    I wouldn't disagree; the most intelligent colleague I have ever known happened to be Icelandic.

    Well, the thing is. Citizen Kane is overwhelming in content in terms of influence. Most of its perfection lies in its form.

    There isn't any need to apologize. You wouldn't be the first to hate Kane at first sight; many people did. Truthfully speaking, Welles is more of a director's director, or a critic's director, so it...

    I don't disagree with you, those were great films that you listed, undoubtedly. Each of those films are part of a great director's oeuvre. As for Satyajit Ray, I'm not sure if he would belong with...

    Ah, I didn't mean it that way. I only meant that if one were to only watch two, then they would be those two.

    Kurosawa and Bergman are easily some of the greater foreign directors, but I don't think I would say they are the two greatest. Welles is easily the greatest director in the history of Cinema, and...

    Hm, I still wouldn't categorize it as a silent. It was quite an experimental sound process, but the sound added a great deal to the atmosphere.

    I find it comical that you happened to only mention two directors who have made their masterpieces in the 1990s. Their works are definitely worth-while watching for the sake of discovering...

    The Pevear/Volokhonsky is most likely the greater translation. They have won countless awards for translating Russian Literature, so you cannot go wrong.
