I'll admit it right up front.  Some people cringe at the mere thought of movies from other countries that make audiences read subtitles.

This presentation, enhanced with PowerPoint images and film clips and lasting a little over an hour, is designed to show you what you've been missing if you suffer from the No Foreign Films stigma.
 
Open your minds a little and you'll be introduced to magnificent filmmaking and performances in classics like "Metropolis" and "The 400 Blows" and sentimental gems such as "Cinema Paradiso."
 
Take a chance, you might just discover something wonderful like "Wings of Desire," a personal favorite.

Cosby300To mention just a few:  Major indie studio movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's trial for alleged sexual abuses of dozens of female complainants is coming up soon.  Excellent actor Kevin Spacey, facing charges for allegedly groping a teenage boy, has seen his "House of Cards" crumble.  And, sadly, Bill Cosby, formerly known as "America's Dad," is doing 3-to-10 in the slammer after being convicted on three counts of sexual assault.

What about those I'm calling the #Them Too perps?  I had a great time over at HarborChase of the Park Cities retirement community (in the Dallas area) recently with my Movie Memories presentation titled "Hollywood's Hot Movie Scandals."
