Reading about these I hoped there would be more to critique. It's sad most of these seem to be so, I don't know, empty?

I'm happy with the Argentine films popping up, despite that trailer being a little awkwardly put together.. I also think I'd watch Black Coal, Thin Ice if I had the chance. Not sure I'd seek it out on my own yet.

I think BLACK COAL, THIN ICE is a must see, especially now that it has won the Golden Bear.

Bonjour Tristesse said...

Indeed.

Hi glad you're back. You've been missed in the blogosphere. Grand Budapest Hotel is my personal favorite. I've also been back to your other site, "stupid blogger tricks." I posted a question there a few months ago. Thanks.

Germany, wooooo! Oh and The Grand Budapest Hotel, can't wait to see that one!
