¡Ya llegó el nuevo Cinemánico!

En esta edición exploramos parte de la extensa filmografía de la “abuela de la nueva ola francesa”, la polifacética y aun productiva Agnès Varda. Nos detenemos en la colección que edito The Criterion Collection que se llama “4 by Agnès Varda" que incluyen las películas La Pointe Courte (1956), Cléo de 5 à 7 (1962), Le Bonheur (1965), Sans toit ni loi [Vagabond] (1985).

(NOTA: Todas están disponibles para ver en linea a través de Hulu+ y si pulsan los enlaces provistos van directo a las mismas. De nada.)

También hablamos y reseñamos lo que vimos en agosto en la salas de cines de Puerto Rico. Del mundo comercial pasamos factura sobre el sorpresivo éxito del verano: Guardians of the Galaxy. Y hablando de sorpresas: el ambiciosos proyecto de Richard Linklater, Boyhood llegó a Puerto Rico y les contamos que pensamos.

Sin embargo, siempre nos llama la atención cuando algunas películas no llegan a nuestras salas. Le dedicamos tiempo a contarles de Snowpiercer de Bong Joon-ho y The Double de Richard Ayoade.

Y en el 3pa3: a propósito del inmenso fervor que ha causado el “soundtrack” de Guardians of the Galaxy, les decimos cuales son otras películas que tienen música que merecen sus propios casetes cósmicos…

Fellow Latino Tumblr enthusiasts:

Did you ever get caught up in the Ricky Martin bandwagon back on your formative years? Or did you stand distant and swore you hated the guy?

Did you ever caught yourselves digging his tunes so much you now know them by heart? Or maybe your eyes rolled everytime his tunes came up on the radio?

Either way, well, this post is for you.

Get your headphones out, put them on, and do listen to this rendition of Bella (know as She’s All I Ever Had on its english version).

The original song was released on his 1999 self-titled release as the second single and was an epic collaboration between Jon Secada, Draco Rosa and George Noriega.

This version right here is by local Puerto Rican indie producer and artist Hector “Stonetape” Hernandez.

Let me tell you, this guy took Bella to such great heights that you will surely appreciate this version even if you stood on the “I hate Ricky Martin” formation on those formative years…

…and if you loved him then you will be in for a very very nice surprise…

I assure you: you WILL be moved by it.

This is all part of a 16 track free download compilation called #IndieMartin that is out today on the World Wide Web courtesy of Discos Diáspora as a free download. Go here for more information!

Listen to: Bella by Stonetape


"He was too old for me, he’d had three wives, he drank, he was an actor and he was goyim," Bacall wrote in her autobiography of her prime passion.  All that meant nothing to the slinky 19-year-old model who met the 44-year-old star while filming To Have and Have Not.  They wed in 1945 (Bogie coolly muttered "hello, baby" at the end of the ceremony), and the two embarked on several delirious years running late with the Hollywood Rat Pack, saving time for two children.  "Bogie and I were ridiculous, holding hands like teenagers….we mooned and swooned, we really loved," Bacall has said.  The honeymoon ended in January 1957 when Bogart died of cancer.  Wrote Bacall: "No one has written a romance better than we lived it."  —People magazine



‘I started the shop in 1979,’ Vall explains. ‘Thirty five years ago.’ A short man with cropped grey hair, he seems much younger. Vall was born in Nema, far in the east of the country. ‘At that time, it took six days to travel to the capital,’ he says. Like so many others fleeing the drought and hardships of the countryside, Vall settled in Nouakchott. With a steady supply of music from Mali and Senegal, he built the Saphire D’Or.

‘I picked the name after the most beautiful thing, which is gold, naturally.’ Deejaying at soirées throughout the capital, Vall lists a number of the hotels and nightclubs where the Mauritanian youth partied late into the night: the Chinguetti, the Palmeri, the Maision de Jeune. Most of them no longer exist, torn down, paved over, and replaced.

Over the years, as vinyl faded into obscurity and Nouakchott’s old residents cast out their record collections, Vall was here to absorb them. ‘All the vinyl records that were in Mauritania, I pretty much have them here,’ he laughs. He began to sell dubbed cassettes. Customers could come in, browse the records and make their choice.
