It’s no secret, I watch a lot of TV. Even though I love a good book and am often jugging several titles at a time, there are few things I enjoy more than settling in for a long movie night.
My tastes are as wild and varied as any avid film buff, so I love to troll the net, indie theaters, and Netflix for my fix. While I’m certainly not against watching a big-budget Hollywood blockbuster (I mean, I appreciate things being blown up like the next woman), quirky comedies or an deeply emotional dramas are some of my favorites.
While I’m a huge fan of independent films, my latest obsession these past few months (ok, maybe a year) has been foreign films.
I’ve seen my fair share in the past, City of God, Skin, Dancehall Queen, and Amélie, just to name a few, but for a girl like me who loves to travel but doesn’t always have the funds to “change clothes and go,” the right movie can instantly transport you to exotic locales half a world away.
So, because I’m always on a quest to add more (great) films to my queue, I want to know what you’re watching Clutchettes and Gents.
What are some of your favorite foreign films?
