CRÍTICAS "EL BRAU BLAU"

LA RAZÓN, 13 DE MARZO.

«No evadas la forma. Repite hasta la saciedad. Tienes que liberarte del peso. Un ritual pleno y cerrado. Un lugar para perderse». Con este mantra que parece recién sacado de las «Notas sobre el cinematógrafo» de Bresson, escrito por el aprendiz de matador que protagoniza este singular «one-man-show» titulado «El brau blau», Daniel V. Villamediana sintetiza el espíritu zen de una película que representa la búsqueda interior del gesto taurino como movimiento único de trascendencia. No es casual que «El brau blau» tenga su génesis en un artículo que vinculaba el arte de José Tomás con la metafísica fílmica de Bresson, publicado por Villamediana en la desaparecida revista «Letras de cine». La película es la demostración de las teorías vertidas en ese texto, un ensayo sobre la tauromaquia entendida no sólo como una de las bellas artes, sino como filosofía de conocimiento de la verdad de las cosas y de uno mismo. Villamediana filma a su primo Víctor J. Vázquez preparándose para el enfrentamiento final con un toro invisible como si los preliminares tuvieran algo de liturgia religiosa. Vázquez recoge piedras, desayuna, lee y practica con su capote, y cada uno de sus actos parece el de un samurái de Melville, entrenando su conciencia para que entendamos que el baile del torero ante el toro es un duelo a muerte al filo de un abismo arenoso.

EL TORERO MINIMALISTA

«EL BRAU BLAU» QÜESTIONA DES D'UNA ESTÈTICA MINIMALISTA L'ARTIFICIALITAT DELS TÒPICS ARTÍSTICS QUE S'HAN CREAT AL VOLTANT DEL MÓN DELS BRAUS
Fa pocs dies, un representant del món de la política em preguntava com podia arribar a produir-se i a triomfar en festivals internacionals una pel•lícula com El brau blau, de Daniel V. Villamediana, rodada amb un pressupost sota mínims i en la qual teòricament no passa res. Abans de respondre a la qüestió, deixeu-me que expliqui simplificadament què és la pel•lícula en qüestió. El protagonista és un torero coix que després de veure torejar José Tomás a la Monumental de Barcelona s'instal•la en un mas a prop de Sant Martí Vell i es dedica a provar les passes i les estocades pròpies dels grans torejadors. Al final de la funció veiem la seva actuació, en una plaça construïda amb quatre pedres i unes bales de palla en les quals ha posat unes banyes de brau. La pel•lícula no té diàlegs, només hi ha un protagonista i està puntuada per un seguit de rètols amb frases de Juan Belmonte i altres figures mítiques. Malgrat que tot plegat pugui sorprendre, El brau blau considero que és una bona pel•lícula, molt millor que bajanades guanyadores d'Oscar com Slumdog millionaire.
El brau blau proposa dues reflexions importants. La primera té a veure amb una certa idea de com articular un cinema menor. Davant la impossibilitat de poder arribar a fites ambicioses, pot resultar molt més noble trobar un equilibri entre l'escassetat de materials i les troballes estètiques. La segona té a veure amb la idea que és possible crear un cinema minimalista, que posa en dubte la càrrega figurativa de la imatge per trobar solucions visuals que s'universalitzin a partir d'allò més simple. El brau blau qüestiona el sentit que té, actualment el fet de vendre els braus a partir de l'imaginari que han imposat gent com Antonio Gades, Cristina Hoyos o La Cuadra de Sevilla. Un imaginari que no fa més que recrear el tòpic i donar-hi un vernís cultural. Villamediana ho redueix tot a la mínima expressió, desconstrueix l'imaginari del món dels braus i acaba trobant un estrany radicalisme en la seva posada en escena que el posa en connexió amb allò més interessant del cinema independent. El pla final de la pel•lícula ens mostra com el torero coix és capaç de recuperar la dignitat, construint en solitari la posada en escena ritual d'una cursa de braus. La imatge té una estranya bellesa, probablement és la bellesa de l'esbós que lluita per imposar-se i per qüestionar l'artificialitat de les obres acabades.

I think everything composed was actually very reasonable.
However, what about this? suppose you were to write a killer headline?
I ain't suggesting your information is not good, but suppose you added a title that grabbed people's attention?
I mean "CR�TICAS "EL BRAU BLAU"" is a little
vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo's front page and see how they create article headlines to get people to click. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab readers interested about everything've written.
In my opinion, it could make your blog a little livelier.
