#44 Cashback - Sean Ellis

Total (Cineclub)

Analizamos la película "Cashback" de 2008. Lo bueno, lo malo, lo que haríamos "mejor", curiosidades, confesiones, puntuación y mucho más! Reseña: Una película rescatable que aunque no innova demasiado, debemos reconocer que si lo hace, la presentación del protagonista a través de sus pensamientos enlazando el guion es interesante y mantiene el hilo conductor, también le suma mucho el estilo narrativo sazonado con flashbacks que aunque básicos, enriquecen el menaje y justifican el pensamiento del protagonista y su relación con el arte y el cuerpo femenino. Otro aspecto positivo es el montaje y lo bien logrados que están los efectos al momento de paralizar el tiempo. Dentro de los aspectos negativos, no queda muy claro el mensaje sobre la visión del arte que quiere proponer el director, podemos entender lo que sucede en la película, pero nos hace cuestionarnos si la película transmite una mirada machista, gordofobica y estereotipada del cuerpo femenino, algo que no podemos dejar de mencionar.

Sean Ellis Part 1 (replay) The HBO series Trial 4 is fatally slanted toward the defendant

Boston Confidential Beantown's True Crime Podcast

The HBO film Trial 4, is a virtual hagiography for Sean Ellis. The HBO-Netflix documentary is so slanted in favor of Sean Ellis it is difficult to digest. In order to believe Sean Ellis is innocent, you'd have to believe that his uncle, best friend, and girlfriend were (are) lying. To our knowledge none of these witnesses, that tied Ellis directly to the brutal 1993, homicide recanted their testimony, why? Sean Ellis's co-defendant told the police Sean Ellis shot Det. Mulligan five times in the face, Sean's girlfriend testified Sean brought the guns to her house, she left her fingerprint on the weapon. Sean's Uncle Dave asked Sean where the guns were, Sean gave detailed information as to where and how the guns were hidden, that is exactly how the weapons were recovered. So The question is where is the mystery in this case? It is true that corrupt police detectives were involved in Sean Ellis's case, the remedy for that is a retrial, but claims of actual innocence? That is simply a gigantic leap in logic.Commonwealth v Ellis https://bit.ly/2ROmpVWCommonwealth v. Paterson https://bit.ly/3pLY3bO
