    Favorite Foreign Films

    Being in a Russian Film Study class this semester has really opened my eyes on Foreign Films. My favorites of the Semester have been

    Moscow Doesn't Believe In Tears
    Russian Ark (A movie with NO CUTS. Seriously they did a two hour movie without stopping the camera)
    The Italian
    The Barber of Siberia
    Ivan Vasilievich Changes His Occupation

    They are all actually fantastic movies and from Russia no less!

    So what are your favorite foreign films?


    "Be passionate and bold. Always keep learning. You stop doing useful things if you don't learn. So the last part to me is the key, especially if you have had some initial success. It becomes even more critical that you have the learning 'bit' always switched on."

    Yojimbo is probably my second favorite foreign film.

    Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.

    The original English (England) version of Death at a Funeral is hilarious also...

    The Motorcycle Diaries

    My cousin, who grew up in Caracas, Venezuela, had me watch this when she was teaching me Spanish - I learned a lot of this language and also got a lot out of the movie...Great movie.


    Cyclone fan since 1964 and proud of it!
