Movies from comedy to drama to your favorite Hollyweird Star.

A true film buff! I've not seen all those Hong Sang-soo films, but I've seen

many: "Hotel by the Sea" is perhaps my favorite. Renoir made an excellent, strange film in India that Satjavit Ray credits with obliquely influencing him to pursue film, "The River." It's a good counterpoint to the Ray oeuvre.

If you've not seen Bela Tarr films, you've missed some great ones. Lucrecia Martel (Argentina) is also 1st tier; "Zama" is a masterpiece.

Noir? Best one I've seen in years (and it's not new) is the Brazilian gem, "Man of the Year." It has a gritty realism that Hollywood long ago abandoned.
