I'm kind of a foriegn movie snob. And I'm trying to catch up on all these movies everyone says are amazing that never come on the movie channels.
The Devil's Backbone was really good. It felt a little long and the pace was a little slow but it's really well done. I liked it a lot.
Fargo is great.
The Bicycle Thief is classic cinema. I first saw that in a film class. It's a great piece of cinema history.
La Vie En Rose - A bit long and again a little slow. Also the movie itself feels a little disjointed. That said, Marion Cotillard is AMAZING in it and its worth seeing just for her. I did like it though I don't know how often I could watch it. Mostly because Edith Piaf's life was quite sad - the movie's mood captures that. It's not an uplifter by any stretch =)
Great! Looks like I made some good choices. I started watching about two minutes of La Vie En Rose on the instant play, and stopped it with a "Holy crap, this is going to be heavy." I wanted to get the full value of it via big screen.
I've got a lot of "junk food " in my Netflix diet.
