Before Night Falls





Director - Julian Schnabel

Genre - Biography/Drama


Eccentric American artist turned filmmaker Julian Schnabel directed this piece of reel art. His sensibility is very European and curiously his films are stripped of anything even remotely resembling the style of an American production. Javier Bardem plays an aspiring writer in Cuba who is dealt a bad hand for being gay in a country which not only frown upon the inclination, it penalizes you severely for being one. Bardem is that rare actor who has an almost superhero-like ability to morph seamlessly into any given role.

5 STARS!
