The story of Pablo Escobar has been told before (and will be many times in future). How does De Aranoa’s drama compare to the giants of American gangster cinema?
Miloš Forman (originally from Czechoslovakia) died in April. Kino Art will show his masterpiece in Brno penitentiary this week. What’s the magic behind its success?
