How true!

 

A couple of months ago, I watched *The Borrowed Castle.* It's a Hungarian movie with French subtitles and closed captions in English.

 

Fantastically funny movie! The double set of words didn't bother me at all.

From time to time, TCM does run a lot of foreign films. A few years back they did a Kurosawa festival, they did a Jean Gabin festival, they did a Mexican films of the revolution festival. The films of Satyajit Ray are upcoming. But, yes, I wouldn't mind more foreign films!

I'm with you 100%. I'd also like to see more silents.

 

And while I understand and sympathize with TCM's management's realization that most "casual viewers" want little more than an endless loop of the AFI's Top 100, I certainly wouldn't complain if silents and foreign films were mostly relegated to the wee hours and workday, especially since that's already when about 95% of the most interesting movies are slotted to begin with. At least that way anyone with a DVR or DVD recorder would have a chance at seeing them.
