El debut de Octafonic sacude las bateas con poder y sofisticaci√≥n
Octafonic, el octeto liderado por Nicol√°s Sor√≠n deja el jazz y se mete de lleno a deformar el rock con mucho talento y garra, mientras que los platenses de Mostruo se meten en aguas m√°s relajadas con su nuevo trabajo “Profunda desorganizaci√≥n”.

¬†Before my recent viewing of ‚ÄúThe Cat Vanishes‚ÄĚ, I was unaware of its Argentinean director, Carlos Sorin.¬†¬†Apparently this film is a departure from the usual types of realistic and simple dramas that Sorin is known for and in a recent interview with him, he has stated that this one off experiment would be just that.¬†¬†The reason for this is because he found the stylized world of his Hitchcock homage to be an incredibly hard film to make.¬†¬†Watching the film you would not know it because Sorin has created such a great little film, he always seems in total control of it, and it is a shame that he will not make another suspense thriller like this again.¬†¬†When it comes to the homage of the work of master filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock, many have tried, but amazingly a lot fail, however Sorin has done a brilliant job of creating the wonderful suspense of a Hitchcock film without totally aping his style.

This nicely packaged film by veteran Sorin successfully balances humour and suspense in what might come across as a mere chamber play in lesser hands. Focusing on an well-respected academic just released from an institution after suffering a nervous breakdown and the translator wife whose own mental state deteriorates after he returns home and attempts to get his life back, it holds the viewer‚Äôs attention with subtle comic touches coexisting with chilling scenes of her hallucinations and more ambiguous shots of his blank face post-treatment.
