Hey Steverino -- As always a most impressive list! You've gotta be the most objective guy out there -- no heavy lobbying done here! But dude, I thought I'd seen all the biggies. I was all prepared for you and you throw me The Deep Blue Sea, Holy Motors, In the Family, Tabu... Where does an old guy find this stuff?! I asked the kid at the local Multiplex and got deer in the headlights. Help us in Peoria, man! Keep up the great work. All the best, Allnut

Americans do not like movies in foreign languages because they don't like having to read subtitles; and besides, foreigners can't do anything better than Americans so why should Americans have to read all those words? Car chases and Batman flying around Gotham don't need no stinkin' words, so why does Amour?
