of her. She prays day and night but she can't do it alone. So here comes he, the LUPUS DEI, the one who will help her stay in the light. But will the divine messenger be able to help her?

THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

How many times have you been told that if you persevere in something you will eventually fulfill your desires and you will finally find happiness. In the movie with Willy Smith this really happens but can you tell me that the same thing has happened to you too? Have you knocked on many doors and then in the end you are welcomed, valued, rich and happy? I doubt about it. However the story is very interesting.
