Enjoy watching:

God of carnage

Bringing together a great director and a very competent cast, God of Carnage is a drama with great dialogue and excellent performances. In this short tape (less than 80 minutes), based on the homonymous play by Yasmina Reza (who also writes the screenplay alongside the director), we see parents desperate to resolve an unpleasant situation that arose with their children. The feature film, directed by Roman Polanski, begins with its brilliant introduction at the back of the opening credits. In the plot, two couples who know each other after the assault of the child of one of the parties, try to resolve a conversation totally distracted from the main objective.

A new awakening

With a convincing performance by its protagonist and a plot that moves and moves in many of its moments, A New Awakening, directed by the great Jodie Foster was one of the nicest surprises of 2011. In history, a man totally in a state of depression (in this case I don’t even think Freud explains it) after a suicide attempt, he sees in a puppet the solution to his problems.

Taxi driver

With exceptional performances by Robert de Niro and Jodie Foster, Martin Scorsese directs a film that portrays the life of a taxi driver in a violent survival scenario in one of the largest cities on the planet. A film to keep in your collection and to review at least once a year.


The bank safe contains only cash; Anyone who thinks of finding wealth there is frustrated. Going almost unnoticed years ago amid the countless weekly outings on the Brazilian circuit, Jogo do Dinheiro is a simple project that seeks to shed some light, in the form of criticism (or satire as you prefer), to the universe of money which has its daily climax in so talked about on Wall Street. Directed by actress and director Jodie Foster, the feature film gives a good insight into the predominant role of media and how this Fourth Estate can interfere in the routine of society.

The panic room

Leader Oscar winner Jodie Foster, (then) baby Kristen Stewart and Oscar winner Forest Whitaker, David Fincher has been widely regarded for his work. In the story, a woman and her daughter lock themselves in an ultra-protected room after their home is overrun by robbers. Thriller enjoyed great box office success around the world.


One of the great classics of cinema and without a doubt one of the greatest films of the 90s, in The Silence of the Lambs we follow an FBI agent who needs to seek information from a psychopathic psychiatrist, Dr. Hannibal. Read, in order to capture another. assassin. One of the great films of Foster’s career.


Foster’s first career Oscar is for her role in this powerful film which presents the saga of a woman in her fight for justice after being raped in a bar. Directed by Jonathan Kaplan with a screenplay by Tom Topor, the film is based on a real case.
