Un chien andalou, 1929
(dir. by Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí)
Thanks to all of you who have joined Caroline and me in her World Cinema Series and my Foreign Film Festival this year. I hope you're all enjoying the movie talk! For those who haven't yet participated but think you might might like to, please note that joining in on the fun couldn't be easier. Just write-up a review of one or more foreign films that you've watched this month ("foreign" meaning the director's country of birth or residence is different from your own) and then send us the link(s) to your post(s) via comments form or e-mail. I'll add the info below during the course of the month and Caroline will do the same over at her blog.
A Special Announcement
Stu of Winstonsdad's Blog and I will be hosting a "watchalong" of Carlos Saura's 1976 Spanish drama Cría cuervos on the weekend of Friday, July 6th thru Sunday, July 8th as part of the Spanish Lit Month festivities mentioned elsewhere. The film is available as a Criterion Collection DVD and carried by Netflix here in the States and comes highly recommended by yours truly--though I hope you won't hold that against it! Anyway, if you care to participate in the watchalong, just post your review of the film during the weekend in question and then let me know. Group read-like discussions of the movie will take place at participating blogs throughout that weekend. Should be fun--hope you can join us.
