I'm rather hesitant to link to a friend's personal social network blog, so instead I'll just quote from it. After praising Carlos Reygadas and writing that the New York Film Festival "is having one of it's greatest years in recent memory," here's film distributor Ryan Werner (IFC, Palm, Wellspring, Shooting Gallery...) on world cinema:
It's been a remarkable year for international cinema and it just keeps getting better. It's ironic that foreign films are having such a crisis now because they've never been better. If you are reading this, please make it a point to go see a film with subtitles this week, you won't be sorry.
