  1. i dont think anybody should be stereotyping that people at a young age dont enjoy silents: im 19 years old, and i have a silent movie collection that contains more than one hundred films. i love silent films, and i think that they are now only appreciated by people that really love film. i am one of those people. my favorite directors are erich von stroheim and charlie chaplin, and ive seen multiple films by murnau, lang, pabst, griffith, sjostrom, vidor, niblo. they have now evolved into an acquired taste, and it is very understandalble that people dont enjoy them anymore. unless it's a ch
  2. Persona (1966) Directed by Ingmar bergman Starring: Liv Ullman, bibi Andersson, Gunnar bjornstrand MGM DVD Release Persona is a mind blowing film.

  5. why are foreign films referred to as being a completely different genre than american films? to me, film is film, whether it is in english, french, german, dutch, whatever. It doesnt make sense how a film that was made by victor sjostrom in sweden is considered foreign, while the films that he made in america arent, even though they came from the same mind. i dont think it should be a seperate category at all. film is film. to me, the only difference is the language, and thats not much of a difference at all. im not bashing the name of this forum, which is foreign language films, because tha
