There’s no such thing as autobiography,

John Farr Movie Picks

John Farr's article on HuffPo basically quotes AO Scott. Scott's original article A Golden Age of Foreign Films, Mostly Unseen is a must read. You can skip Farr's comments and go right to his list and my ratings/comments;
The Band's Visit ... 3.5***
Czech Republic ... By the director of Closely Watched Trains
Tokyo Sonata ... K. Kurosawa
Mademoiselle Chambon ... can't wait to see this
Shirin ... I usually love films by Kiarostami
The Secret in Their Eyes ... 3.5***
Soul Kitchen ... 3***
Mid August Lunch ... 5***** and the reason I wrote this piece. LOVED this little film.
