Maxi Gómez, mini Barça – AS.com

first_imgLionel Messi lamenting. Valencia 1-0 Barcelona | Maxi Gomez dropped the ball into the area after several rejections by the defenders, shot wide deflected, but the ball touched Alba and entered his goal. Maxi Gomez was at eleven meters and there was a giant Ter Stegen, who began his recital. Thanks to the German the Blaugrana team did not go to the locker room with the game lost and an irremediable break in Setién’s credit. The Blaugrana goalkeeper again saved his team against a rejection against his own goal from Piqué, then had a sensational double performance in which he also intervened the stick and finally cut another shot from far away from Coquelin. If Ter Stegen had his job out of his ears, Jaume could take a nap in the other goal. Not one Barça player passed near him until minute 42. Before, Messi fired two faults away. One went very high and the other at the hands of the goalkeeper.Given the total disruption, half an hour after the game, Setién decided to change the system he went out to play with and return to the old Valverde system, that was when Barça showed signs of not being dead. The Blaugrana team could go to rest giving thanks to the sky that the game continued 0-0. He had 45 minutes to save another grim afternoon. As soon as the second part began, the game got more uphill to Barcelona with Maxi’s goal against which Ter Stegen could do nothing this time because the ball touched Alba and dislodged him.From there, Barca had no choice but to react, not to be out of pride. Worse could not be played. A disastrous Arthur left his post to Arturo Vidal, who reactivated the culé mood.

Vidal was the only offensive argument of a club that had no striker on the bench to threaten a Valencia that was beginning to be scared of the Argentine, as always, the only culé argument.But the desire to go for the game stripped Barça behind and Maxi Gómez received a ball absolutely alone in a backlash and sentenced the game. It could have been worse for Barça, which conceded the third at the exit of a corner, but was canceled due to lack of Busquets. If he had climbed the scoreboard, Barça would have lost the lead without the need for Madrid to play. The first test of Setién ended in tragedy before the party of a Valencia that came from being thrashed by Mallorca a week ago and that did not win a match without Parejo on the grass since 2014 and that erased the Blaugrana team from the field winning only by 2 -0 thanks to the great performance of Ter Stegen. The Setien effect is not noticeable. Barça seems more lost to each game and it is not that it improves, it is that the few things he did well and that earned him to conquer the leadership have been forgotten.

If he was playing soccer, he failed resoundingly. The bland and barren monologue of Barça with the ball could have the objective of wearing out the opponent for, as the coach Blaugrana said in the previous “end up winning the game in the 80th minute”. Nor did it turn out, in 77 it was Valencia who killed the game.Setién’s tactic was a risky bet, especially if in defense you are a drama, as is the case at hand. After nine minutes of sleeping the sheep with the ball and not seeing the rival area or with spyglass, Barça lost a ball and the home team planted in three passes against Ter Stegen. Sergi Roberto collapsed before Gayà and Piqué made him a penalty.

MovieBob Reviews UNSANE 2018

first_img MovieBob Reviews: ‘Shadow’MovieBob Reviews: ‘The Curse of La Llorona’ Is Unsane good?Yes.What’s it about?Directed by Steven Soderbergh, the film stars Claire Foy as a young career woman making a free start in a small town after a frightening experience with a dangerous stalker. After one seemingly routine visit to a new therapist, she finds herself involuntarily committed to a shady local mental health facility which she soon learns something disturbing. Basically it’s part of a chain running an insurance scam whereby they find excuses to commit patients who can be framed to seem inclined to self-harm for however long their health plans will pay out claims. That’s bad enough, but she subsequently discovers that her stalker is impersonating a member of the orderly staff – and of course, no one will believe her because she’s “crazy” (and it’s a corrupt hospital in the middle of nowhere, anyway.)That sounds… unlikely.Apart from the stalker-infiltration, it’s based on several true stories of insurance scams that are not all that uncommon in the U.S.Yikes. But this isn’t a serious drama-type thing, no?Not with that title, no. This is Soderbergh doing essentially a 1970s B-movie, the type of thrillers made by latter-day Hitchcock inheritors like Dario Argento and particularly Brian DePalma: A lean, nasty, no-frills, low-budget thriller with a lurid plot that jumps off from ripped-from-the-headlines real events. Also, the whole thing has been shot with an iPhone – mostly to prove it could be done.Seriously? How does it look?Like it was shot with an iPhone. Gritty, immediate, stark. It’s not pretty, but it gives it an appropriately nasty, edgy sheen that feels right for the material – you feel like you want to wash the atmosphere of the film off of you afterwards, which I’d call an appropriate level of discomfort for the scenario.And it’s really just her trying to survive in the facility with this guy as one of the orderlies?Revealing any more would be giving away the whole point, but you go to movies like this for the cat-and-mouse game of how she’s going to get out of this nightmare and what lengths the maniac in question will go to in order to carry out… whatever it is he’s trying to carry out. And Soderbergh doesn’t hold back on teasing out the near misses, almost escapes, moments of hopelessness, dark turns, sinister reveals and grinding moments of suspense built around tiny would-be weapons of escape like shivs and cell phones. It’s tough, tense stuff.The mix of a lurid psychothriller staging and grimy low-tech “Everytown USA” iconography is genuinely unsettling. The immediacy of the digital photography makes it all just a little too real and unnerving (as does Soderberg’s decision to employ rapid, disorienting edits straight out of the old-school drive-in fare he’s paying homage to) Hell… it’s so authentic to the form, for a little bit there in Act III it even feels like it might’ve gone on for about 10 minutes and two fake-outs too long though eventually, you see what it’s up to.How are the actors?Very good – it’s not just a stylistic exercise, at all. Former SNL player Jay Pharaoh does a terrific supporting turn, Amy Irving turns up as Foy’s mother, Joshua Leonard – who… every time he shows up I feel like people just haven’t seen in anything since The Blair Witch – is the bad guy and he does a real good job.But it’s very much Claire Foy’s show, and she does a really good job. It’s a tough part, because even though she’s the hero a lot of the plot and circumstance and the overall “point” it’s trying to make requires her to be not really the greatest or most sympathetic person. And not just that but also not make the smartest decisions. She also has to do things that we might not want to think we’d do in desperate situations but that you very well might do. Again – part of what this is trying to get across is that you can be an imperfect person and not deserve to be locked-up and/or stalked. And she gets a terrific scene confronting the stalker not only about the violence but about how pathetic and delusional the impulses behind his obsession are that’s just really different from any other version of this kind of scene I can remember seeing elsewhere.So this one gets a recommendation?Yes. This is the kind of movie that it’s really kind of surprising to see them bother to put in a theater this time of year, but it’s also a movie that people will be talking about like “Whoa, how come I never heard about this!?” like a year from now, so you might as well check it out while you’ve got the chance.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
