    Awesome movie, thank you so much from Argentina!

    …so much fuzz and buzz all over the net for a film so full of good ole conservative moralism, and way worse than that, metaphysical pretensions…
    1952-2024: like _not_ a single moment has passed. Humanity is truly pathetic :-)

    Direction itself is absolutely impeccable however, no questions about that, Christensen is among the top 5 Argentinian directors ever…
    Si Muero Antes De Despertar =>
    Recent HDTVrip (from TCM), 720p, remastered (but with hardcoded eng subs, sadly). Have fun.

    Thank you so much for this gem, a little masterpiece from Argentina! Please, give us more of these old classics – that’s the reason I come here every Saturday morning, as I would go to church. (And post more on your other blog, katrl etc.)
    Many thanks, as well, for the excellent file you make: hi definition, commentary, extras. I really do appreciate!

    Anyone hear The Ramones in their head while looking at this?

    Very curious about this one. thank you!

    I would like to ask you: Could you get your hands on The Immortals (Os Imortais) 2003 ?
    It’s a great portuguese flick. Thank you!
