Still talking about today’s shit movies, Reader Bruce T. sends an email which adds:
I spent 22 years restoring and preserving classic films for The Library of Congress. I’ve seen many. Don’t fall into the lazy habit, as I did for decades, of almost exclusively watching movies with English dialogue. I’ve discovered a whole new world of sophisticated plots, consummate acting, and beautiful cinematography in films from Japan, Russia, Poland, the Czech Republic, and others. The best part? Even the newest productions are not ‘woke’!
Good points, one and all. (Although I’m reminded of that wonderful opinion: “If the furriners had had anything of value to say, they’d have made their movies in English.” )
I’ll be getting a list of titles the above from Bruce in the near future, which I’ll be happy to include in a post.
Watch this space.
