I know I have been on a prolonged absence from this blog, but that is because I needed some rest 🙂 But I am back 🙂 I will resume Moviedrome Mondays beginning in early January of 2023. A shout out to Steve, a fellow visitor of this site (check out his youtube channel under the username giulio sacchi), I will be working on my review of the poliziottesschi entry The Climber soon 🙂
The other thing I wanted to explain is that according to this Sight & Sound magazine tweet (read here), it is not in August that the greatest films ever made according to the aforementioned magazine will be released, but in November of this year. I honestly had no idea, I just always assumed this was the time they usually did it, but I was proven wrong. The good news about that however, is that it gives everybody more time to come up with the titles that they want to choose as their 10 favorite films 🙂 As for myself, I have already finished writing short summaries for six of the 10 titles I chose. In other words, it is still a work in progress. Aside from that though, I will also be composing 10 choices for my favorite American/English-Language films and another 10 dedicated towards foreign films.
My question to all of my dear readers is this: What are your 10 favorite American/English-Language Films and favorite foreign films? 🙂

It’s good to hear from you John, I had wondered how you were. I’ll give your question some thought and get back to you.
My list was compiled in 2017 and still holds good for me, John.
Best wishes, Pete.
You’re back just as I’m going on hiatus…have fun while I’m away 🙂
Hi and have a good hiatus!
Yeah, I stick by my top ten favorite American from a few blogs back, but here’s my list of favorite foreign films:
La Femme Nikita
Wings of Desire
Let the Right One In
Weirdly, I remember very little about Betty Blue, which I saw 30 years ago with a boyfriend, but emblazoned in my mind, forever, are the last two lines. A cat sits on a table (I think) beside the man and says, “Are you writing?” and he says, “No, I’m thinking.”
More than 30 years later, clear as day. It’s strange, the things that remain…..
No problem Paul S 🙂 Did you ever read Sight & Sound magazine given that it is a UK publication? 🙂
That I do know Pete and I love your list 🙂 I was just curious which 10 English-Language films you would choose on one list and which 10 foreign films you would choose on the other 🙂
Enjoy your time off June 🙂
Interesting 🙂 I can see that you are quite a populist when it comes to these choices 🙂
Huh. I guess that’s true!
No sorry John I’ve never really read Sight & Sound Magazine. I used to leaf through it in the local library from time to time. I was an avid reader of Empire and Film Review magazine in the 90s.
Thank you John 🙂
It’s been a while since your last post John, I hope all is well..
Everything is Paul 🙂 I am finishing my list of my top 10 favorite films of all-time, which I plan to release next month 🙂 That explains my absence 🙂
