You're obviously well versed in foreign cinema. May I ask, which other directors do you like? Do you have a favourite film making nation?
I'm from Europe, so "foreign" is less foreign for me
And actually, when I was at University, for 2 years I listened to almost no classical music at all. Instead, I watched 1-3 films a day (seriously!
) - I twice bought a year-pass to a Warsaw cinema specializing in the history of cinematography. It was great fun but afterwards the prices changed and I had to give up.
Anyway, if I had to make a list of favorites, it would have to be very long
. So I'll just give you the top name for now. My favorite film director (by far!) is Ingmar Bergman. But stay away from his earliest movies - he made a few really corny comedies and melodramas at the beginning. Unbearable to watch! And as far as comedies are concerned, his later ones aren't much better either, IMO.
I've forgotten a lot of the stuff I've seen at the "Iluzjon" (that was the name of the cinema) but I'm still pretty well versed in Polish cinema (I think), so if you ever need any recommendations in that department, shoot away!
