I am a huge fan of films. However, my tastes have grown far more "sophisticated" (if you will allow me the term) over the years. I especially enjoy films from Spain, France, and Italy. Of course, I enjoy a good film regardless of where it was made. This category will list my favourite tiles, their directors, actors, etc.
