I want to go to there.

I wonder why the Coen's new movie A Serious Man won't be playing.

All the great European auteurs are in

Von Trier, Haneke, Noe, Resnais and Almodovar. These guys are true fucking auteurs because they make the films they want to make.

By the way, I reckon Park "Old Boy" Chan-Wook's "Thirst" will be awesome!
