Wednesday Morning Inspiration: Foreign Crime Films
In the past two years I may have not seen two better films than Gomorrah and Un Prophete. Both films were highly acclaimed (Un Prophete was nominated for Best Foreign Film at this years Oscars and Gomorrah was "famously" snubbed last year) and deserved of even their highest praise. Don't get me wrong, I want to see Hot Tub Time Machine as much as the next bro, but sometimes you need a new perspective on things. I don't watch enough foreign films, but every time I do get around to sitting down with one and giving it the attention it deserves I see things in a new way - both of these films accomplish just that and in a very big way. Gammorah and Un Prophete couldn't come more highly recommended from yours truly and if you're one of those people who bitch about subtitles get over it. C'mon, would you rather be reading a book?
