In Nightmare Alley, an ambitious man from the carnival world (Bradley Cooper), with a natural penchant for manipulating people with just a few words, combines with an even more dangerous psychiatrist (Cate Blanchett).
The carnival team also includes Molly (Rooney Mara), presenter Clem (Willem Dafoe) and Ron Perlman as Bruno “The Iron Man”.
Guillermo del Toro takes the shot again. A GREAT movie that from my point of view is the real winner of this year’s Oscar. An incredible duo of Bradley Cooper and the spectacular Cate Blanchett. Memorable exchange of remarks between the two. The film begins with Bradley carrying a corpse into a room and setting fire to the house and then taking his belongings and leaving for the world. The whole action takes place between 1939-1941. Stanton ‘Stan’ Carlisle (Cooper) then arrives at a provincial carnival where he learns some tricks that end up being used in life. But the cunning and effeminate Stan (Patitu ‘) ends up going from the fortune teller Zeena (Toni Collette) to Molly (Rooney Mara) and ends up directly in the arms of the psychologist Lilith Ritter (Cate Blanchett). It’s a movie from which you have a lot to learn and from which the following conclusion emerges: Director Del Toro liked Creanga’s story “The bear fooled by the fox” when he was little. I give her 10 reminders with Moderna and in the end I forgot to tell you something important. Cate Blanchett plays for all the money plus the meal vouchers.
