Has anybody got some recommendations for Greek films? Preferably films of Greek directors and in the Greek language. It doesn't matter what year the films are from.
The Travelling Players, Stone Years, It's a Long Road, Z (Not a greek production but directed by a Greek and the fictionalized events actually happened in Greece so it's a must see), The Red Lanterns, Blood on the Land, Voyage to Cythera, Eternity and a Day, Rembetiko, Zorba the Greek, Never on Sunday, A Touch of Spice.
Agreed. The Fox guys really pushed the form brilliantly, Preminger included. Mankiewicz meanwhile ported the femme fatale over to women's dramedy which was similarly ingenious. Zanuck had such an amazing team there in the 40s, maybe the best lineup of studio directors ever, all of whom would go onto greater heights.
