  • A Useful Life

    2010. Uruguay. Directed by Federico Veiroj. With Jorge Jellinek. Montevideo’s Cinemateca Uruguaya, active for over 50 years, now faces a dwindling audience and diminishing financial support. When the ax finally falls, Jorge (real-life Uruguayan film critic Jellinek), who has worked at the theater for 25 years, finds himself unmoored in the “real world.” Shot in sumptuous black and white and cropped to the Academy aspect ratio popular in the 1950s, Veiroj’s second feature is a loving, technically masterful homage to the fading physical world—and enduring memory—of art house cinema. In Spanish; English subtitles. 67 min.
