All About My Mother is massive arse. Matter of Life and Death is a silly bloody film
Glad you found and like my Renoir list. As you're from Warwick, you may be interested in my list The Dark Dismal Dungeon of Disquiet Despair and Doom, if you can risk the depression of it all- the castle gets a mention.
Good to find Mizoguchi among your favourites, and Renoir and Satyajit Ray...
Deary me...is that a 1 star rating for 'Conan The Destroyer'? Shame on you Porter, the film is clearly worthy of 5 stars... One of Schwarzenegger's finest moments, it's right up there with 'Junior'... hahahaha
