    My movie viewing is in relation to the majority here.

    Asked questions on some movies that have gotten nowhere(given some of the movies, not really a shock), but...

    I mention a Korean masterpiece and that gets a conversation going(Wayward Cloud)...albeit a short conversation.

    Is Elvira Madigan, Exotica, As if I'm Not there, the films of Luna and Moodysson, etc really that esoteric?

    I've heard of Elvira Madigan, but that's all...

    For what it is worth. Anybody that has seen Forbidden Games(1952) should see As if I'm Not There.

    I'm certainly not the most knowledgeable member here but I like to think that I know a fair amount about movies of the last 50 or 60 years (and since I'm in my 30's, I obviously know more about the movies of the last 3 decades than anything else). That being said, based on your posts here, you know some seriously obscure movies. I mean I know some stuff but you leave me and probably nearly every other person here in the dust.

    Give you an idea how I find movies...

    Y Tu Mama Tambien. Great movie. Started looking for other movies with Gael.

    Gael led me to Dot the I.

    Dot the I led me to A Golpes (Natalia Verbeke)

    Which led to Mia Sarah(2006, Daniel Guzman)

    Which led to The Hold Up(Diana Palazon)

    Which leads back to Y Tu Mama Tambien(Verdu)
