Hello Readers!

The Academy Award shortlist for Best Foreign Language Film has been released.  The list is as follows:

 Belgium, The Broken Circle Breakdown, Felix van Groeningen, director
 Bosnia and Herzegovina, An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker, Danis Tanovic, director
 Cambodia, The Missing Picture, Rithy Panh, director
 Denmark, The Hunt, Thomas Vinterberg, director
 Germany, Two Lives, Georg Maas, director
 Hong Kong, The Grandmaster, Wong Kar-wai, director
 Hungary, The Notebook, Janos Szasz, director
 Italy, The Great Beauty, Paolo Sorrentino, director
 Palestine, Omar, Hany Abu-Assad, director

The list features some excellent films, but many great ones were left off.  Therefore, I am going to publish a series of reviews of films submitted by their countries that didn't make the shortlist.  I will have a review of the Mexican submission, Cannes Best Director award-winner, Heli, up shortly.  By the end, I should have 5-10 reviews.

Happy Holidays!

Joshua Handler
