One of my favorite things to do in the Hamptons is to view international films. I loooove foreign films. Before moving to New York, I thought people who watched them were pretentious (yep - that was me - narrow-minded, judgmental). However, I discovered that I Really Like them. They're so different than the typical American Blockbuster and I like that quirky uniqueness. Foreign films have a different purview. Even the camera angles seem to view the world differently. I also like the fact that the actors and actresses look like real people. Did you see The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in Swedish? I liked the cast of characters. They were exactly as I imagined them in the book. Gritty. Real. If the characters had been portrayed by Brad and Angelina, the story wouldn't have been nearly as compelling. I can't wait to get back to the Sag Harbor Cinema and watch some films.
My faves: Coco Before Chanel,
& The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Painful, shocking, but twisted good:
